Perfect your boho-chic wardrobe with a few statement pieces from Urban Tribe. With six locations in Shanghai, this unique shop is hardly a ‘backdoor boutique’, but definitely one to mention on this list.
Their collections are inspired by tribal people and Chinese minority groups and their traditional clothes. Urban Tribe offers a collection of eco-friendly, handmade pieces made of pure cotton, linen and hemp. In addition to one-of-a-kind pieces, they also offer up a range of jewellery, ceramics and home accents.
Urban Tribe also supports the training of tribal women to learn their traditional clothes-making techniques and to encourage them to wear these traditional clothing pieces in daily life.
