Chava Studio was founded in Mexico City by Olivia Villanti in 2020 but the story of Chava starts well before that. Every hand-crafted piece is designed and developed in partnership with Gilly e Hijos, a 30-year old family- run studio.
Gilly e Hijos built their business on relationships with the best fabric mills in Europe: Scabal, a Belgian suiting specialist with headquarters on London’s Savile Row, ALUMO, a Switzerland-based cotton company with over a century of experience creating small batch, luxury cottons, and the list goes on.
Our community is welcomed to customize, personalize and of course participate in the design process if they wish. Please add your measurements, your monogram and any other design notes in the "notes" field at checkout. If you wish to amend anything after your order has been submitted please email me Olivia at Olivia@ChavaStudio.com. If we have not begun on your garment, we can likely accommodate!
Quality + Impact
Our studio is one of Mexico's premier suppliers of cottons and linens which means the fabrics we use are some of the most luxurious and exquisite in the world (facts are facts ;)). We mostly use their extra yardage in our creations—which is why only a limited amount can be made in each design. However, we will re-release many designs in new fabrics regularly.
Due to our made- and cut-to-order process we are able to avoid excess. We believe there is nothing more special or timeless than having something made just for you.
We don't design with trend or seasonality in mind, we hope each Chava Studio purchase you make is one you can keep for a very, very long time.
Maybe forever. We can dream.
