We love detail and colour and whimsy and quality. We relish the unexpected and the smile of discovery. From its inception to create the traditional tailored tweed suits and separates that Avoca was once famous for, our Design Studio has grown wings and flown. It's a hotbed of inspiration, chock-a-block and chaotic, a bustling hive of ideas and what ifs.

It's the home of our Avoca Anthology women's wear range. And it's not only clothing. There are Avoca ceramics & candles, perfumes & bags and more designed here for Avoca Nest: the only limits on our designers' ideas is that they're not to be like anyone else's.

Avoca combs the world to find or commission beautiful, interesting fabrics & trims, and we manufacture in Europe, with much of our knitwear, for example, made for us by Italian partners who work closely with our Design Studio, season by season.

Moreover, it's a wonderful, inspiring place to be creative, part of the 16 acres of woodland and gardens in the countryside just south of Dublin where we've the Avoca HQ, a garden centre, store and two cafés.
