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.
What is pre-consumer textile waste?!
Pre-consumer textile waste is waste created during the making/ manufacturing of a product. Post-consumer textile waste is the waste created when a product has been used/ worn by the consumer and then discarded.
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.
