Pensando muito além do revestimento como material de construção, a arquiteta e designer Carine Canavesi percebeu um mercado promissor ao posicionar o azulejo como peça de design. Nascia a Pavão Revestimentos, oferecendo padrões diferenciados, modelos exclusivos e personalizados. “A expertise que conquistei com o design gráfico, sempre lidando com formas, layouts e texturas, foram incorporados no azulejo, originando assim peças estilizadas de arte”, explica à empresária.
Além dos especificadores, a empresa está em mais de 100 pontos de revendas espalhadas por todo o País e atingindo todas as capitais.
Nossa fábrica é localizada em Pedreira, cidade do interior de São Paulo.

Pavão employs 20 workers, all women. They are usually the breadwinner of their families, and have 2 or 3 children.
We give fully support for these women, including benefits beyond the mandatory ones, such as: medical assistance paid for them in full and for their children, we provide transportation from and to work, life insurance and an extra help in buying food.
We started this year a scholarship project with a local private school to enroll our children’s employees. Today, they are all enrolled in public schools.
Pavão has adopted since the foundation, as policy, not to sell our tiles with minor defects. We donate these tiles to non profit organizations, public hospitals, day-cares, retirement homes, etc.
