Smaller retailers are banding together in collaborative stores to save on rent

Home baker Dewi Imelda Wadhwa of And All Things Delicious was looking for tea towels to enhance the presentation of her baked goods for Christmas when she chanced upon the handprinted textiles of Fictive Fingers online.

The 35-year-old mother of two was pleasantly surprised to find that the colourful screenprinted tea towels were made here.

"I didn't have to buy thousands of tea towels from India," she says with a laugh.

Fictive Fingers is helmed by sisters Aisah and Hani Dalduri, 22 and 29 respectively.
