Our name VivaTerra, which means “living earth”, is inspired by our dedication to operating in harmony with nature and our passion for blending global inspiration with modern, eco-conscious design.
VivaTerra is a retailer with a heart and a vision for both globally-inspired modern design and goods created with sustainability and integrity in mind. We value the expertise and talent of artisans around the world, and the craftsmanship exhibited in their work. We strive to share this contemporary, artisan-crafted aesthetic with our consumers through unique and earth-friendly goods.
We believe that ethical and sustainable conduct should be prioritized—not sacrificed—in an effort to achieve our goals. We are always concerned with the who, what, where and how surrounding our products. Our hope is that each piece created exemplifies social consciousness, global inspiration, quality workmanship, and one-of-a-kind style.
VivaTerra was born on the coast of California in 2004 from a vision to provide an eco-friendly décor option at a time when there were few available. Our founders held a passionate belief that there was no need to compromise natural resources or environmental health in pursuit of a beautiful home. Blending modern Californian design, natural & eco-friendly materials, and global inspiration, the brand grew and developed its signature style.
As our reputation expanded, it became a go-to for items such as recycled glass accents, block-printed textiles, and reclaimed wood furnishings. Then in 2014, during our 10th anniversary, VivaTerra was relocated to the East Coast in Virginia, giving the brand’s headquarters, customer care center, and distribution facility a centralized home for the first time. Reborn on the Eastern side of the country, we now encompass the aesthetic values of both coasts and all of the beauty in between.
Today, VivaTerra continues its mission to help you transform your home into a natural sanctuary filled with beautiful, uncompromising products. We source from and support artisan communities in more than 20 countries across the globe, as well as seek out fair-trade partners and sustainable methods of production. Our product selection continues to grow and evolve based on the wants and needs of our customers, while maintaining an assortment that makes us the source for contemporary, culturally inspired eco-style.
As a retailer who takes a conscious approach to running our business with a spirit of altruism and integrity, we seek to form partnerships and establish practices that help us to give back in the process of doing business. When our everyday operations become a method by which we are also doing good, we meet our goals as a business and as a supporter of both global and local communities.
