Who We Are

Idealists, doers, experts and seekers.

In 2007 Nau was founded on the idea that style, performance and sustainability could be friends, and we’ve never looked back. We relentlessly examine and experiment in order to design modern clothing that performs and has the least impact possible on the environment.

Inside these walls you’ll find a small, dedicated group of idealists, doers, experts and seekers from the outdoor, apparel and design industries, who share a common purpose—championing a way of doing business that can redefine what business means. We know that focusing on design and its far reaching impact can result in breakthroughs far more often than it results in compromise. We see every day as a new opportunity to innovate, step up and go big (while staying small-ish). And we always start with sustainability to create what’s next.

Why We're Here

Sustainability comes standard.

Sustainability isn’t a feature, an extra, a nice to have or marketing copy. It’s our starting point and our exploration without end. It’s woven into every raw material, every pattern and every silhouette. It’s our business model, our responsibility to our community, and it’s why we partner with and support organizations that matter. We make sure sustainability is built into everything we do.

Why? Because we believe that business can be a force for good. That considering the impact of our designs is critical. And that before we invite others to rethink how they do business, we have to be completely confident in how we run ours. That’s why we carefully look at how we develop materials, source factories and how we can influence the entire supply chain. Every link in that chain matters and every decision we make counts. Our hope is that someday the way we do business can have a larger effect on the way things are done. And what was once seen as out of the ordinary will become simply what’s expected.

We’re here because we believe that there’s never been a better time to do what we do and to make it matter than right Nau.
