Bem vindo and welcome to Alvesia.
We’re Ligia and Izzy, a mother and daughter team and creators of the Alvesia brand.
When we arrived in Australia from Brazil eight years ago, we immediately fell in love with a lifestyle that is so similar to Brazil, and yet intrinsically different.
On every visit home, we would discover ‘essentials’ we had to bring back to Australia; essentials that our Australian friends and family would fall in love and request from us in our next visit.
And so Alvesia was born.
Our mission is simple – to bring the best lingerie and swimwear range of our beloved Brazil to the world.
Our ethos is simple – to ensure the essentials we bring you are created by socially conscious brands that produce beautiful pieces, of the best quality, to the highest ethical standards.
The first exquisite, curated collection of underwear and swimwear has been hand-sewn and hand-finished by women and men who are fairly employed and paid, in safe family businesses. We will continue to support ethical Brazilian brands to strive and succeed in a challenging economy, and by working with these brands we can work towards consciously empowering local communities.
We know you’ll love our little space as much as we do, and we trust that our love of fashion, beauty and beach culture and our wish to unify two beautiful cultures shines brightly in everything we bring to you.
Ligia & Izzy
P.S If you have visited Brazil and discovered an essential you just had to have– let us know! We’re always expanding our range, so keep checking in for more special finds.
