Savara means glowing from within. We support this natural glow by creating sustainable lingerie. By doing so, we're creating a bra revolution to make the planet smile. Savara Intimates was founded in 2019 and the first collection launched in March 2020. We stand for:
We work together with young, talented women, mostly in the first stages of their (new) career. We work with 20+ female freelancers, influencers, interns and professionals yearly. In doing so, we hope to inspire others to lift each other up and believe in new talents. We bring this great energy into our designs.
Sustainability is at the heart of our business, so we created a complete page with all the details. You can read more about our sustainability practices on our Sustainability page.
'THE DESIGNS ARE NOT FINISHED UNTIL WE SEE AN INSTANT SMILE ON THE FACES OF THE WOMEN WEARING IT'
Our designs are created from scratch and we strive for the best fit and looks. Therefore, for every piece that is created, we have the women wearing it in mind. The unique size adjustability makes it possible to wear items over and over again, without having to buy a new bra. The adjustable straps are the ideal combination between looks and flexibility.
In 2021 we proudly presented our perfectly normal beauty campaign. It's time to change the perfect beauty ideal for once and for all. Together with six beautiful, inspiring women (who are customers as well!), we visualized our idea of true beauty. Our goal: to normalize natural beauty together, while being truly confident with who we are. We hope customers can identify with the ladies and have a better understanding of how the lingerie will fit.
Behind the brand
'Wake up, shower, walk to my underwear drawer and the challenge starts. Which bra will fit my clothes? Which one has no stabbing wires yet? Which one will fit me at this time of the month and is also charming so I don't have to cover it up? What kind of material is this, which makes me all sweaty after biking to the office? Why do my sisters still have the same issues?'
I'm Eva van Schijndel and these are the questions that popped into my mind every morning. I had just graduated from University and I tried hard to stay focused on my job. However, I asked myself every day if I was doing the right thing. I have the strong belief that it's possible to create anything you want and I felt that lingerie struggles could (and should) be different. I daydreamed about starting a company with a positive impact on the world, in which I could create something beautiful. One night I drew some ideas and started sewing. I was blown away by the energy this gave me and that is where Savara Intimates started.
Following my intuition, having a clean conscience is vital to me. Fair wages, good working conditions and sustainable materials are minimal requirements for me. Together with great freelance women, we run Savara Intimates.
