The company

Avia has been manufacturing classic and fancy yarns for hand knitting and weaving since 1975.

Avia has always valued producing high-quality and technologically advanced products by combining creativity, research, and innovation. Our products are all mid to high-level quality due to the extensive time and attention spent on material selection, print effects, and bulky looks.

Avia builds relationships with its clients based on trust and collaboration by being flexible and providing tailored services that satisfy specific customer needs and requests.


Avia’s eco-sustainable hand knitting and weaving yarn lines comply with strict environmental, ethical, and social criteria that is applied throughout the entire supply chain.


Our story

Avia’s story is a tale of encounters. Piero Palladino and Antonio Viana’s meeting led to the company's establishment in 1975. A year later,  fashion illustrator Alberto Lattuada joined the duo, which kicked off a collaboration that lasted until the 1990s.
Every year, Lattuada's genius and unmistakable style made its way into both the Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer (FW & SS) collections. The collections were created with Avia yarns and presented at the Pitti Filati fashion trade show in Florence, Italy. 
With his very personal stylistic trait, the designer created hundreds of sketches for Avia, which were then transformed into garments by applying the most suitable type of yarn.
