AVAVAV uses luxury fabrics from brands like Fendi, Burberry, and Jacquemus. Their production chains often cross paths in Italy at some point, and that’s where much leftover fabric gets thrown away. How does AVAVAV source its fabric? Well, they check local warehouses and even trash containers when the opportunity arises.
Although it is not possible to make all items with only deadstock materials, they claim to use about 20% of all used fabric to be their own stock. All transportation done to make the garments are being covered by electric vehicles and collections are being kept very small to rule out any further waste. Some sweatshirts even have the words “We only made 32 of this” embroidered on them.
AVAVAV’s limited second collection is now available on their website.
