ANVART is a creative collective based out of Long Beach, California. Our mission is to create a modern aesthetic in apparel using sustainable materials to help fight against textile waste.
According to the Center for EcoTechnology, the EPA reported that in 1980 the US “generated roughly 5 billion pounds of textile waste.” In 2014, that amount “spiked to 32.44 billion pounds.” 95% of post-consumer textile waste, which includes clothing, footwear, fashion accessories, towels, bedding, and drapery have the potential to be reused or recycled.  However, this waste is recycled at a rate of only 15%.
