VIDA is a global platform that brings together creatives and manufacturers from around the world to create original apparel and accessories - on-demand, at mass-scale. Our global community of creatives includes photographers, fine artists, calligraphers, sculptors, 3D vector artists, potters, writers, interior designers, fashion designers, even hair stylists.
A curator of creative voices, VIDA showcases Art x Fashion from New York to LA, Mumbai to Madrid, and Tokyo to Tel Aviv. Our designers include world-renowned artists from 150+ countries around the world and our manufacturers range from textile mills to cut & sew units across India, Turkey, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and more. We've launched over 2.5M unique products on our platform and have grown our business 10x+ year over year. Additionally, we've proudly partnered with the Museum of Modern Art, Cher, Steve Madden, and Iris Apfel, amongst others to launch exclusive collaborations.
Each of our products is custom-made, on-demand, and has a unique story - from the inspiration behind its design to the personal stories of our artists. For every product made, VIDA offers education and empowerment programs to our factory workers so they can build a better future for themselves and their families.
In support of our global literacy, empowerment, and education goals, we want to encourage everyone to make an impact through their creativity and artwork.

VIDA is a marketplace designed to help new and professional artists establish or further build their brands at a global level, while focusing on their art rather than the logistics necessary to sell and fulfill products to customers. We source the best materials and factories we can work with, we ensure those factories treat their workers well, and we manage every part of the process, from making it easy to create a storefront and upload your work to packaging, shipping and customer support. We handle all aspects of operating a business - from product development to delivery and more - so you can focus on being an amazing artist. Artists earn up to 20% in commission for each work sold and, and they have the ability to set their own pricing as well.
