COMMON HOURS partners with the most prestigious fabric mills and the most notable artisans and specialists the world over, working with rare, interesting and high-quality materials.

We have worked with heritage houses Maison Hurel in France, Saiei Orimono in Japan and Bonaudo in Italy to supply its fabrications for our first collection. These included the most refined French silk, the softest Italian leather, and the word's thinnest silk, translucent 'fairy feather’.

For our second offering, COMMON HOURS has continued to work with Maison Hurel and Maison Bucol, an illustrious fabric mill established in the 19th Century in France and owned by the Hermès Group. For its bespoke placement prints, COMMON HOURS has collaborated with both a prestigious printing mill in Como, Italy (who have realised iconic motifs for Dries Van Noten, Versace and Alexander McQueen), as well as Maison Bucol, who also specialise in fine printing.

For our third collection, COMMON HOURS commenced a partnership with the illustrious Italian mill Bonnotto. Fabric development has expanded to include custom flocking, dip-dyed and yarn-dyed fabrications.

Currently under development for our fourth offering, COMMON HOURS has collaborated with velvet specialists and living heritage house Bouton Renaud, as well as Piacenza, a notable mill specialising in wool, cashmere, printing and jacquard, who supply for all major international luxury houses.

Custom Dip-Dye

Our opera cloak dress is crafted from high-sheen, heavyweight dip-died cotton blend, milled in Paris at Maison Hurel and featuring a custom gradient detail developed exclusively for COMMON HOURS.

A paper-like feel

A lightweight cotton of paper-like appeal features in the COMMON HOURS Magic Dress. Milled in Italy by one of the country's leading fabric suppliers, the fabric is chintzed, creating a glazed finish that adds a stiff, luxurious handle. The fabric is recycled and biodegradable.

Japanese 'Fairy Feather'

The most diaphanous fabric offers endless possibilities; extravagantly sheer and delicate in nature, our Japanese 'Fairy Feather' is the world's finest and lightest silk, sourced from Saiei Orimono. A special piece for the common hours.

Liquid Lurex

Decadent lurex from Maison Bucol is used extensively in our second collection. Copious amounts of fabric luxuriously drape around the body, cocooning the wearer in liquid metal. Maison Bucol is an illustrious European fabric mill, established in 19th Century France and owned by the Hermès Group.

Fine Italian Mesh

Fine mesh sourced from Como, Italy, is exquisitely printed with intricate levels of detail. Flora and wovens motifs combine with minuscule writing, which at first resembles a colony of tiny ants crawling amongst gardenia branches.

Luxurious Italian silk from Como is used in our 'Crimson and Claret' gown, featuring a rich gradient and peony petals.

The work of fine taxidermy artists Darwin. Sinke & van Tongeren featured in our collaboration gown, 'Darwin and Unknown'.

Italian silk and fine hand-embroidery by Chanakya artisans in India merge in our 'Darwin and Unknown' robe.
