Textile production contributes more to climate change than international aviation and shipping combined.

Nudnik engineers our 'Future-Proof' kidswear from pre-consumer textile waste that would otherwise pollute the planet.

On the surface, there’s not a lot of crossover between fashion and waste management, but in reality, fast fashion is now the second largest polluter on the planet with way too many tentacles: the chemicals in the dyes, the fact that it takes 2700 litres of water to manufacture one t-shirt, the synthetic blended fabrics shedding microplastics throughout our water systems, and the fact the fashion industry has the highest amount of both pre-consumer and post-consumer waste, with almost everything eventually ending up in landfills or being burned. We just simply weren’t ok with this and set out to shake things up! And we did. We’ve disrupted how we make, package and consume clothing.

The form of pre-consumer textile waste Nudnik uses is called 'cutting waste' or 'off/cut fabrics'. These are the smaller scraps of fabric produced during the cutting of garments that are usually landfilled or burned. There is enough cutting waste produced by the industry each year to give every person on the planet 6 new t-shirts! Many people don't view cutting waste as valuable because it comes in small and sometimes irregular shapes, however, the forms of waste that are the most challenging to use is what excites Team Nudnik! We have engineered our products to utilize these small scraps and the result is a cool, contemporary patchwork that has become recognizable around the world.

"From a very young age we learned how to collect, sort and process waste. As we got older, we realized how big of a problem waste has become because of over-consumption and the mixing of materials. The waste we produce today is very difficult to recycle and our landfills are filling up. At Nudnik, we reimagine waste because we truly believe it's the greatest resource of our time. Our products are not only made entirely from waste but they wont end up as waste either!"
