Paper Goods from the Neighbourhood
Ava & Yves may sound exotic, but the young label is based in Steinhagen, Germany, where all products are assembled and shipped. Ava & Yves is a real success story. The brand was founded in 2013 by Geraldine Koppmann in her native Bielefeld. It was a small begining, with only sweet postcards illustrated by Geraldine, but these postcards were so well received by her customers that she visualized further ideas and possibilities. That was the starting point for Ava & Yves, since then the young company has been going steadily uphill and now offers a range of products from stationary to party supplies and porcelain, most of which are made from recycled and sustainable materials.
The Ava & Yves founder, Geraldine, studied graphic design in Bielefeld before she worked at a large media company for a few years as a graphic designer . Of course, her biggest sources of inspiration behind her designs are provided by her own 2 children. Geraldine illustrates all of the products herself and it’s important to her that between the various materials and products , the design will culminate in a harmonious overall picture .
A Label With Standards
Ava & Yves believes in sustainable development of their products by using recycled, natural, and certified organic materials when possible. For the Ava & Yves team, sustainable development means taking equal account of environmental, economic and social issues. In other words, "we must leave our children with an intact ecological, social and economic fabric," says the founder.
Environmentally Friendly Paper Products
A large part of the Ava & Yves collection consists of stationery. From greeting cards to memory books and posters, all these magical and wonderfully designed paper goods will bring a smile to your face. Best of all, most of Ava & Yves' paper products are printed on recycled, environmentally friendly paper. Ava & Yves are also self-sufficient, not only are their products in-house designed, but they also assemble and shipped directly from Steinhagen. In this way, you can enjoy beautiful products and at the same time make a contribution to the environment. This is how stationery is fun!
In addition to sustainability, Ava & Yves also focuses on social responsibility. The production team is therefore in contact with various (disabled) workshops. There, people with disabilities or psychological and social impairments are given the opportunity to train or find work. Long-term unemployed people can also take part in vocational qualification in the workshops. Ava & Yves are happy about this cooperation and the many helping hands.
Everybody remembers the My School Friends books from their own school days, don't they?
