Athena Akhavan founded her nature-friendly brand, Athenvan in 2010 and has since been designing ornaments and wearable sculptures by using recycled paper. Athena’s spontaneous works of art are completely handmade and produced in a limited number; therefore most pieces are unique and one of a kind. In her production, Athena utilizes materials and adhesives that are natural and her designs are inspired by Iranian rituals, myths and ornaments, using Iranian colors and motifs .
As Athena describes them, her pieces are a gift to the earth to make it happy, and a charm for you to stay happy.
