wear it for years and still feel like you're wearing for the first time, here's how
We started Fictive Fingers because we refuse to participate in the race for speed and abundance.
We choose to take more time but use less resources and generate less waste to create something that will last you more years.
It means working intimately with one of the oldest natural fabric in the world. Not just any but high-grade linen cultivated in Europe where the flax plant naturally thrives, requiring minimal water and many of the steps are still done by hand. Linen was the fabric of choice before the mass-production of cotton and now the rise of synthetic fabric but none of them weaves into your life the way linen does (find out more in our product page).
It also means paring down an idea to its simplest form, making the best use of every inch of fabric and most importantly, making each piece one at a time. We design with you in mind, not to stock up inventory. When you order, we get to work. From our hands to yours, it’d always be worth the wait. Because there’s an inherent comfort in welcoming something made with care and time into your life.
What brought us here is a fairly sceptical view of how things run, always asking questions and we invite you to be inquisitive too.
The heart of our work here is to inspire you to make informed decisions and be proud of them. We spent years connecting with thousands of people from all walks of life to understand their relationship with the fabric that touches their skin every day while studying the global textile ecosystem from production, use to waste, so we can help you see the ripple effect of the choices you make.
We don’t have all the answers but we’re here to turn questions into conversations that have transformed the lives of our community and can transform yours too.
We’re Hani and Aisah Dalduri, sister duo textile designers in Singapore.
We grew up and still live in a quiet town far different from how the country’s being marketed in tourism ads. Every window in the house frames the eye-soothing greenery that surrounds us and natural light pours in without us needing to turn on the light switch until much later or when it rains.
Our lives are simple and close to nature: we love the sense of community in public housing; eating good, real food cooked at home; and going through the day wearing comfortable, natural clothes. So our work, everything we do as Fictive Fingers, is part of who we are. Our logo is handwritten by Hani with charcoal.
