With the endless events that's been happening globally, we wanted to stay awake and active. To play our small part in helping others where we can. So we created our 'Envisions'; each envision focuses on a particular event close to our hearts. A big chunk of profit goes to a non-profit organization we'll appropriately appoint.
UCC Envision 1.1 | The Lone Koala
- Uncommon Commons

- Sale price

Story | It was when we were having the massive bushfires around Australia that Uncommon Commons was born. I was on holiday in New York City where I once called home. I realized my heart would race back to the Koalas from time to time.
Why Koalas? This is open for interpretations! I wouldn't be able to exactly describe it.
For Impact | Purchase for a good cause and receive a truly unique and definitely wearable design. 50% of the profits from these sales will go to the Koala Hospital in Port Macquarie, NSW, Australia.
Canvas | Everlane Organic Cotton Crew: Midweight fabric, durable organic cotton that gets softer over time. This T-shirt is certified organic—from seed to shirt. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certification takes over a year to account for every step of production—from the processing of certified organic fiber into yarn, to the dyehouses, mills, factories, and printers.
Sizing | XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL
Note: As we personally hand printing your shirt and avoid overproduction, we compile, shop for the T-shirts, and then dedicate some studio times getting the image on. Orders are shipped altogether on the last Friday of each month. We promise it's worth the wait!

A Clean Slate
After just over 6 years of running high-fashion multi branded retail, we slowly got awakened by the behaviour that we see in ourselves and our nevertheless amazing customers. We started to wonder. And as we read, conversed, delved more into it, we learnt more and there's no going back to what used to be. So we started to once again, daydream.
How can we make this better; with purpose?
Spending almost a year of trying to think about creating a 'sustainable', 'ethical', 'responsible', etc. etc. brand, we never really could pin point a clear spot in our hearts. It seemed redundant; with so many beautiful ethical brands already existing then can it really be truthfully sustainable to produce even more? So we got discouraged a little. But wait..
How can we integrate our expertise; do good at the same time?
This never gets old: 'Shopping is our research!'. And as much as it sounds like a glorified excuse, it is true! We ventured to New York City in hopes to gain inspiration. With 'no pressure, no expectation' kind of style and called it a 'wolliday'. NYC is one of the most resourceful places in the globe for all things rare, limited, personalised, etc. And then one fine afternoon in SoHo between Prince & Spring, the lightbulb moment finally came.
How can we create for all; deliver one-of-a-kind originals that make sense?
