Sustainable from the start
"From the outset, we have intended to create products with as little obsolescence as possible. Products you can enjoy and love for much longer (if not for life) so we can all play an active role in safeguarding our planet, and our lives, from the very real threat of climate change.
When I founded London & Avalon (formerly Josephine Home), sustainability was simply at the heart of our brand. My grandmother, Josephine, was a messenger of all good things ‘as they were meant to be’: using natural fibres and going back to traditional processes, honed over the centuries, which together carried a reassuring message of stability, longevity and safety. She taught us: “Take from nature sparingly and she will give back bountifully.”
Thank you for joining us on this journey, as we continually seek new ways to improve our processes, while reducing our impact on our planet’s resources."

To shape a sustainable future for luxury by redefining the business model and rebuilding consumer trust.
From the supply chain to the end product, we envision a future where the core principles of luxury and sustainability are fully and genuinely symbiotic.
Positive Luxury’s origin lies in the chance meeting of Sir David Attenborough and co-founder Diana Verde Nieto, his inspiring story of the Large Blue Butterfly – which died out in the British Isles in 1979 – and the dedication of the scientist who successfully reintroduced it by unravelling the intricate web of interdependencies necessary for its survival.
