We have skipped a few steps in the commonly known fashion industry supply chain by making all of our own products locally.
By giving women a job in an industry that is difficult to get a foothold in as a refugee in Denmark, we give them language training and the opportunity to financially support their families. We are very proud to work with these talented women and learn something new from each other every day.
At Vieille, we go to great lengths to source materials that have as little impact on the environment as possible. When we use newly produced materials, we use linen from European cultivation and cotton produced under fair circumstances in Asia.
In each collection we have a wide selection of pieces made from vintage fabrics. Do you know the wonderful feeling of a soft cotton garment? Instead of using the massive amount of water used to soften new cotton, we make our pieces from vintage cotton that has been softened over the years.
Beside using vintage materials, a lot of styes are made in deadstock fabric.
Buttons and other embellishments are purchased from vintage markets in Europe.
" Sustainability is much more than organic fibers. We vouch for locally grown materials and above all for decent and ethical working conditions for the artisans" - Vieille
Our studio is located in the northern part of Denmark. It is a creative workspace where we spend most of our time making beautiful handmade clothing for women and children. We are very grateful to be able to work with so many talented artisans who came to Denmark as refugees. Every day we all learn new techniques, social and language skills.
In addition to our vintage selection and our own Vieille models, we carry a carefully selected range of brands. What they all have in common is that each piece is made locally and with love and care for our planet. Some have been chosen because they are handmade, others because they are organic, and still others because they are personal favorites whose quality can be passed down through generations.
