A large part of VIMMA's models are one-size-fits-all. This significantly improves the recycling possibilities of the garment. The materials are high quality and long lasting. A novelty in our use is ‘eternity clothing’, i.e. woven, jacquard, patterned fabrics. 
Some of the materials we use are recycled, such as padding made from plastic bottles, recycled polyester threads used in jacquard fabrics, and recycled polyester and cotton blends in socks. 
To extend the life cycle of products, we produce clothes that stand the test of time from a design perspective. Most of our products work equally well for everyday and festive use. The materials and patterns are designed to last. A large team of Finnish pattern designers, whose experience and expertise help us create timeless and interesting new products as well as classics, accompanies us in creating these.



VIMMA's materials mainly consist of organic cotton (20.2%), mulesing-free mohair wool (7.3%), merino wool (12.5%), and bamboo (2.5%). We also use viscose (9.7%) in dress production and have replaced our own cotton jersey and college with woven jacquard pattern fabrics (16.1%). 
In addition to quality, we pay attention to the production process and durability according to the intended use. When considering the production process, it is important to evaluate the documents related to the materials of the whole process and their acquisition, as well as the origin of the materials, the energy and water consumption and the quality certificates used by the factory. 
We are constantly working to find better material alternatives in terms of use and the ecology of production. We have replaced all cotton with organic cotton in 2020 and reduced cotton production by about 70% of total production volumes compared to 2019. College materials come from Finland (Orneule Oy). We use GOTS-certified eco-cotton from Orneule. Orneule knits have been awarded the Oeko-Tex Standard 100, class II. The production of the colleges is entirely in Finland, including the dyeing and finishing of knitwear. Our goal for the future is for all cotton fabrics to be made from recycled cotton. 
The yarn used in the new jacquard fabrics is cotton yarn and recycled polyester. In addition, our collections use ‘deadstock’ surplus materials from the Finnish Textile Wholesaler, which can use man-made fibers or various mixed yarns. The wadding for quilted jackets comes from recycled plastic bottles.
Our goal is that bamboo is always included in the collections. As ‘classic products’, as the environmental and use values of the material perfectly match the ecological values of VIMMA. In addition, we continuously use the Finnish Textile Wholesale Amanda fabric, which includes pulp-based Sorona fiber. This product has been in use by us since 2018 and has been found to be a very functional knitted fiber. 
In the future, we aim to introduce new Lyocel fibers and find functional and high-quality alternatives to viscose dresses. 
The merino wool in our knitwear is mulesing-free and Responsible Wold standard certified. Merino wool is known for its good use properties and the material withstands many uses with proper maintenance and care measures. 

We strive to utilize recycled materials in production. The wadding of our quilted jackets are made of recycled polyester, which means its made of PET plastic bottles. The cotton we use in our socks is a blend of recycled cotton and polyester. From fabric cutting waste, we make loose collars and scrunchies for use in clothing, for example. All one color knitwear is always produced from factories' deadstock yarns. 

We test all the materials ourselves by doing wash and wear tests on them, so that we can find out e.g. shrinkage of materials, colourfastness for washing, pilling resistance and tear strengths. We want to use only high-quality materials in production, so that the life cycle of the products is also as long as possible in terms of materials. We are also very interested in new ecological materials, but we have not yet found solutions for our own production. We are looking for new partners who would be able to process and produce new pulp or bio-based fiber fabrics for our needs.

With these examples, we want to illustrate the value chain that makes up the Final Price of a product.



We provide customers with care and washing instructions for knitwear and jackets in the store. We repair any seams in the knitwear in Knitwear, ie we offer a guarantee that the seams will last for two years in normal use. If necessary, we can also get new ones to replace the dropped buttons and snaps, and we will direct the customer to the seamstress if he or she wants pattern changes or other repairs to the garment.

Emissions related to the maintenance and washing of textiles are also under investigation. Natural fibers survive very little washing and it is not recommended to wash woolen coats at home at all. Maintenance is best done by ventilating and brushing. More about product care




We want to minimize material loss primarily through mechanical formula layout, which is an efficient and effective formula layout. If this is not possible, we produce various accessories from edge fabrics, for example schrunchies or loose collars. 



Producing products locally in Tuusula, Tampere, and the Baltic countries ensures product safety due to legislation. The fabrics come from within Europe, so EU regulations and laws also oblige their manufacturing process and factory working conditions.
