We want the Portuguese to consume sustainable clothing. We know that supply is still scarce -that will change now! - Were going to open a store with plenty of options in September to make your wardrobe more eco-friendly!
The Textile Industry is the second most polluting, right after oil, shocking isn't it? It is also the industry that, even though it is the most consumed, generates the least concern about its environmental and social impact.
While in our country the Textile Industry represents only 2% of the total companies it employing 5% of the total population, we can understand the impact that this Industry has, especially when the vast majority of the fashion consumed in Portugal originates in countries where workers' rights are not respected - This is why it is so important that we consume less but better!
At Näz we dream of creating garments that positively impact the lives of the people who make and wear them:
- All our production is made in Portugal;
- We use waste from the Textile Industry;
- We develop recycled fabrics and knits;
- We are totally transparent about the production and creation of our pieces.
We are the first and largest sustainable clothing brand in Portugal, and we would like to thank all of you who have been by our side and helped us grow so much in the last 2 years, it has been a hell of an adventure by your side.
Now we have a new challenge, we want the Portuguese to consume more sustainable clothing! We know that the 2nd hand is not always an option, but we also know that the choice of sustainable fashion products in Portugal is scarce.
That will change now! Lisbon will become even more sustainable!
We will open a Flagship store in LxFactory as early as September, but the news is even better, in this store, besides our brand, we want to have other branded products that we admire and inspire us to always do better, always more focused on fashion and accessories but also with a selection of products to help you make your everyday life more sustainable.
The start of a store is always difficult, especially when everything happened so quickly, the investment will be huge on our side, we will have incredible brands that have no representation in Portugal and during this month we will share with you all brands that we will represent!
We also promise to do our best to make it a store with the least possible impact - all boxes will be reused, all packaging will be environmentally friendly! It will be a store with a fantastic selection where finally the Portuguese can come to buy clothes and lifestyle products truly ecological and fair.
About the author
We are the first Portuguese sustainable fashion brand, inspired by modern daily life, offering garments that are consistent with a more minimalist and conscious individual lifestyle. Our main goal is to design garments that are not only beautiful, but also practical and comfortable, because clothes should never be an obstacle, but an emancipation.
Minimalist and democratic design is just the surface of a serious commitment to the sustainability and transparency of the information and manufacturing processes that are found at the heart of every Näz-labeled product.
The brand was born in 2017 at the hands of Cristiana, but the truth is that it is never just a person who creates a brand but all the people who worked with us from the beginning, so maybe the importance of always showing who creates our pieces, to create awareness of how many people only one piece of clothing impacts.
We now sell in 22 different multi-brand stores, with whom we have grown and learned a lot, in 7 different countries, and now our team has two new fantastic members, Raquel and Marta, not to mention the many people we work with, to make sure that not only are the products at their best, but for you at home to see them at their best too, our community is fantastic, but we want you to join us!
Visit our site, you can learn all about how we produce, who we work with, what our materials and environmental impact are!
Budget and due dates
Fortunately, we already have a lot, but in order to make sure product selection is the best possible, all of our investment capital will focus on that, so we need your help with small costs related to the store itself, so that we can focus on having a great selection.
We need some materials without which we cannot properly expose the fantastic products that we will have - The idea is to open the store on September 7th and we will only have 1 week to make everything shine to receive you, we will work hard to make sure everything goes smoothly. We are counting on you!
