Welcome!  AVELA is a lifestyle brand of handmade goods from around the globe, blending traditional craftsmanship with modern style.  AVELA was born out of a shared love for global arts and traditional crafts between two friends.  As world travelers, co-owners Gadea and Ali have been inspired by the colors and designs of other cultures.  Their travels inspired them to establish AVELA and bring global handcrafted goods back to the states.  Our products are authentic, handmade, and imported from Europe, Africa and India.  The word AVELA means 'to sail' in the Spanish language and encompasses our love of travel, the sea, and the beauty of handmade crafts.
