When we started Cambridge Uncommon, we set out to design great, comfortable clothes and then the pandemic came along and made us rethink everything. We realized how important it is to surround yourself with things that make you feel happy (this counts for people too!) While we still love an amazing sweatshirt, we also love unique finds that make us smile and we especially love supporting other ethically run small businesses.
In this unsettled world, we want to be a happy place for you where you can discover original clothes, fun housewares, jewelry and accessories that will bring a smile to your face and have your friends asking "where did you find that?"
Our clothing is designed by us, in small-batch, limited runs from our partners in the US and Peru. The materials we use mean a lot to us. We love our 100% Peruvian cotton apparel, which is among the best cotton in the world, and it creates a lot less plastic waste in our oceans. We also use recycled materials where we can, to minimize the environmental impact so you can look good AND feel good wearing our clothes. We handpick beautifully unique items for our happy place and are proud to include ethically made pieces from over a dozen small women-owned businesses around the world.
WHO WE ARE
We are two women building our own happy place. Friends since we were four, we came together again after years spent on our own separate corporate adventures with a shared idea for something...uncommon. As women in the workplace, the road can be a little bumpy, and as working moms even more so. We realized that it was time to carve our own paths and that not only could we do it together but also while supporting other makers too. So here we are countless designs later, lots of eyerolls about who is funnier, with endless coffees drunk (a few margaritas too) and a place that makes us happy.
