We are the founders and designers of the brand, Ági Szécsényi and Vanessza Vágó. We graduated together as
knitwear designers in Budapest. In the university we worked on different projects together, so not only our friendship, but the ways we completed each other during the working process made us believe that we can create something great together.
Our passion for knitwear, sustainable and ethically made products brought OAT AVA to life.
We are committed to the idea of slow fashion which we interpret in an essential collection of clothing that
will always be available, and expanded slowly piece by piece, consisting of simple, timeless knits.
The idea of our brand lays on our own personal inspiration taken from our daily life. As working from a home office and studio we spend most of our time in our own space and this environment influences in all its segments our spirit and our lives. We felt a growing need to create a closet of clothes that reflects on the time spent home, developed to be suited for all the aspects and activities that are included in homelife. We found it especially important that these garments express comfort, serenity, calmness and safety just as much as the interior. For this niche we created the “ottalvás collection”.
MATERIALS AND PRODUCTION
We use high quality natural fabric yarns from fair trade companies, which integrate sustainable innovation and
social responsibility directly onto its products, and ensure that no harmful chemicals are used during the production process.
We aim to produce less waste and reuse all knitted materials we can.
All our clothes are made with the participation of experienced knitwear professionals in a small family-run
Hungarian knitting manufacture.
