Every time you spend money, you're casting a vote for the kind of world you want.
Näz is a sustainable fashion brand inspired by the daily life of modern self, proposing garments that are consistent with an individual, more minimalist and conscious lifestyle. Their main goal is to design garments that you not only find beautiful but also practical and comfortable, because clothes should never be an obstacle but a empowerment.
The minimalist and democratic design are only the surface over a serious commitment with sustainability and transparency of the manufacturing processes that are found in the heart of every product with the label Näz.
This portuguese brand was born as an answer for the search of a new way of producing clothes, combining minimalist and modern design and, at the same time, transparent, fair and ecological processes.
"Understanding that sustainability is a balance and that we can hardly produce something that doesn’t have any environmental impact , we are constantly looking for the best way to obtain local, raw and quality material, without generating more impact on the environment, and that has a positive social impact, inspired by the concept of circular economy, we created partnerships with Portuguese factories in order to develop new recycled products."
The brand began in the beginning of 2016, Cristiana was still in her master’s when she started developing and testing the brand in markets and fairs. Soon she realized that most of the brands we admire were producing in Portugal (well, lucky us!) but there was no brand from Portugal, and so, in 2017 we started producing for stores, Raquel joined the team and we’ve been putting up with each other since then.
Näz work with local factories, with good working conditions, and more than being their suppliers, they work close together to develop better, more sustainable, products.

Through a contemporary and democratic design they aim to reach to a bigger audience, showing that is possible to create fashionable clothes, at a fair price, that you can wear everywhere!
