The name Alva is inspired by the noble one. At the House of Alva, we celebrate artisans who lovingly craft timeless scarves for you. Each piece is lovingly designed by our finest artisans of rare art forms. Each piece tells a story of celebration of a unique and rare artistry like block printing, hand made kantha embroidery, hand-weaving, and screen printing.
By collaborating with us, the artisans and their communities have found patronage with buyers who seek exquisite and luxurious handmade scarves.
Our scarves are not just must-have pieces in every fashionista's wardrobe, they are heirloom pieces for the next generation of fashion divas. Our high quality pieces will last a lifetime, so morph them into any type of scarf you want - a head scarf, a neck scarf or even a beach scarf. Be the trend - don't just follow it.
