The Process May Have Changed, But The Quality Remains The Same.

NAU, is hitting on all cylinders

Just over a year ago, putting their best foot forward, Nau began introducing its F/W’14 collection with the rudimentary brand ethos they have become synonymous with — creating fine garments with an Eco-friendly foundation.

For the conscious-minded, and those who take the phrase “Go Green” to heart, there probably isn’t another brand in the world that can match up. And while their collaborative efforts with Snow Peak and Nudie Jeans continues to flourish, as well as expanding their seasonal offerings, 2015 marks the beginning of a new chapter for the highly respected “Sustainable” brand.

The recycled down process began with a vision and a design concept — how to take the standards of sustainable down production to the next level. Nau worked closely with a number of partners over the course of several years to bring recycled down to life. In France, there is a vendor that gathers down from reclaimed down duvets and pillows, sorts it and sends it out for processing. A second vendor in Hungary uses a high quality process to clean, rejuvenate and sort the down to be re-purposed into outerwear insulation.

Available now are six new outerwear pieces for the F/W’15 season: the Copenhagen Down Trench for men and women, the Blazing Down Jacket for men, and the Cocoon Down Trench, Allee Down Pullover and Down Hoody Jacket for women.
