Our Story - Vivari

Our Story

Vivari was founded with a passion for exceptionally-crafted products and an unrelenting commitment to challenge conventions in the retail industry.  For generations, luxury goods have been made with leather: a material made from the skin of animals and used by brands for its durability and symbol of quality.

We started Vivari to offer a compelling alternative.

We believed that high-quality accessories could be created using premium fabrics that replicate the key qualities of leather but are also animal-friendly and sustainable.

In 2015, we embarked on a yearlong effort to scour the world for the best materials and artisans out there.  We convinced those artisans, who for generations worked exclusively with leather, to experiment with our materials.  The result is a collection of accessories designed with a modern spirit and edge. Each Vivari piece is handcrafted in Florence, Italy by highly-skilled craftsmen who have produced accessories for high-end brands like Giorgio Armani, Versace, Dolce & Gabbana, Balmain and Ermenegildo Zegna.

As committed as we are to creating exceptional products, we are equally committed to driving a positive social impact.  Vivari was founded on a principle that business can be a force for good.  Our commitment to you is that we partner with the most innovative and impact-driven organizations around the world and take you on a journey on the positive impact you will have. 

Vivari is just getting started, and we’re excited to have you along for the ride!
