No Borders relaunches as global marketplace
Vintage store No Borders is relaunching as a multi-brand global marketplace for fashion, design, and furniture from up-and-coming brands as well as vintage with the aim of facilitating global cultural exchange.
After closing its brick-and-mortar store in Mumbai during the pandemic, No Borders has returned as an online marketplace dedicated to sustainable design, the business announced on Instagram. No Borders founder Kanika Karvinkop has joined forces with engineer, model, and DJ, Seema Hari to launch the new marketplace and the two have built a community of sustainable sellers including Amesh, Suket Dhir, and Leh Studios for the new launch.
“In the last two years, the demand for sustainable fashion started expanding to a point where I felt an urgent need to ramp up our operations to serve this new market of young, conscious buyers,” Karvinkop told Vogue India. “It was time to move past the limits of a physical store, and expand digitally to scale our services to meet this increased demand globally by connecting the demand directly to the artists and designers we admired, using technology.”
Harnessing Hari’s experience in the US tech industry, the duo have set up a multi-vendor marketplace to enable artists and artisans to sell directly to shoppers on their platform. The site is launching with around 30 brands with initial product categories including clothing, home décor, art, food, beauty, wellness, and books among others.
