Avani is a Swiss brand that sees simplicity and elegance as essential to designing clothes that do not compromise on style nor on ecological footprint. Femininity is celebrated with timeless pieces created to be worn and loved for years. Linen, hemp and tencel are the fabrics of choice for their capsule collections and all meet GOTS or the OEKO tex certification standard. Complete transparency is par for the course and nothing is produced, including raw materials, more than 1900km away from their design studio in Vevey. Three talented women craft each piece in Beaurepaire near Lyon. Keeping production as close to home is key to minimizing the footprint of all they produce. No zippers mean beautiful wooden buttons are used for fastenings which has the knock-on effect of their clothes being totally recyclable. Avani means ‘earth’ in Sanskrit and is a reflection of their commitment to look after the earth in all they do.
