Based out of Portland, OR, the Nau designers have created urban and outdoor apparel that has multifaceted use; Nau knows the importance of pieces that are not only aesthetically pleasing, but that promise great performance, too.
The classic designs, eco-friendly fabrics, and timeless colors will live long after the season is over and the pieces will look as good on city streets as they perform well in the outdoors.
Balancing the triple bottom line of people, planet, and profit, 2% of Nau's every sale goes towards its humanitarian and environmental Partners for Change. Along with this, all of the pieces are created in a sustainable manner, whether that be from synthetic fabrics that contain high recycled content or managed toxics in all product finishes and dyes.
So, with that said, the real question is, why not Nau?
