Upcycling and Nudnik: A Marvelous Collaboration

If you’ve ever visited our website, you may have noticed that our clothing is unlike anything else out there. Our garments are the product of upcycled engineering, wherein we use pre-consumer textile waste from the fashion industry for each of our designs. You read that right — not only does upcycling help us create unique pieces, but it also helps us reduce our carbon footprint as well! Let’s take a closer look at how Nudnik has found a way to turn pre-consumer textile waste into fashion-forward designs.

What Is Pre-Consumer Textile Waste?
Pre-consumer textile waste is apparel manufacturing waste. It includes end cuts from fabric rolls and scraps from garment construction, both of which would otherwise go to landfill or be burned or shipped away for recycling. The fashion industry produces enough pre-consumer textile waste every year to clothe the world’s population two times over — an astronomical amount! By using high quality pre-consumer textiles in its designs, Nudnik can reduce the amount of material sent to landfills and incinerators while still producing amazing clothes that customers love.

The Disruptor Tee: An Upcycling Masterpiece
One of our most popular examples of upcycling is our Disruptor Tee. This shirt is made from organic cotton jersey scraps and comes in different colors depending on what materials are available at the time of production. This allows us to be consistent in our upcycling efforts while still creating new and exciting garments each time. Not only do these shirts look fantastic, but they also help reduce the amount of textile waste that ends up in landfills each year. It truly is a win-win!

At Nudnik, we believe that everyone should have access to fashionable clothing that has been responsibly and sustainably produced. That’s why we prioritize upcycling when it comes to designing new pieces — it allows us to make use of existing resources while reducing our environmental impact at the same time. We think this kind of innovation is something worth celebrating, so why not check out some of our latest pieces today? With Nudnik, you don’t have to compromise style for sustainability — you can have them both!
