One of the greatest challenges of the slow fashion world can be finding items that align with your personal style. Over the last few years, ethical fashion has grown immensely, taking more stylish steps towards merging sustainable textiles and ethical details with the mainstream fashion industry. As more research and discoveries are made, the more consumers know about what goes on behind the scenes. This is where our excitement stems from, as here at AGAATI, we’re all about blending our beliefs in sustainable production with feminine, contemporary style.

Our values in ethical consumption and production come first. We believe in fairly made products, empowering and paying artisans the wages they deserve for their incredible hand woven work. Second, we are chic, sophisticated and fun. AGAATI's bold designs combine embroidery, color and textile surface manipulation to showcase just how daring ethical fashion can be. Fashion plays a major role in how you express your individuality. Whether you’re headed to a meeting, brunch or cocktail hour, we present the opportunity to blend your personal style and ethical responsibility with every stitch and bow, while complimenting the bold, femme and unique you.

the brave and a sweet heart.
We believe in a zero waste philosophy, utilizing textiles scraps and dead stock (left over fabric, overstock or pre-consumer waste) to recreate possibilities. As environmental stewards, always considering the impact on our beautiful planet throughout the design and production process, every detail must be consciously implemented, from 3D embroidery using waste materials to dying garments with azo-free dyes. Our go-to textiles include natural fibres for the luxe and affordable closet, viscose for delicate and romantic looks, and hand woven wool for warmth and versatility. Choosing these delicate materials to empower the weaving communities we work with, allows us to play on their strengths and design based on an economic need. By helping you step into your personal style with our ethical approach, together we can showcase how influential fashion can be as an educational tool for sustainable development.
Feel good about how your style today will affect the industry tomorrow.
BE BOLD. DO BOLD.
