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 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 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
When you click on a Zavi product, you can find out which
materials the product is made from and take a closer look at our price transparency
such as labour, material and overhead costs and how much profit we make from our clothes.
Care and consideration is at the heart of everything we do. We 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
Love & care for the planet and its resources
Thoughtfulness for our suppliers and workers

A clear conscience for our employees
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
The eco-friendly fabrics we use undergo rigorous 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. Where 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 of formaldehyde) which is carcinogenic when it comes in repeated contact 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 OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 mark. OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 mark, is a certification we use to ensure the chemicals in our garment accessories are either not present or within the permissible limit so they are harmless to the people and our environment.
