Ethics & Sustainability

At Avila our beliefs lay heavily in creating a brand that is ethical and sustainably responsible. 

 

SUSTAINABILITY

We use the highest quality eco-friendly and low environmental impact fabrics wherever possible. We design classic, timeless pieces at a high quality ensuring garments last and can be worn season after season. 

We try to reuse our off cuts of fabric for bags, scrunchies or sampling to minimise waste.

ETHICS

Majority of our clothing is made Fairtrade in India with some limited edition pieces made by our own team here in Melbourne. (see description of each product to see where it has been made.)

We work closely with our factory in India to ensure quality standards, social and environmental standards are met. This factory have GOTS, Fairtrade, OEKO-TEX (Standard 100), Social accountability (SA-8000) and Upmade accreditations and a CSR (corporate social responsibility) award. Their factory is run using solar power.

In 2019 we started to develop our own fabrics. To do this we started to work with a very skilled and ethical factory in China. We have met with them personally a number of times and they are ethically accredited with BSIC and WRAP certifications. We are very excited to be working with this team on custom developed fabrics for our leggings and t-shirts.

We work closely with all our makers and suppliers to ensure the values of Avila are met in all aspects of the supply chain.

 

FABRICS

The fabrics we use can vary from season to season. Our most frequently used fabrics are organic cotton, tencel, modal and linen. We recently developed some new custom fabrics made from modal and organic cotton. We only use the highest quality fabrics that feel amazing against the skin.
