We believe the best way to be truly sustainable is not to create or buy a new product.
The second-best way is to choose the right, high-quality garment designed to last.
With proper care, NINA YUUN piece will outlast other types of garments.
If your garment is defective or damaged, we will mend it within 2 years of the date of purchase.
We offer to upcycle for selected garment.
Due to its unique qualities, every NINA YUUN garment will have a long and productive life.
After two years from the date of purchase, you have the option to:
- have your garment redesigned (among suggestions by design office)
- have your garment upcycled to create another product at a cost of only 30% of the original price.
NINA YUUN Selection
Some design pieces among curated selection of NINA YUUN, are directly delivered from the best artisans in South Korea. We donate 10% of the sales from “NINA YUUN SELECTION” for carbon emission offset.
See how we calculate our carbon emission and where we are donating: in the product info section.
Our ethical approach
We only work with selected factories in Seoul, South Korea. These are all family-led businesses (SMEs) with a strong reputation and years of experience in the apparel and textile industry. We know them well and nurture a strong relationship with the owners. They are part of the NINA YUUN family and proud to produce clothes for foreign markets. We can stand behind these manufactures - because we know that we remunerate them fairly and give them reasonable deadlines. In return we know that the quality of our garment will be according to the standard we want for you, our customers.
We partner with institutional organizations in Korea that guarantee adherence to labour rights and ethical working conditions, namely the Council of Fashion Designers of Korea (CFDK) and the Korean Apparel Industry Association (KAIA).
Designed in Switzerland, made in Korea
Each piece is designed by the creative director, Nina Yuun. The prototypes are made in the designer's atelier in Burgdorf, Switzerland. Once an order is placed, selected pieces from the collection will be produced in South Korea. 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 Korea who ensure that the quality is up to the standard we request. Each garment is checked before shipped to Europe. Why do we do this? We want to avoid travelling the world as much as possible but at the same time guarantee flawless quality and perfect finishes of our products. Also, our timeless and durable pieces will be a loyal and true friend to you (and your wardrobe) for many years.
