Our range is made from fabrics that support our journey, taking steps towards a more sustainable future. We are consistently working with our supply chain to expand our offering of materials that will have less impact on the planet. We currently include Recycled Polyester and Eco Vero Viscose fibres in the NFD range which each hold their own benefits.
Recycled Polyester or rPET is made from recycled post consumer waste of plastic bottles generating less carbon emissions than traditional polyester, using less energy and reducing the impact on the earth’s natural resources.
Eco Vero Viscose is a natural, renewable and biodegradable fibre that is breathable and gentle on skin. It is made from wood pulp derived from sustainably managed forests. In production it has a 50% lower water impact than conventional viscose and up to 50% lower CO2 emissions helping to combat climate change.
We aim to ship as much product as we can vs. airing to work in a more sustainable way.
For AW 79% of our knit is made using a eco vero Viscose mix.
At NFD we are passionate about the planet and working in respectful ways to honour our collective home. This means thinking beyond our source materials and incorporating sustainable policies into our everyday. For example you might notice that the print placement on your new dress doesn't exactly match the image, thats because we are cutting materials in a way to limit wastage. You may have also noticed upgrades to our packaging, we have opted for more sustainable bags to protect your orders and will continue to reevaluate our shipping and packaging practices to prioritise our planet. We are excited to continue on this journey and share more sustainability milestones with you as we commit to a better future for everyone.
