Bav Tailor is a sustainable luxury clothing brand designed for the ethically aware generation. It’s a wellness project that remains a collective fusion of the finest certified natural or recycled materials. The focus is pure, geometrical silhouettes and effortless volume inspired by design, architecture and Eastern philosophies that represent true hallmarks of authentic 100% Made in Italy through a ‘360° sustainability manifesto.’ The brand mantra is ‘respect your body + your sphere.’
Born in London, Indian by origin, a nomad in spirit, Bav Tailor is the Founder and Conscious Creative of her brand launched in 2015, which upholds the tradition of her ancestors and Grandfathers, great sartorialists, sourcing materials from suppliers that encapsulate excellence in innovation, craftsmanship and respectful standards.
Bav Tailor, also a member of Common Objective and Green Fashion Week, has been awarded with the Conscious Designer award by the Arab Fashion Council and nominated Vogue Talent finalist of Who Is On Next 2019? scouting project promoted by Altaroma and Vogue Italia with whom she showcased during the ‘Vogue Talents 10 Anniversary’ exhibition.
Bav Tailor’s DNA is built on her precious research of sustainable materials from 100% recycled fish skin from post-waste materials. That production process also makes use of renewable hydro and geothermal energy, a technical bio-based material created from caster beans, to an innovative new material created from natural Elephant Ear leaves that derive from renewable origins. The leaves collected in sustainable areas are a vegan and eco-friendly material with characteristics similar to leather which allow the skin to breath, hence consolidating the brand’s commitment to protecting the planet.
