Our roots date back over a century into the rich, fertile soil of the picturesque cotton fields in Peru. Compelled by the dream of one day creating his own world-renown clothing company, Alberto, our founder, began harvesting the finest Pima cotton to create high-end articles for some of the industry’s best-known clothing brands. With decades of knowledge, experience, and creativity in our corner, it’s time to put his dream into action, step into the spotlight, and bring to life our own vision.
VÄV Basics is the realization of decades of hard work, doing things the right way, and never compromising our values. Sustainably harvested by hand, and created in an eco-friendly factory, we craft the highest-quality basics, to showcase what luxury style should be. Only the most exclusive 100% Peruvian Pima cotton is used as the cavanas for our clothing designers to style chic comfort.
Rather than following in-the-moment trends, we’ve always had an eye focused on our development, in order to stay true to the touchstones of the company. Putting our dedication to both our employees and the environment on the same pedestal as our clothing quality, we live our mission. From treating the water we’ve used in our dyeing process so that it can safely irrigate crops, to investing in our employees with fair wages, no corner is ever cut.
Buzzwords and the latest catch phrases grab consumers’ attention, but fall short of living up to the hype. Our process is our culture and the truth behind our motivation. Harvested and woven in Peru, our international style is focused on delivering premier basics that are both classically beautiful and compliment the current moment of fashion.
From behind the veil of other companies’ names and onto the mainstage as a leading producer of premium basics, our goal is to create holistically-crafted shirts and outerwear that tells our story with every stitch. We do it better because we understand the importance of uncompromising quality in each step in evolving the premium basic.
