We believe that the most significant way to contribute to the reduc- tion of waste in the industry is by closing product life cycle through Upcycling.
Upcycling or “Supra-recycling” is a process by which objects or re- sources that were to be discarded are given a new use or life throu- gh creativity. New objects are created whose value is greater than the value of the resources in their original state.
One way we implement this process is with our “Reworked” collec- tion. This collection was born out of our desire not to fall into the traditional retail cycle of marking down items that were not sold. When a season ends, we collect some pieces, we intervene and reinvent them and sell them again with this added value. We inter- vene by exchanging pieces such as pockets, sleeves, neck, adding laser prints and also making designs with bleach.
In addition, we give clients the opportunity to recycle their old Jeans, turning them into bags, backpacks and fany packs for the purchase of S /. 100.
All _NIM productions are cut on a cutting table that also cuts pro- ductions of major international brands. We are always paying atten- tion to the spaces in the boards of the various productions to try to fit garment patterns and thus help reduce the waste of fabric from each cut. We use these pieces to make scrunchies, masks and also patchwork garments.
We never try to buy new resources for our productions, which is why we source 90% of our fabrics and accoutrements from deadstock warehouses. What is deadstock? Deadstock are goods or products that are no longer expected to be sold be- cause they have become obsolete. By sourcing our supplies in these warehouses, we help reduce deadstock levels and give them new life.
