We take sustainability as serious as our quality.

Sustainable Luxury.


One decision at a time, we make a difference.

At Vidda Royalle, we actively look for ways to contribute to a greener world, having as our guide the United Nations sustianbale development goals for 2030.


Goal 1 + 8

More than 700 million people, or 10% of the world's population, still live in extreme poverty and live on less than $1.90 a day. Since 2018, 55% of the world's population still have no access to social prot

How we contribute.

We buy GOTS-certified organic cotton from Asia, which we process in Portugal. GOTS-certified producers must meet both environmental and social requirements. They must ensure that employment is freely chosen, working conditions are safe, no child labour is carried out and there are no cases of discrimination or excessive working hours. In addition, we pay fair wages to everyone in our supply chain, as well as offer privileges and health insurance to all of our workers.

We value our workers.

We are highly committed to social responsibility, strictly respecting all principles contained in the United Nations Global Compact, Code of Ethical Trade Initiative and the Conventions of the International Labor Organisation.


Goal 7

More efficient use of energy is crucial for creating sustainable and inclusive communities and for resilience to environmental problems such as climate change. Energy is the main cause of climate change and accounts for around 60% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

How we contribute.

In our factory, we use energy-efficient light bulbs everywhere across all installations. We implement a process of efficient management of our resources (water, energy, gas emissions, chemicals, etc), raw materials and waste, aiming at an efficient circular economy.

We invest in efficiency.

Recently, we strongly invested in photovoltaic solar panels, allowing us to be more than 30% self-sufficient, using nothing more but the sun. It's a proud step we took towards green energy. We've also been replacing our technology with modern looms that are much more efficient and friendly to the environment, consuming considerably less energy than older equipment.


Goal 9

The job multiplication effect on industrialization has a positive impact on society. Each job in manufacturing creates 2.2 jobs in other sectors. Small and medium-sized enterprises engaged in industrial processing and manufacturing are most critical to the early stages of industrialization and are usually the largest job creators. They account for over 90% of business worldwide and between 50% and 60% of employment.

How we contribute.

Backed by our small family business in Northern Portugal, Vidda Royalle international activity, local cooperation between partners and inside the industry, and support of local artisans, craftsmen, artists and designers, will help withstand the price pressure in the textile industry and contribute to reasonable investments towards efficiency and innovation of the sector.

We promote sustainable industrialization.

By building a resilient business, we are promoting a sustainable and healthy economy across the sector and contributing to growth and innovation in Portugal. We are open and collaborative, with intra and inter-sectorial partmerhsips along our value chain to make it not only stronger, but better.


Goal 13 + 16

2.6 billion people are directly dependent on agriculture, but 52% of agricultural land is moderately or severely affected by soil degradation. The loss of arable sand is estimated at 30 to 35 times the historical rate. Drought and desertification cause the loss of 12 millions of hectares of soil annually.

How we contribute.

We source organically farmed cotton (GOTS), where no pesticides, no fertilizer, and less water is used in agriculture. Organic cotton is fed 80% of rainwater, which reduces the pressure on local water sources. We measure our ecological impact and footprint and partner with Portuguese reforestation initiatives to offset our carbon emissions, giving our clients the choice of becoming carbon-neutral with their collections.

We source ethically.

We are deeply committed to using sustainable raw materials throughout our business. From offering our clients the highest grade cotton to our organizational culture of equity, transparency and respect, each decision we make help us sleep a bit better at night.
