HANDMADE IN SWITZERLAND & EU
Each piece is designed by the creative director, Nina Yuun. The prototypes are made in the designer's atelier in Winterthur, Switzerland. Once an order is placed, selected pieces from the collection will be produced in Switzerland, Bulgaria, and Croatia. We don't produce stock - because we believe that there is a dangerous oversupply on garments in the global market. We work with textile specialists in these three countries who ensure that the quality is up to the standard we request.
Our commitment to sustainability is reflected in every aspect of our business. For instance, we exclusively use natural fibers for all of our textile curation. Additionally, we use European deadstock textiles for 50% of our collection, which helps to reduce waste and minimize our environmental impact. We firmly believe in contributing to the circular cycle of the fashion industry, and we strive to achieve this goal in every possible way. By using natural fibers and repurposing deadstock textiles, we are taking an important step toward building a more sustainable future for the fashion industry.
MINIMALISTIC PRODUCTION CYCLE
For us, sustainability is about working on the lists that we are capable of as a small brand.
As our central infrastructure for garment production stays in South Korea, and it is inevitable to use flight as our logistics, we have developed an extreme minimalistic procedure of production to minimise our carbon emissions. Our samples for the new edition is finished with the production of the coming season simultaneously, resulting in 1-way logistics a year.
*the Whole production of Upcycled garments stays entirely in Switzerland.
All of NINA YUUN pieces are made of natural fibre that is easy to care for.

The second-best way is to choose the right, high-quality garment designed to last.

Even after our warranty offer, there are ways not to harm the planet; find how to compost the clothes here.
ZERO WASTE APPROACH
Every textile and material is flexibly placed in multiple products and those in the next edition.
For example, leftover fabric from cut out of edition 03 is used as a lining or bias tape to finish the hem of the quilted vest of edition 4.5. Our editions are intertwined and connected to minimize waste.
Not only that, we constantly revisit our previous collections to reinvent them to add to the new edition.
