MADE IN PORTUGAL
All our products are made in the charming and verdant Braga region of Portugal, across three small factories run by people who are as passionate about revolutionising the fashion industry as we are. We share common values of innovation, sustainability in materials and processes, and caring for the people working in the industry.
As Portugal must adhere to high EU standards, we already have assurance that our factories maintain excellent working conditions and pay fair wages. However, we also carry out annual factory audits to check that everything is in order and suggest ways for the factories to continually improve.
Portugal’s short distance from the UK means that we can minimise our carbon footprint by transporting all goods by road.
We want our products to become your wardrobe favourites for years to come. Another good reason for making Portugal our country of choice for manufacturing is the country’s long-standing tradition of garment production.
Portugal is renowned for its workmanship and attention to detail, which marries perfectly with our desire to deliver the highest quality and seriously stylish products to you.
Most of the fabrics we use are made locally in Portugal or sourced within Europe. You can read more about our fabrics here.
LABELLING AND PACKAGING
As a fashion brand wholeheartedly committed to leading the way in sustainability, our pledge to use environmentally friendly materials goes further than our fabrics.
Our combined brand and size label is made from soft woven recycled polyester, and the tag attached to the garment is made from recycled paper and secured with an organic cotton string. The care label inside the garment is made of woven satin in conventional polyester – we are still on the lookout for a supplier who can provide recycled polyester labels.
VILDNIS products are shipped to our UK warehouse, wrapped in beautiful recycled tissue paper with our bespoke print and finished with a recycled paper sticker. Equally, the enclosed returns form is printed on recycled paper while the mailing bag is 100% recycled polythene.
Feel good about your purchase knowing every little detail has been carefully considered to minimise our environmental imprint (and therefore yours).
