About

Innovative Independent Ecological Fashion

I’ve been making things with my hands basically all my life.
Somehow I still ended up studying geography instead of applied arts. After working five years in environmental management, my creative side finally made its debut. I founded Vietto. And, since fashion had always been an essential part of me along with nature and environmental awareness, it was more than natural to choose ecological materials for the starting point of my creative work.

As ecological materials are very important to me, I still try to reach the ecological aspect from many different angles: I do my best to design clothing that stands the test of time, but isn’t boring; I make convertible garments to keep their users interested for years; I use eco power for the machines I use, and I try to use locally manufactured fabrics whenever possible.

My creations often seem to be a bit extraordinary by their shape, but they are still very wearable. Although I love unconventional forms, I always want to keep my designs usable. Pop culture, urban phenomena, and nature all fascinate me, which might sound contradictory. However, I find unusual combinations very intriguing, and I love to combine very traditional crafting techniques with modern pieces of clothing.

As a designer, I don’t want to create new collections every six months; I don’t find that sustainable. My design process is more like evolutionary. It means that my creations constantly evolve, but most of them stay in my collection as ‘classics’ for more than one season. When design is timeless and personal, the wardrobe doesn’t need to be renewed for each season.
