Copy of About us
Designer and founder Anastasiia Sutula grew up close to the mountains and the forest in the Czech Republic. Ever since she was a child, nature exerted a profound sense of reverence and belonging. It is the place where she feels most at home.
A few years ago she moved to Lisbon where she fell in love with the light and the ocean. This is where she founded her brand and launched her first swimwear and activewear lines. From the very beginning, Vinnia was designed with sustainability and ethics in mind.
2 years ago she embarked on an ambitious journey, keen on making conscious swimwear accessible to women of all shapes and sizes worldwide. Her figure-flattering contours fit like a glove. Additionally, she set out to find the softest possible sustainable fabric, careful not to be compromising on the level of support.
As a passionate ocean steward, Anastasiia was delighted to come across ECONYL®, a 100% regenerated and recyclable nylon fibre. A large percentage of the inputs of production for ECONYL® come from plastic ocean waste, while the rest come from textile factories and landfills.
Anastasiia's goal is to champion the sustainable swimwear and activewear space, through nurturing collaborations with circularity pioneers and climate change stewards across the board. Her vision is to bring together conscious design, environmentally friendly manufacturing, product repairs and take-back programs, complemented by leveraging data and tech to minimise overstock and waste. When it comes to packaging, the brand partnered with Better Packaging, to ensure a high-quality, 100% biodegradable and compostable packaging solution!
The designer is committed to build an active community of change-makers, sharing and learning from each other best practices on how to live more mindfully and pave the way to a green, just, and resilient future.
