Unfolding the story of an Alivia garment
Beautiful prints begin with art—and great art begins with human stories. From one masterpiece to another, Alivia turns artwork into design, bringing the beautiful minds of creators with disabilities to every print and every hem—showcasing the unique gifts and abilities that break assumed boundaries.
It All Begins with Expression
Every Alivia piece begins with artwork created by an individual with a developmental disability while participating in art therapy. This season we are showcasing three talented young adults with autism who participate in art therapy at the Center for All Abilities, an NYC nonprofit that supports local youth and young adults with developmental disabilities.
Collaborative in Principle
Our designers work to meticulously transform these works into bold prints and embroideries while preserving the integrity of their unparalleled conception. We aim to create a collection of prints that reflect the original artist’s artistic vision, personality, and point of view.
Our Sustainable Commitment
All of our mills and supplier partners are Standard 100 by Oeko-Tex®, meaning all raw materials undergo testing to ensure that no harmful chemicals are used. All of our printed fabric is produced using digital printing methods, which reduces fabric and water waste in contrast to traditional printing methods. Our paper goods are made from FSC™ recycled paper.
Deep Production Values
We work very closely with our domestic and international suppliers and manufacturers to ensure that the people making our clothes are paid fairly, treated with respect, and have safe working environments. The majority of our products are produced in the NYC garment district, allowing us to visit with the talented people who physically create our garments on a daily basis!
Redefining a Lifetime Guarantee
With every purchase, Alivia gives 10% of the revenue directly to the artists’ local nonprofit where the artwork originated, giving unheard creative voices a platform to speak for generations of creators to come.
Impact You Can See
Stitched into every garment is a unique scannable tag that allows you to see, experience and share the complete human story of the artist behind the prints on your clothes - and the direct impact you made.
