All Voglia products are designed in Finland. In 2021, 80% of our production located in Estonia, where we had two factories of our own. 20% was made elsewhere, as part of our collection requires special know-how and machinery, which our Estonian mills can’t provide. Also 79% of the materials we used in 2021 came from Europe.
TOGETHER WE SHAPE THE WORLD
VOGLIA & SUSTAINABILITY
Sustainability consists of ecology and ethicality. Environmental load of clothing production and recyclability of garments are part of the ecological issues. Animals, humans and all the matters connected to their rights belong to the ethical side.
Ethical and ecological values are the basis of Voglia. We’ve always focused on quality to provide a long lifespan for our collection - perennial progress is our ambition. For us, responsibility work is a long-term process and investment, in which we want to constantly challenge ourselves.
We are definitely not perfect here and now. We still have a lot to do and we are committed to improve.
Voglia products are designed and patterned in Finland. Our design philosophy is to develop and manufacture products to last both visually and functionally. We use durable materials and our end products feature timeless charm. We focus on fit and design our garments respecting and celebrating the diversity of bodies.
Our clothes are versatile, ageless and elegant - at their best they last for generations.
All our materials are carefully selected. One of the most significant goals of our product development and production is to use durable and easy-to-maintain materials. We aim to create garments, which are simple to take care.
We prefer natural and recycled materials and we’re continually working on increasing their percentage of Voglia’s range.
In 2021, 80% percent of our production came from our own Estonian factories, which located in Viljandi and Võru. These two production sites were combined in October - now all our private production happens in Võru.
Our garments are produced in cells of 2–3 people. One cell aka a group of professionals sews each piece of clothing together and ready from scratch. In these small teams quality control is smooth and efficient; ensembles are easy to master. We visit Estonia several times a year to monitor quality and working conditions.
Part of our products require special know-how and machinery, which our Estonian mills can’t serve and provide. In 201, 20% of our selection came from other countries: 7% from Lithuania, 5% from Turkey, 3% from China, 2% from Finland, 1% from India, 1% from Italy and 1% from Estonia.
Most of our production happens nearby Finland in Estonia, which simplifies our processes and helps in minimizing our environmental footprint in transportation as well.
We are constantly developing our strategies and function models to execute our logistics in a more and more ecological way. Our online orders are already shipped 100% carbon neutrally.
DURABILITY AND CARE
All our precisely chosen fabrics go through wash tests. Besides every end product of ours is shaken down; we test both their functionality, fit and comfort. Care instructions are composed according to this analysis.
We also share information on the qualities of our materials in various channels and educate our personnel working in customer service. Our passion is to help our clients to choose the perfect garments for their needs and to guide them in taking care of different materials.
WASTAGE AND RECYCLING
We strive to minimize the amount of wastage already when designing our products. We also use our own surplus fabrics a lot and monitor our sales in real-time to produce clothing according to its run. Every suitable scrap generated in fabric cutting is collected to be transformed into new products and PR items.
Besides we aim to repair every reclamation item and usually succeed in it. Rarely a garment is so broken or ruined, that it can’t be fixed. Our webshop returns are as well spruced up and set for sale again.
HELP US TO DEVELOP
We are eager to openly discuss sustainability with our customers. Our aim is to inform and influence people to adjust their habits as consumers. We are not yet perfect, but we want to develop and make increasingly more sustainable choices.
Each piece of clothing on our webshop is also specifically described, so detailed information is well available for you to investigate. We hope you also follow us on social media for even more facts and news about our products and brand.
