UPCYCLING : NAHUEL CLOTHES
Nahuel Clothes, takes care to minimize the environmental impact as much as possible. To avoid overstocking and waste, all clothes are produced in limited edition and on pre-order: these are pieces that you will not see on everyone! In addition, the brand does not work with a collection system, preferring to regularly release new pieces according to the available fabrics and the inspiration of the moment.
Nahuel Clothes proposes clothes made in France to be as close as possible to the production and to reduce as much as possible the very strong impact of the manufacture of clothes on our planet. The models are therefore imagined and designed by the designer, then sent to be produced in workshops near Lyon.
