In 2003, sisters Yanina and Norah began work on the supply chain for Aravore, finding growers of sustainable organic cotton and creating a workshop and training centre in their native Paraguay. Yanina, who was based in London, designed and eventually launched the brand in October 2005, with Norah remaining in Paraguay to oversee production in the workshop.
“Our first capsule collection was launched with 10 monochrome pieces made from unbleached organic cotton. Without colour variation, we had to make sure each item had something to offer in terms of texture or style. Over the years we have added new colours, materials and designs to build upon the traditional hand crochet skills generally available in Paraguay, where our Atelier is based. We now experiment with limited edition prints and fabrics, and mix hand crochet detailing with knitting to lend a delicate feel to the pieces”.
Yanina Aubrey, Founder of Aravore
Aravore means ‘Piece of the Sky’ in Guarani, one of the official languages spoken in Paraguay, where our workshop is based.
