About

Nove creates sustainable ready-to-wear clothing for expecting modern mothers. The versatile pieces can be worn before, during and after pregnancy. Our purpose is to give  timeless designs for the mothers and women of today.

People want to express themselves through individual style and this does not inevitably change during and after pregnancy. That is why Nove believes that clothing must adapt to the changing needs and demands of women. Sustainable materials ensures comfort and style, while keeping our planet in mind. Nove is created for all women to feel and be their most beautiful self everyday, without compromise. 

Design

Comfort shouldn't compromise on style. Nove makes sure you don’t have to. Nove garments are timelessly designed, creating durable essentials in your wardrobe that will last a lifetime. We hope you curate your Nove garments just as how art should be collected, over time and with conscious thought considered. Sustainability over fast fashion is what we believe.

We have thoughtfully designed our garments to fit all body types. Our uniquely designed garments are adjustable to your mood and your body. We make it available to highlight your bump during pregnancy but also discreetly cover-up when you feel.

In our atelier we create our own patterns customized and designed for all - we have even created pregnant belly molds from friends and family, we have wrapped plaster to our loved ones bellies to get each unique belly shape. These molds are used to mimic pregnancy that help us perfect our garments during the design process.

Material

We believe in caring for the earth as much as we care for you, therefore we source as sustainable as possible. Our collection is created from the finest cotton, peace silk, wool and bamboo fabrics. The best quality is just as important to us as design. 

Pledges 

Please note that the pictures show samples, and minor adjustments will be made for the final products. All garments come with a branded tag that contains care instructions. Get your hand on these pieces for a special pre-launch price.

Why We Need Your Support

With your help, Nove’s first round of production would be pre-financed. Kickstarter gives us the opportunity to invest further in Nove. Also, the more pre-orders we receive through Kickstarter, the more affordable our final prices are going to be. A bigger supply request would result in lower production costs and final garment prices for the customer. With your support, Nove is one big step closer to the launch. You will help us making every woman feel and look how she wants, in all phases of her life - her beautiful self. 

The Timeline 

FAQ:

How sustainable is Nove?

Nove aims to be as sustainable and ecological as possible. However, we are still learning as well. During our design process, we’ve learned for example that organic cotton is more ecological than normal cotton in regard of chemicals, but much less ecological in terms of water usage. We therefore balance the pros and cons in every decision we make, aiming for the most ethical option possible. Nove is constantly growing in order to make our world and our customers happier. Please get in touch with us directly for specific questions, or to discuss sustainable fashion further. We are open to learn from your ideas and suggestions so we can provide you even better premium quality garments.

Where is Noves production held?

We have sourced an ethical production site in the south of Bulgaria. Plovdiv is European Culture Capital 2019 and it has the country's largest economy. The region is known for its excellent textile industry.

How was Nove created?

Nove was founded by Janina Waschkowski, a mother of two, in 2019. Nove was created to give all women and expecting mother’s modern essentials that could be worn before, during and after pregnancy.

How can I get updates of new collections and product releases?

To find out more about upcoming product releases and new collections go to our website: www.nove.store and sign-up to our newsletter.

When will my items be shipped?

If our goal is made, fingers crossed, we will be shipping all items late October or early November.

Do Nove garments also allow me to breastfeed?

Whether you choose to wear our clothes for the purpose to breastfeed or not, we cater to all. Our clothes are made to make you feel good before, during and after pregnancy and yes our clothes allow you to feel your best while breastfeeding your baby.

Which countries can Nove be shipped?

We ship to Germany, EU and Switzerland for the meantime. We would love to ship to every country - we are working on it. Please get in touch in case you live somewhere else.

What are the shipping costs?

The shipping for Germany, EU and Switzerland is included in the price of your pledge. Please get in touch with us for other shipping destinations, we will find a solution.

What happens if my package gets lost?

We ship with DHL, all parcels will be sent insured.

Where can I buy Nove?

We will go live in October, at the moment you can only pre-order via Kickstarter. Check out our e-commerce store: www.nove.store to subscribe to our newsletter and be the first to receive information about the launch date directly in your inbox.

How do I know what size to purchase?

We have a size guide - all measurements are listed to ensure you find the most ideal size for you. The sizes run true to size, rather loose than tight fit. 

Risks and challenges

In manufacturing there will always be a risk of delay. However, we have a great relationship with our local production manager in Bulgaria and all the fabric suppliers. We did add buffers to the lead times to make sure that we can balance out any unforeseen challenges, such as delivery delays or production issues. In case there is anything that might cause a delay, you will get informed immediately. If you live outside of the EU, you will be responsible for any applicable duty or VAT charges. When it comes to customs, there is always a risk that a parcel might not get through in time. This risk is as low as it would be for any other item being shipped from outside your country. Some countries are specifically known for being very slow with customs, as you would probably know then. Despite this, all of our parcels are insured, you will receive a tracking number and you’ll always be informed about the status of your shipping.
