Nuvula’s Philosophy is to create a vast and lush universe of expression.
Our designs are meant to liberate you to “Wear Your Imagination.”
With a perpetually forward-thinking focus, our design team is always consumed with enhancing this purpose. We are resolute in transporting women to the heights of their imagination through the authority of art and design.
The fashion realm is a cyclical one, one that embraces both the novel and innovative as well as the vintage and antiquated. One of our primary design concepts is to reinvent what is known as the "staples" of fashion, deconstructing them and expanding their use. Reinvention, revision, and innovation of lines, techniques, silhouettes, and standards are the guiding principles for our work. Creating a balance between a rich use of color and a high level of sophistication, our vibrant designs occupy a grey area within the design realm, making them uniquely Nuvula.
An Eco-friendly Approach to Fashion
Beyond creative liberties and quality, Nuvula has also stood by its motto for sustainability. While experimenting with new designs and constantly producing garments, we have upheld an eco-friendly, eco-conscious business model. Today, as we introduce our all-new and very versatile textile prints for new collections, we are unconfined by guilt. For each piece we have produced to date, we followed the energy-efficient process of reactive printing. This is a low-waste technique that still produces premium results. It focuses on reusing and recirculating all damaged pieces, leftover fabric, water, and energy.
Although our designs and products have changed over the years, Nuvula was, is, and will always remain an ecoconscious, eco–friendly company. From our very conception, we have boldly placed uniquely fabulous designs with as much as possible sustainable fabrics at the heart of our operation. Striving to maintain great integrity while using green materials and a thorough knowledge/ supervision of the entire manufacturing process, we keep our love of the planet at the helm of each and every project we create.
The Journey to an Eco-Friendly Model
The Journey to an Eco-Friendly Model If the ideal activewear of the 21st century is chic, statement-making, and modern, it is also sustainable. Since its inception, team Nuvula has upheld its moral responsibility of implementing a socially conscious business model.
Eco-friendly, green materials and procedures have been the workhorse of all our creations. For our activewear collection, we have followed a reactive printing technique. The regime encourages washing and reusing fabric, recirculating water, and power-saving energy sources for the preparation and printing.
Under the multistep process, we work to minimize waste production at each stage. Unlike traditional printing means such as pigment printing, Nuvula takes up no compromise in quality and sustainability.
After all, if you must wear your imagination, you need a safe and healthy environment to do it in.
