HØST & VÅR is a Norwegian brand, created in 2015, by mother and daughter team
ELSA FREDRIKKE NEDREBØ & GUNN AUGLEND NEDREBØ
HØST & VÅR meaning ‘Spring and Autumn’ in Norwegian refers to this pairing of mother and daughter. Their loving bond is built into every garment.
The ethos of HØST & VÅR
is to create garments which convey an individual and unique sensibility, and to do so in a way which makes a positive impact. Items are all cross-seasonal, cross-generational, conscious, cruelty-free and as far as possi- ble sustainable.
We know that sustainablity is a big claim and it is almost impos- sible to be 100% sustainable but we are doing our best to be as close as possible.We carefully consider the best choices and we continually aspire to go fur- ther in the right direction.
We are a small team but we make exponential efforts to ensure that we focus on the entire value chain starting with the source material and ending with the communication of our values and societal responsibility.
We are transparent about our sourcing and production cycle which we explain in depth in our manifesto pages.
HØST & VÅR creates garments which are feminine, bold and colourful with unique fabric patterns. We want to create garments that speak of personality, confidence, a spirited sense of happiness and a creative connection with the world.
