Nordenstjerne is founded on high ethics and a green mindset. We believe in the saying: Be the change you want to see in the world. Therefore, sustainability is the core of our brand – because we care about the planet’s future. But what do we actually do to put less pressure on our beloved earth? Here is our five-step explanation:
All our designs are made in the European Union and the majority is made in Denmark, where we also design everything. Not only does this ensure high quality standards and good working conditions for all employees – it also reduces unnecessary transportation. We tailor all customized designs at our own sewing room in Aarhus, Denmark.
We want to help limit overproduction in the clothing industry. Therefore, we often use pre-ordering and create limited-edition styles. In that way, we only produce according to the demand. We believe in quality over quantity. Therefore, we never mass-produce. Also, we create athletic wear of high quality, so you don’t need a new pair of pole shorts after your first spin. You can use it again and again, while the quality remains.
Why not (re)use what is already there? That is the main idea behind recycling – and the reason why we often use vintage materials for our designs. This makes the styles exclusive, one-of-a-kind and good for the environment – all at the same time. It’s a win-win situation. We also often use excess fabrics of high-quality, which we reuse for new products.
When we first heard about ECONYL®, we immediately feel in love. They make it possible to buy new products without using new resources. But how is this even possible? Well, ECONYL® rescues nylon waste (e.g. fishing nets and industrial plastic) from oceans and landfills around the globe and regenerate it into new nylon.
This creates a circle of infinitely recycling, where all waste is a new possibility of creating recycled products. It’s next-level sustainability and the better option for our environment. Today, most styles from our everyday collection are made of ECONYL® yarn, and we are very proud of this collaboration.
At Nordenstjerne we always strive for progress. By embracing the slow fashion mentality, we try to do better everyday. Our designs are timeless and made with passion, experience and a great amount of consideration. We care about every single detail throughout our process: From idea to design to production and packing.
We also believe that one piece of clothing can have several purposes. Therefore, most of our athletic wear is also perfect as beach wear. So take a dip in the ocean and feel the freedom of movement – with a conscious state of mind
We do our best to contribute to a greener world for the future generations
– wear our clothes with a green conscience!
