Commune at Sunway Velocity Mall finally officially launched last week. It is a space to give shoppers in Malaysia a whole new artistic retail experience. It also encourages the development of creativity and cultures, where artisans come together as a community by supporting each other.

Commune is located on the fifth floor of Sunway Velocity Mall, Cheras. The 15,000-square-foot area features 13 stores and 43 independent brands. It ranges from single-origin specialty coffee, beautifully designed hand-carved furniture, and mind-provoking books, to the latest in fashion, amazing eco-friendly beauty products and more.

In addition, shoppers can get personal with each brand. The people behind Commune encourages them to actively engage with the entrepreneurial artisans to learn the story behind every product they purchase.

To further strengthen the engagement, some brands in Commune also organize workshops for shoppers. This will elevate their shopping experience, by understanding certain skills or knowledge that are closely associated to the products or services they appreciate.

Furthermore, visitors can also participate in the diverse range of special events in the Events Foyer. It is located at the heart of this unique retail space.

Patrons can come together to enjoy a host of experiences tailored to provide enrichment for attendees. Some past events that were held here include the Chinese Opera showcase, independent film screenings, curated flea markets & specialty bazaars.

Senior General Manager of Sunway Velocity Mall, Mr. KS Wong said, “The concept behind Commune is to create a community of artisans and their patrons. We encourage the development of originality and cultures. Therefore, we are also determined to provide a platform for artisans to grow by supporting one another. We even match-make some brands with a smaller portfolio of products to collaborate with existing stores in order to diversify the offerings.”

“It is an incubator for aspiring lifestyle entrepreneurs and provides them an environment that is responsive to the style and trends of their craft, while being accessible to the public,” Wong added.

To discover the complete list of indulgences and offerings, visit Commune at Sunway Velocity Mall. It is open daily from 10AM to 10PM. The space is also available for private events and functions.
