“There is no human nature, only nature. Life operates through symbiosis. To take care of the natural world is to take care of ourselves, our families and our communities. As we wake up to this awareness of ourselves as nature, we recognize that when we heal our planet, we heal ourselves – and when we heal ourselves, we heal the Earth.” Welcome to the Neu Nomads plant-based sustainable clothing brand.
Looking for clothing that is centred around ethics-first, with a commitment to sustainability and traceability? Look no further! This company is dedicated and mindful of these same values that extend from the fabrics to the factories; to packaging; and ultimately to the products. Everything is considered!
Neu Nomads’ signature plant-based fabrics are sourced from sustainable and renewable natural resources, and are naturally lightweight, breathable, and washable.
The two women who started this company, took the best of what they have learned during their 30+ years in the fashion industry, and applied it to a forward-thinking business model. It aligns with their ideal of creating a more sustainable and equitable world!
Together, they created a collection for women like us: global citizens, modern minimalists, and conscious consumers.
Their brand includes beautiful wardrobe staples at attainable price points sourced from a clean supply chain.
Their Satin TENCEL™ signature fabric is known for its luxurious softness and breathability. This natural textile is derived from wood pulp, and is responsibly manufactured using energy and water-conserving methods. Their fibers are sourced exclusively from Lenzing Austria.
The Eco-Jersey fabric that they use is sustainably sourced from 80% organic cotton and 20% SeaCell™. This knitwear capsule is manufactured in the EU, and holds GOTS+OEKO certifications. SeaCell™ is a luxurious silky fiber made from seaweed and eucalyptus fibers, and is produced using an innovative production method with no chemicals released as waste.
Their factory is an official member of the Greenpeace DETOX campaign:
joining only a few vertically integrated manufacturing companies in the world, that have fulfilled the rigorous conditions set by Greenpeace.
Their Linen is one of the lowest-impact textiles on Earth, requiring only rainwater for harvesting. It is incredibly soft, durable, and is responsibly sourced and manufactured within the EU.
They also have a luxurious cotton/cashmere blended textile sourced from Kathmandu, Nepal. Their manufacturing process uses SGS lab certified, and Mongolian origin yarns. In addition, their in-house fabric testing is accomplished via optical fibre analyzer software, ensuring the perfect diameter and length for each design. The dyes are sourced in Switzerland, and are standardized and eco-friendly.
Their sustainable clothing factory is one of the country’s most modern, and invests in the children of marginalized and underprivileged employees, by sponsoring their education at private schools to ensure quality education.
They work with a state of the art dye house located in Rajasthan, India that adheres to the highest environmental and social standards.
The factory is powered by solar energy, and excess energy is directed back to the local community.
Water used for dying is captured in reservoirs from the monsoon rains, which is then purified and processed using non-toxic and AZO free dyes. Nearly 90% of the water used during the dyeing process is recycled in a common effluent treatment plant. Sponsorship of the industrial park has been provided by grants in collaboration with the UN and European Commission through the SWITCH-Asia initiative.
The fashion industry is notorious for using materials that are harmful to the environment.
But instead of virgin plastic poly bags, Neu Nomad use 100% biodegradable bags to wrap their garments for shipping. All paper packaging is made from recycled cotton fabrics that are sourced from local garment factories, and repurposed into 100% recycled paper.
They are committed to the transparency and traceability of their production process from start to finish.
Not only are they intimately familiar with the production standards and processes behind their clothing, they’ve also forged close connections with the families and communities they work in. Their founders regularly inspect every juncture of the supply chain to ensure that their sustainability standards are upheld, and their workers are treated fairly.
From their founders to their factory workers to their customers, the mission at Neu Nomads is to empower their growing global collective of women.
Their female designers celebrate women’s bodies, and take an inclusive approach to fit and design.
Neu Nomads think that beautiful sustainable clothing should be affordable and accessible. By working directly with their suppliers, and keeping overhead costs low, they’re able to bring you products of exceptional quality without the traditional markups.
Plus, they’re minimalists at heart. They believe in doing more with less, so they’ve designed every piece in their collection to be endlessly wearable, washable, and versatile.
