Nesh produces luxury clothing that moves with a woman through her whole day-including a yoga class! NYC-made, Eco-Friendly, Fabulous!

Nesh: Who We Are & What We're About....

We met during yoga teacher training where a very simple problem popped up during our first week: We couldn’t find anything to wear that satisfied our love of warrior II and our love of fashion simultaneously. This, coupled with being totally disenchanted professionally, led to an idea: creating a line of fantastically stylized clothing that was functional, durable and would move with a woman through her whole day--even a practice. In short, Nesh was born.

A month on, this vision began to take shape. We committed ourselves to creating a line of superior quality, eco-conscious, US-sourced clothing that was also MADE in the USA. That's why our entire creative process from design to finished garment is housed on 36th street, right in the heart of New York City's garment center. Basically, we want you to feel as good about our clothes as you do in them.

How Do We Do It?

Fabrics: We source our fabrics from trusted contacts in the garment center. All of these fabrics are either organic or recycled (whenever possible) and we are currently researching a new innovation: "re-claimed cotton". This method takes the endless supply of "scraps" and weaves them in to new bolts. This process uses less energy and has a smaller footprint that even organic cotton. We'll keep you posted!

Made in the USA:  We feel very strongly in the movement to bring jobs and manufacturing back the United States. For this reason, we have made a conscious decision not only to source but to produce all our garments in New York City. Our entire team is housed in our studio space including our designer, Bree, our pattern maker, Connie, our cutter, Fernando and our team of sewers, Jenny and Angel.

Production: Our production line is firmly in place as our studio has also been functioning as a sample making business for the past 2 years. Local production (in addition to bringing jobs back to the garment center) allows us to closely monitor our garment's quality and consistency. 

Team: We have a strong people in place from financials to sewing. All put together our group has over 100 years of experience in our respective roles. 

Where Will Your Money Go?

We will use your support and sponsorship to purchase fabrics and trimmings This will allow us to fulfill existing orders as well as create our second collection. With all the key elements in place all we need is your help to make Nesh a long-term success! 

THANK YOU!!
