Sustainable luxury, produced with zero waste. Made for the fashion conscious with a conscience. Creating quality products that won't ruin the earth, environment or people. No labels - be yourself! Dress without guilt.
ZERO WASTE Any fabric waste gets recycled and reused. We are zero waste from the very start to end product. Designing is done with zero waste in mind; pattern cutting and fabric cutting is done to eliminate the amount of waste.
END OF ROLLS Buying end of roll fabrics is saving on fabric waste, which would otherwise be thrown away and become landfill. The garments made with these fabrics are limited edition and that makes them extra special.
UNISEX We don't believe in labels. Our garments are gender neutral.
IDENTITY Establish who you are! Be who you want to be! Let fashion define you! There are no rules for expression!
ETHICAL Most garments are handmade in the UK, unless stated otherwise. We don't agree with slave labour or children making your clothing. We only use ethical factories, businesses and freelancers.
ORGANIC FABRICS Organic fabrics have no chemicals used to produce them. Safer for the workers, and safer for the consumers. These fabrics last longer and are biodegradable so will leave no waste. We state all fabric used in the description of our products.
HAND SKILLS Where we can we produce or outsource handmade products using traditional skills, we don't want craftsmanship to be a dying art form. Let's keep these beautiful skills alive!
SLOW FASHION We are against fast fashion. Our garments are designed to be timeless, most of them are lined to increase durability. They are season-less made to be worn any time of year, produced with quality, and made to last. Versatility is key when designing and producing our products; one garment can be worn in a variety of ways enabling a capsule collection.
MADE TO ORDER We value our products therefore most of our garments are made to order.
VEGAN We are vegan at ZARAMIA AVA. We try have a small carbon footprint. No animals are injured or have died to make you look good! We believe in cruelty free.
RECYCLE Wherever we can we recycle what we use all fabric-off cuts, samples, pattern paper, card etc; as well as the waste.
We at ZARAMIA AVA are always learning and improving, we want to build awareness of sustainability! Working together to make a better world!
