Palava – Vintage design and unique prints.

We love Palava – Palava for us stands for vintage style with a nice touch of British whimsy. The clothing is based on classically inspired cuts from the 1940s , 1950s & 1960s design, while the print is completely unique to Palava, and is designed by the owner himself; Bryony.

Palava - family owned vintage design

Palava started as a small family business in Yorkshire, based on designer Bryony's wonderful imaginative patterns and prints.
Today, the company is based in London, but of course still has the familiar and intimate feel that is the starting point for Palava. Along with the wonderful cut patterns, all of which are inspired by vintage designs, Palava's hallmarks are the beautifully distinctive and imaginative prints. Bryony finds inspiration for the patterns through, for example, vintage novelty prints from the 50s, and she is inspired by the circus, music and dance, but also by flora and fauna in the form of beautiful animal and leaf prints.

Palava and sustainability

Palava attaches great importance to sustainability, and has taken a number of precautions to produce as environmentally friendly as possible while at the same time having a strong focus on employee welfare. All dresses, skirts and pantsuits are sewn in a small factory on the outskirts of London, and all their knitwear is made in Turkey. The organic cotton that Palava uses in their beautiful vintage knitwear is both grown and spun here, so it makes sense that it is the experts here who also produce the beautiful sweaters and cardigans of the highest quality. Last but not least, Palava packs their clothes in biodegradable bags, rather than plastic; a small step towards a plastic-free future.
In addition, Palava only produces small batches at a time, this is of course to avoid waste and overproduction, and in this way you can be sure that the clothes you buy from Palava are not only of high quality but also unique.

Vintage clothes, retro clothes or repro clothes?

As most of our customers already know, our clothes are not "true vintage". This means that it is not secondhand clothing made in the middle of the last century, but reproduced (repro) clothing which is inspired, with great love for the details, by vintage clothing, prints and cut patterns. However, we have found that the vast majority of our customers do not know the term "repro", but use both retro and vintage to describe the clothes we sell, despite the fact that they are newly produced clothes. That's why we do exactly the same here at Mondo Kaos. All our clothes are always newly produced, not second-hand, and are primarily inspired by the wonderful, feminine fashion from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.
