Mavi is a brand of denim and jeans-wear founded in 1991, based in Istanbul, Turkey. The company manufactures jeans for both women and men, targeting a younger age group. The global operation is headquartered in Turkey, with subsidiaries in the USA, Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Russia and Australia.[1]

Mavi has flagship stores in New York City, Vancouver, Montreal, Istanbul, Berlin, Frankfurt, Düsseldorf, Hamburg and Moscow.[1]

Celebrities who wear this brand of jeans include Kate Winslet and Chelsea Clinton.[2] In 2012, Adriana Lima signed a contract with Mavi for a marketing campaign, recording a series of commercials.[3] The campaign was so successful, that the sales increased 50%.[4]

The company's name derives from the fact that 'Mavi' is a Turkish word for blue. Its major factory is in Çerkezköy, Tekirdağ Province.
