Maker Profile

Avara Studio

Avara Studio is a Te Whanganui-a-tara / Wellington based design studio. Their practice exists to provide people with timeless objects that elicit joy in their daily life. Avara’s experience with chronic pain has shown her just how important small details of the material world can be when you’re feeling low - to help uplift, inspire and create curiosity. Maintaining presence and gratitude for every day is something she hopes her practice inspires for others. 

She is currently focussed on making jewellery and has some other non-wearable, ceramic objects in the works. All Avara Studio objects are crafted with longevity and sustainability in mind. Avara has a Masters in Industrial Design which grounds her studio mahi. 

Outside of Avara Studio, Avara brings her design research expertise to system-level, social impact health projects. The current projects she has on the go include reducing the prevalence of rheumatic fever in Aotearoa, improving maternity services and increasing wellbeing in schools for Māori and Pasifika tamariki, rangatahi and whānau.

Ethically Made

These goods are made by suppliers that pay fair wages, guarantee no child labour, and maintain a safe working environment.

Handmade

Handcrafted goods are one of a kind that have been created by skilled artisans often using techniques passed down through generations, rather than by automated, machine-based processes. Small irregularities are celebrated and are what make handcrafted goods unique.

Local

Natural

These goods have been crafted with materials that are derived from naturally occurring materials, plants or animals, with minimal processing. 

Organic

Goods that are made from organically grown materials and are free from harmful chemicals and pesticides.

Sustainable

Goods made from materials that can be replenished at the rate they are consumed, all with minimal environmental and social impact. Such as FSC wood, bamboo and wool. 

Transparent

These goods are produced by artisans or companies that are open, honest, and straightforward about their business operations. Transparency builds trust, from makers through to customers.
