Avela is a socially conscious and ethically made brand owned by two travel-loving best friends. Marine biologists turned entrepreneurs, Ali and Gadea are adventurous, creative and passionate about this earth. They are based in Hawaii and have always been drawn to different cultures. After traveling around the globe together and immersing themselves in the local traditions and experiences, they were inspired to start this business.

Avela stemmed from their love of the artisanal traditions they have witnessed first hand all over the world. They aspire to bring global products to women just like them while fairly supporting artists and ensuring all aspects of their business are sustainable.
