VIDA VIDA

Matt and Andreya Townsend are the creators of Vida Vida, which specialises in beautifully handmade leather goods. They met on the idyllic beaches of Fiji in 1999, where they found they shared the same passion for fun times, crazy adventures and a general love of life.

Having worked in the fashion industry previously, they soon realised on their return to London that a combination of their own designs and the expert craftsmanship that they had seen on their travels, would surely result in something special. Thankfully, they were right and they are going from strength to strength with a keen focus on classic styles that are handmade to be the highest quality. Long lasting products is of key importance to them. They have also teamed up with a wonderful charity called United World Schools, and guarantee the provision of a school bag to a Cambodian Child in need with every sale they make over £25.

For Matt and Andreya honesty and fairness is what their business is based on - from their expert craftsmen and women to their discerning customers, the idea is that happy people make happy products, which results in happy customers.
