Activewear close to you.
We put sustainability at the core of everything we do. At the moment, we choose to concentrate on three main factors: building a responsible design process, building a trustworthy relationship with our producer in Estonia, and sourcing the best Italian materials - where the most important factors are the feel and the longevity of the fabric. We choose recycled fabrics whenever it is possible. Our lazywear is made in cooperation with the best water saving partner we have heard of, Pure Waste.
At Nepra, we don't simply want to brand ourselves only with sustainability for many reasons. First of all, no clothing brand is 100% sustainable. The textile industry is the second-biggest polluter in the world and staggeringly the second-largest consumer of water. Making fabric uses water, energy, chemicals, and other resources that most people don’t care to think about or ever see. Moreover, the textile industry is one of the most labour-intensive industries on the planet. Creating clothes will always have a negative impact on the environment, simply on the basis that these resources are used - no matter where clothing is manufactured, or how, or what materials are used, there is still going to be an environmental and sustainability-related impact. With that said, we can be transparent and take responsibility for our actions.
Népra Supply Chain
From the very beginning, we have wanted to be honest about what we are doing and why we choose to do things the way we do. We believe the overall quality of the activewear we make is the sum of the qualities of each part of the supply chain, and we want you to be happy with your Népras as long as possible. At the moment, we have are happy that we have covered around 75% of our supply chain. These areas are totally transparent and based on real partnerships. Behind the links at the top of this page, you can read more about our materials and manufacturing.
We think knowledge is power, so we talk about responsibility, transparency, and other issues in the textile industry. On our blog Speak of the Frog, we regularly share facts related to our industry and its effects on human rights and the environment.
