Zavi is founded on a strong culture and authentic core values and we know how important it is for us to be as clear as possible about who made your clothes and how and what we are ultimately striving to achieve so you can make informed purchase decisions.
As an organisation in the fashion industry, we have a great responsibility. We want to use our position to lead the change in making fashion circular and sustainable.

We believe transparency is therefore an essential part of becoming more sustainable which is why we are completely open and honest about the way we work. Too much information? No such thing! We walk the walk with compassion, integrity and humility and we're proud of it (and we want you to be, too)
When you click on a Zavi product, you can find out which materials the product is made from and see full price transparency such as labour, material and overhead costs and how much profit we make from the item.  
Care and consideration is at the heart of everything we doWe think it's time to change fashion and how it's affecting the planet and our people and with your support as a consumer, we believe that we can contribute to creating a better world for future generations.

Core Values
Love & care for the planet and its resources
Thoughtfulness for our suppliers and workers
Quality & assurance for our customers
A clear conscience for our employees

Sustainable Measures
Everything we create is made with consideration for our people, our planet and its resources. From design to production, we are accountable for our actions and evaluate the impact each manufacturing stage has on our planet and our people.

Fabrics & Dyes
Our eco-friendly fabrics we use undergo vigorous testing to ensure that they pose no harm to humans or the environment. The materials are made from natural fibres and dyes that are eco-friendly and organically produced. Where completely necessary, we use a small amount of recycled polyester made from recycled plastic bottles for the purpose of waterproofing our outerwear.

The dyes we use are free from azo chemicals and carcinogens (known causes of cancer). We ensure all our dyed fabrics are below the 16 mg/kg FF mark (free formaldehyde) which is carcinogenic with much interaction with our skin. 
We work closely with vendors who are GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified, GRS (Global Recycled Standards) or Lenzing certified. If our supplier doesn’t provide us with the required certification, we test them ourselves against the Global Organic Textile Standard parameters to ensure our garments are truly harmless to you and our environment.
We test the accessories we use on our garments to ensure they meet the OKEO-TEX Standard 100 mark. OKEO-TEX Standard 100 mark, is a certification we use to ensure the chemicals in our garment accessories are either not present or within in the permissible limit so they are harmless to the planet, people and animals. 

Waste-free 
Since we are in the business of making goods, we have a responsibility to understand the scope of our environmental impact. To avoid leftover inventory and waste, of our products are made-to-order and ship within 2-3 days.

Packing 
Our packaging is made from recycled, recyclable & biodegradable material that's PVC-free. Our boxes are designed to be reused (they're super strong and sturdy!) and to be given a new lease of life by their owners. 

Ethical Practices
We fully commit to our values as a team because teamwork makes the dream work. Our employees are an integral part of who we are and what we are trying to achieve which is we operate and enforce fair wages and working hours for all of our workers. 

We produce our product in our own production units to ensure a positive and pleasant working environment for our staff so they can produce high-quality products made with genuine love and happiness.
