AOIFE ® is an award-winning circular fashion brand
AOIFE ® is an award-winning circular fashion brand that strongly focuses on sustainability using circular production methods. We aim to create a circular ecosystem. Our production and consumption model involves rescuing, regeneration, reusing, repairing, sharing and recycling existing materials for as long as possible. In this way, the life cycle of products is extended, reducing waste to a minimum. Our aims are to reach net-zero fashion and drive a positive impact on biodiversity.
The vision behind each AOIFE® piece represents a creative, circular and transparent journey.
Sustainability is the objective and our business model; it is about people first and our health, the health of our community. It’s about environmental conservation, economic development and social responsibility. True sustainability comes when the lifecycle of the supply chain is sustainable.
Our entire system, the rescue, redesign, development, the manufacturing process- all create a balanced ecosystem with positive social and environmental impact while creating beautiful products for you to enjoy.
Circular Sustainable Fashion
The brand’s signature piece is the Gallery Convertible Tote to Backpack— a classic unisex staple. Versatile and convertible, it features detachable straps, top-grain Italian leather and fabrics made with ECONYL® regenerated yarn, expressing the durability and functionality that opitomizes the brand.
The products are handcrafted using ECONYL® regenerated nylons, mixed with top-grain leathers, biodegradable cactus leathers, polished with Italian silver metal hardware, manufactured and milled in Italy, exclusively for the AOIFE ® brand. Overturning the idea that waste is part of a throw-away ritual, the brand transforms these materials into luxury with precious finishes and features.
AOIFE ® is a circular sustainable brand with a conscience; working to push the boundaries of a sustainable product without sacrificing style.
We prioritise the social responsibility to protect our natural world. The conscious luxury brand carefully source ethical, eco-friendly fabrics and hardware options. The brand's design decisions deliberately use circular, reclaimed, recycled and regenerated materials- helping to clean our oceans, reduce carbon dioxide, and protect wildlife while utilising the resources we already have in this natural world.
Innovation in Materials
Constantly evolving and adapting to new sustainability models, the AOIFE® certified manufacturing process improves with technology. We collaborate with award-winning green partner companies in Ireland and Italy, all of which uphold the highest principles for reclaimed, sustainable fabrics with excellent ethics and work practices.
Our accessories are handcrafted with ECONYL® regenerated yarn from nylon waste and the finest Italian top-grain leather.
We craft with 100% sustainable woollen traditional Donegal Tweeds from Mount Errigal in Donegal. There is no split in the made-up of our fibres we use to give you 100% quality materials.
Craftmanship and Heritage
Our suppliers Magee 1866, are a fifth-generation Irish family business with over 150 years of experience designing, weaving and tailoring luxurious fabrics and clothing in Donegal.
We work with local artisans in Ireland best known for their recognised quality that supports and preserve traditional heritage skills. Together we are supporting traditional jobs and our communities.
We also work with Italian fabrics with a company based in Prato, a city known worldwide for producing and trading fine-quality textiles. A small amount of fabric inevitably remains unused at the end of each production season for fashion houses and mills. This occurs due to both overproduction and unpredictable design changes by marketing departments. Our supplier selects and purchases these fabrics and puts them back on the market, giving them a new chance to be used. Like us, their mission is to be attentive to sustainability and circularity, offering a vast range of fabrics with a low environmental impact made from valuable recyclable and sustainable fibres.
