Vimma is a way of living
-A whole new lifestyle


Vimma

VIMMA company is not only the products but also unforgettable stories, innovative people and a lot of experience.

VIMMA is a dream of a lifetime. This dream was waiting for the right moment, people and pieces to find each other. The right people together create the spirit of VIMMA. This opportunity was something we could not resist.

We wouldn’t need to manufacture any more products to this world. The most important thing is the message we build. We create products in order to help reduce the need of belongings.

Ecologically friendly, long-lasting and multifunctional

Festivities and regular days go hand in hand. Our clothes are designed to be used in different occasions. The same dress can be worn to school as well as to Grandpa’s Birthdays. The designs live through your child’s childhood and can be shared among siblings, too. Items are designed for comfort and sustainability.

VIMMA has a passion to transform the old into a fresh new design. Our designs awaken playfulness in children and invites adults to join the play.

We design with beauty and a little spark in our eyes, sometimes even upside down, still never forgetting functionality. We strive for happiness and shine. Our aim is to play with materials, prints and shapes. We are led by intuition, not trends.

VIMMA cares about children and believes in happiness and positive attitude towards life. – Children are our first priority, always.

Our clothes are produced in Finland and also across the Gulf of Finland in Estonia. We mainly use ecological materials, which come from Finland and the Baltic countries. Collections may be richened by the use of recycled materials.

We visit our carefully selected Baltic factories every month to ensure the quality of our clothes and to help workers get the same vision as we have. We also keep an eye on working conditions to make sure everything serves the values and spirit of VIMMA.

Our work is based on honesty and transparency. We have been able to employ dozens of people. We also support different kinds of humanitarian organizations. VIMMA donates prototypes, photoshoot and test items and excess collection items to different charity organizations.

VIMMA works for others, caring with love.

Store manager & photography

Sini Gustafsson is a self-taught photographer who is still learning to become a more passionate photographer. Sini is a mom of four kids. In addition to family, the best things in life are friends and nature. Sini enjoys small ordinary things she loves to capture on camera.

“Along with VIMMA’s clothes, I also love the lifestyle, way of life and the warm feeling inside. It just feels right”, Sini says. The rich and multifaceted mixture of different patterns are the prime inspiration for Sini. “I used to take photos after photos. I was lost and mistakes were made. I was shooting almost every day when I finally found my own way to take photos. I started to analyze the surroundings from a different perspective. This was the way of finding my own way of living, to be me,” she says.

Taking photograps has become a big part of Sini’s life. This is also the way to draw out her true feelings and emotions inside. Sini thinks that if you just look closely, there is beauty everywhere. Sini feels relaxed with her camera. Without stopping a moment with your camera from running away, there aren’t any photographs”, Sini says. Feedback is also very important for a photographer. For Sini success is being able to tell a story through a photo with a deeper meaning. “The creativity and innocence of children have an influence on me each day”, she says happily.
