Djerf Avenue has always been something I’ve wanted to build. It’s been a dream since I was a little girl.
Djerf Avenue was created in 2019. The name came to us when we were having breakfast at All Time in Los Feliz, LA. We want you to feel like you’re walking down an avenue that breathes Djerf Avenue when you enter our world.
Djerf Avenue is a Swedish, non-seasonal, ready-to-wear brand. It’s created for you, by us. Born out of our love for vintage and the perfect basics Djerf Avenue is made to embody the confident, chic, and laid-back person on the go. Each piece is created with love, from design to production. We want to deliver pieces that feel timeless and that will last.
Our pieces are ethically produced and manufactured in Portugal, Italy & Sweden. We have designed each piece to feel timeless and to work together. We want you to wear Djerf Avenue often. We want to be the basics in your wardrobe that you can always go to. We believe in timeless designs that will work for years to come.
Portugal is known for quality workmanship, respecting working conditions, premium fabrics research, and improving knowledge and technology.
Producing in Portugal was an easy choice for us and one we are very happy we made.
In the town Djerf Avenue was born, we produced our Remade bag in a small Atelier run by three young women.
Our Italian factory have strong co-operation with the main Italian yarn suppliers with whom they work closely together and this enables them always to stay updated regarding the newest materials, colors, and fashion trends.
Continuous research has contributed to a successful market introduction of their authentic knit concept, together with their long lasting experience.
All of our factories have been carefully chosen in order to guarantee high-quality standards. And all of our factories follow European laws and policies regarding Labour relations practices.
For us, the pursuit of sustainability is a constantly ongoing process. As creators of new products, we acknowledge that achieving absolute sustainability is challenging due to the environmental impacts associated with manufacturing processes. However, our mission is to be as kind as possible to our planet. We constantly strive to minimize our impact through every aspect of our work - from the spark of a design idea, to sampling, production and the freight of our finished pieces, into the remaking of existing garments.
Our goal is to create garments with timeless designs that will never go out of style, made from high-quality fabrics that require minimal maintenance.
For us, sustainability is a journey - a continuous effort rather than a destination.
We only use natural, organic, regenerated, or recycled fibers in all of our garments.
We only use natural corozo buttons instead of plastic buttons.
We only use organic cotton labels instead of polyester labels.
We attach necessary hang tags to our garments only to provide information about the products, not for branding purposes.
Our security tag and every piece of packaging are made with 100% recycled materials.
We do not include spare buttons in our clothes but keep a stock in our office if a customer should need an extra one.
We have opened a warehouse in the US to be able to ship all US orders to customers by truck.
When possible, we produce made-to-order garments to minimize waste.
We launched the Djerf Avenue Re-Sell platform.
We collect all of our returned items with flaws for either re-make projects or for re-sell availability. We never throw away or destroy faulty items.
We always offer customers to take any flawed items to a tailor or dry cleaner at our cost instead of returning them to us, to extend the lifespan of all garments.
We organize monthly pick-up trash days at the offices.
We have bought 8000m2 forest for preservation via Naturarvet.
You will never find retouched models on our website or social media. Our photos come straight from the camera roll, we don’t believe in editing bodies, pimples, or clothing. This is us. Just the way we are. And we are proud.
We can’t wait for you to wear, create memories, laugh, and live in Djerf Avenue.
