Portuguese-based Näz produces fair, locally made fashion.
Since its creation in 2016, Näz has been committed to being fair to its customers, manufacturers of its products, and the planet and its resources.
The founders of Näz believe that old traditions can go hand in hand with new sustainability. It is time to offer and promote clothing that respects culture, people, and the planet. The brand uses the hashtag #mindfultomorrow in its activities.
Näz wants to use local partners while creating markets and livelihood opportunities for small sustainable businesses. Näz believes that clothing buyers also want to support humanity. We can bring new light and perspective to the apparel industry.
Näz manufactures its clothes transparently. Information on the entire production process is available, from the sourcing of materials to the handling of the finished product.
The garments are made from organic materials such as sustainable cotton and linen. The colors are inspired by nature in the Portuguese style, with sophisticated natural shades combined with sun, sky, and sea nuances.
