In this episode of the Gamechangers podcast, I’m talking to Brit Kleinman, founder and designer behind AVO, the incredible home decor brand creating hand dyed leather pieces for interiors. AVO creates bold and iconic rugs, pillows and wall tiles: each piece is hand dyed in their Brooklyn studio, often made to order & customized for the individual project. Brit talks about how her extensive work history taught her to design into manufacturing, how to start and grow a business and exposed her to the incredible qualities and history that leather has to offer. She talks about the importance of harnessing the confidence to create your own path, the power of innovating and experimenting and how she prefers to learn all the rules...right before she breaks them.
