In shops and fashion markets, customers sometimes ask, why Vietto
products are so expensive. The short answer is that Finnish work costs. But do
products really cost a lot and where to compare prices?
The starting point for Vietto is that all products are manufactured in Finland. Also fabrics used in clothes are predominantly knit in Finland. Although the Finnish origin increases costs, it is the best way to guarantee ethical and responsible production at the highest possible level. Local manufacture also helps to save materials and make the production more ecological. Delivery quantities and storages are small, so the products are made only due to demand. Some products, such as the hand printed Urban Art deco dress, are made only when ordered by a customer. In addition, co-operation with local sewers makes it easier to use the fabrics most efficiently, for example by using leftover from the production of large garments in the manufacture of small garments.
Because products are not stored in large quantities, there is no need to have big seasonal sales. This is taken into account in pricing, and there are very limited opportunities to reduce the prices. Some people wonder why Vietto does not have sale offers. In reality, prices are already bargained so that as many customers as possible could acquire a Vietto dress or cardigan at any time. However, Vietto organises occasional campaigns, where products can be found at small 10–20 % discount. Furthermore, Vietto arranges stock sales twice a year selling last pieces and samples at very reasonable prices.
If you compare Vietto products to other Finnish labels, you can notice that Vietto’s prices are in fact more affordable than many others. This is explained by the lack of discount margin in the prices. You can always buy a Vietto product without needing to worry that the same garment would cost only half the price next week. This can reduce the temptation to do impulse shopping just because of low prices. Because of the small margins in the cost structure, Vietto has not been able to offer its products in chain stores. Vietto clothes and accessories are available at Vietto web shop and selected retailers.

Shopping clothes online can
sometimes be tricky, you never know if they fit or not. At Vietto web shop, we
try to give the necessary measurements of garments, which should make it easier
to find the right size. It’s a good idea to compare the measurements with a similar
type of clothing you already have. However, different kinds of fabrics may fit
differently, even though the measurements are the same. For example different
elasticity, drape and also thickness may change the fit dramatically.
Would you prefer trying on the garments beforehand to make sure they fit? In Helsinki, it’s possible as many Vietto garments are sewn there at dressmaker’s shop called Ompelimo M.Suvinen. It’s also possible to make custom fit garments if needed. So how it works? You may do your shopping normally at Vietto web shop and then send an e-mail telling that you would like to use our fitting service. It’s important to notice that Ompelimo M.Suvinen is not Vietto’s showroom, so clothing is not permanently there. That’s why you need to tell us what garments you’d like to try, what sizes and when. We will take care that the exact pieces are available when you show up. The dressmaker’s shop is located in Malminkartano area in Helsinki. It’s easy to reach for example by train P and I. Travel time is 15 minutes from Helsinki city center. The shop is open at weekdays from 10 to 18 o’clock. Please don’t hesitate to contact and visit us, if you’re travelling in Helsinki or live nearby!
Vietto stock sales will take place on Saturday 9th of November at Ompelimo M. Suvinen in Malminkartano, Helsinki. Samples, colour series last pieces and mildly second quality garments will be sold at bargain prices. There will be also pieces of new collection, classics and special products available with discounts. We have also visiting jewellery brand Ninavia from Kuopio showcasing delicately graphic jewellery made of Finnish birch plywood. A special feature in Ninavia’s jewellery is hand drawn lively line.
Come to explore Finnish design at suburb, by train you’ll arrive in 15 minutes from Helsinki city center! Ompelimo M. Suvinen is located at Kehruutie 1 LH 4, Helsinki. Malminkartano is very easy to reach by Ring Rail line (P or I train depending which direction approached). Ompelimo M. Suvinen lies at the northern end of Malminkartano railway station tunnel.
No worries if you’re not able to come around, Vietto stock sales will be at web shop, too! It’s going to last the whole weekend at Vietto-shop!
New Vietto website and shop has been launched, only a few weeks before the brand’s 12th anniversary! Yay! Now Vietto web shop is totally integrated with the web pages as earlier shop used to be one link click away. So now it’s super easy to pop in the online shop and check the season’s collections! And the most important thing is that Vietto website is now bilingual, the whole content is available both in Finnish and in English! Hurray!
Why to shop at Vietto web shop? One good reason is the broad selection. Vietto web shop can offer a whole lot of larger selection of garments compared to other retailers. There are always some extra pieces that are not available anywhere else, such as hand knitted accessories for example. Another significant benefit is free shipping in Finland. All purchases in Finland are shipped without cost via Finnish post. Happy shopping at the newly launched website and shop!
Every now and then we hear that Vietto delivery times are way too long. Shipping time has been defined for 10 days at our webstores, though it almost never take so long. But what is the reason for slowness?
Vietto does not have big stock of products, they are made to demand little by little. This is really ecologic as additional garments are not made. This is the main reason why Vietto does not have big sales like -50 to -70% but that’s a another story! Because stock is small, by times we get orders for products that do not exist and we make them afterwards. For example Urban Art deco dresses are rarely ready made as there are numerous colour options for them. They’re quite laborious to make too because of the printing process. The whole way of doing is possible because most of the Vietto’s products are made in Helsinki, at small dressmaker’s studio Ompelimo M.Suvinen in Malminkartano.
Logistic chain is as short as it can be, so the shipping normally delays only by one day even if we make the garment after order. Another reason for long delivery time is the fact that both Vietto and Ompelimo M.Suvinen are one woman businesses. If one or another (or worst case scenario both!) are for example sick, it makes delays for making and shipping. Luckily this happens rarely! If shipping time or anything else is bothering you, please contact Vietto at info(at)vietto.fi, we will solve it out!
