Our Journey Towards a Greener Tomorrow

At VIMOC, nestled in the heart of artistic expression and creativity, we believe in harmonizing our passion for art with a deep commitment to sustainability. Our journey is about creating beautiful and enduring pieces of art—but doing so in a way that respects and nurtures our planet.

Our Core Sustainability Values

Local Sourcing, Global Impact: We pride ourselves on fostering local communities by sourcing materials from local artisans and SMEs. By choosing to work closely with Portuguese companies renowned for their textile expertise, we not only contribute to the local economy but significantly reduce the environmental impact of logistics and travel. Our dedication extends to selecting sustainable materials like high-quality cotton and locally sourced Portuguese cork, ensuring that every product from VIMOC carries a piece of our heritage and a commitment to the Earth. 

Quality Over Quantity: We believe in the timeless value of quality. By choosing the finest materials—be it the best cotton paper for our fine prints or the sustainable fabrics for our textiles—we ensure our creations are not just art but heirlooms that stand the test of time.

Craftsmanship and Tradition: Embracing traditional techniques, we maintain low stocks and produce prints directly in our shop. This approach allows us to guarantee the utmost quality and control, moving us closer to a zero-waste philosophy by revaluing discarded products and, when necessary, recycling them.

Our Sustainability Practices

Zero Plastic Vision: Our commitment to sustainability is steadfast, with a clear goal to eliminate plastic from our operations. We are actively investing in alternatives that align with our zero-plastic ambition, reinforcing our dedication to preserving the environment.

Eco-friendly Production: Every VIMOC product is a testament to sustainable manufacturing practices. From leveraging traditional craftsmanship to ensuring direct control over logistics and production, we minimize our carbon footprint while enhancing the quality and sustainability of our products.

The Future of Sustainability at VIMOC

As we look to the future, our goals are ambitious but clear. We aim to become a zero-plastic company, continuously reducing our carbon footprint by managing lower stocks, optimizing logistics, and sourcing materials that embody our sustainability values. Our vision is to not just create art but to inspire a movement towards more sustainable living.
