NIKIN is a sustainable fashion label from Switzerland and plants a tree for every product sold. A single tree doesn’t change the world overnight, that’s why NIKINs mission is: “Tree by Tree” – one tree after the other. With that mission in mind, NIKIN invests in tree planting programs to counteract the gobal deforestation. With every single product sold, the brand donates a certain amount to their partner organisation “One Tree Planted“, to whom NIKIN maintains a close relationship. The American non-profit organisation plants and conducts tree planting campaigns around the world.
NIKIN was founded in 2016 by best friends Robin Gnehm and Nicholas Hänny. They’ve always been closely connected to nature and wanted to give something back by combining producing sustainable and fair fashion and planting trees. It’s important for the Swiss fashion label to always be innovative, modern and open-minded but at the same time sustainable and fair. That’s why they attach great importance to environmentally friendly and fair production. The fashion label strives to maintain a good relationship with its manufacturers and to keep production routes as short as possible. Meanwhile almost all NIKIN products are manufactured fairly in Europe. Since January 2019 NIKIN and most of their products are offically certified by “GOTS” (Global Organic Textile Standard) which guarantees sustainable and fair production.
In order for NIKIN to be able to call itself a sustainable label, that aims to be a role model for many other companies, the company is also committed to making its products as durable as possible. The materials with which the products are manufactured with therefore play a central role. In addition to organic cotton, the company mainly uses bamboo and recycled polyester. The NIKIN classics and most popular products include the Treeanies, TreeShirts, TreeHoodies, TreeSocks, TreeBags and TreeBottles. With its philosophy and innovative products, NIKIN is getting closer to its goal one step at a time: making fair and sustainable products accessible to everyone.
