AWAN Sustainability

We are building AWAN into a circular fashion brand based on intentional design principles, innovative fabrics and a direct-to-consumer business model.

A less wasteful fashion business

AWAN is part of shaping a new fashion industry that is smart and intentional instead of wasteful and limiting. As a community and data driven fashion brand, we aim to only produce clothes that are in demand, and to leverage technology to minimize waste.


Fabrics to feel good about

We carefully select fabrics in superior and long-lasting qualities, with a minimal production footprint.¬†Our¬†collection is produced in Portugal, mostly in 100% Tencel ‚ĄĘ - a biodegradable and nano optimized performance fabric from FSC certified wood. This is a fabric that move and breathe with you, like your second skin.¬†¬†All of our pieces are made to last for a long time with proper care, with moisture wicking, antibacterial and crease resistant properties. Which means less need for washing and ironing. Better on your skin. Better for the planet.


A permanent collection.

Living sustainably means owning clothes that you will wear again, and again. This is why we’re building a seasonless collection based on demand, with elevated essentials you really want to, and can, wear again and again. All day and all night.
