niko+ava is an online boutique offering a beautiful, thoughtful curation of clothing, shoes and accessories for boys and girls aged 0 to 6. The collection of our DC-based shop is truly unique, featuring European brands such as Paade Mode, Macarons, Noro, and Pom d'Api, plus the likes of Japanese East End Highlanders and Arch&Line. Each item is chosen with an eye for quality, longevity, functionality, ethical production, and style. niko+ava is not just for clothing and it’s not just for kids. We have a gorgeous selection for Mama and Dada, décor equally at home in the living room as the nursery, imaginative gift ideas and range of creative toys.
niko+ava was founded out of a need for something missing, somewhere to find unique and timeless everyday items for the modern family. We travel the world to find stylish alternatives to the ubiquitous mass-produced, throwaway children’s apparel. Everything we curate is truly loved by us and worn by our little ones.
niko+ava is a reflection of the chic nomadic life that I, Luisa, my husband, Boris, and our two beautiful children, Niko and Alexa, live. Along our travels we get to meet incredibly talented independent artists who create and have the desire for things that are well crafted, simple and timeless. niko+ava is a family-run project that enables us to share our lifestyle with the world.
