About  Us

Before we became the Avaivilla Group, we originally operated as Salt Studio. Salt Studio was established in 2012, as a side project to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander female creatives to develop and grow their branding in the visual arts space. Salt Studio promised the artist that we would not take a fee from their commissions, as such the consultancy arm of the studio was added to not only support the business to grow but to combine the founder's love of creative storytelling and cultural education. During this time, our aim was to grow the business to a point where it could maintain its growth and support full time employment.  

 

In 2020 we officially launched Salt Studio Consultancy as a sole trader business with the intention of migrating it into a company 12 to 18 months later. In late 2021, we started the migration into a company as Avaivilla Group.

As a small First Nations company we want to maintain our core business of cultural education while opening opportunities for First Nations and Pasifica communities to collaborate with us in developing unique cultural experiences, through our events and online stores Salt Tribes and Vai Nation, both subsidiaries of the Avaivilla Group.

Salt Tribes is a clothing, homewares, and accessories specialty online store. Products feature First Nations and Pasifica art; each new line is themed to carry a message and to tell a story. Vai Nations is created to offer a collaborative platform to bring creatives together to develop and design product concepts that feature art and story telling from the Pacific Rim Nations. This platform is purely giftware, accessories, and stationery. Go to Salt Tribes to see what is on offer in our online stores.
