Island People Co is an artisanal-luxury brand based in Dubai, UAE, that focuses on sustainable and earth-conscious practices. Our founder and creative director, Kaushali Fernando, is committed to creating a community-minded brand that prioritizes people and the planet. By collaborating with heritage weavers, family-run workshops, small women-owned businesses, and weaving collectives, our mission is to provide customers with the highest quality handcrafted textiles and goods that draw inspiration from Sri Lanka's rich culture, art, and traditions that span over 3000 years.
Our commitment to quality is evident in the care and attention to detail we give to each of our products. The techniques we use have been passed down through generations, and we aim to merge these ancient skills with modern design. Our textiles are luxurious, timeless, and unique. At Island People Co, our passion for natural materials, expert craftsmanship, and sustainable production is woven into the very fabric of our brand.
As a brand, we are proud of our commitment to sustainability, ethical practices, and quality. We believe that the origin of our products is just as important as their aesthetic value, which is why we work closely with skilled female artisans in Sri Lanka. We are committed to promoting fair trade practices and empowering the communities in which our artisans live and work. We believe that by investing in our brand, our customers can feel good knowing that they are making a positive impact on the world while enjoying the beauty and quality of our sustainable textiles.
Our customers can choose from a range of high-quality, durable products that are made to last a lifetime. From our handwoven beach wraps and scarves to our beautifully crafted home decor, each item is a modern heirloom that can be cherished for generations to come.
