Nisa is an underwear label and social enterprise, employing women from refugee and migrant backgrounds. For the Nisa team, a job is about so much more than a pay cheque – it’s about making friends, practising English and feeling like a valued member of a team.
Nisa is located and manufactured in Wellington, New Zealand.
Who makes your clothes?
Our employees – our mission is to employ women from refugee and migrant backgrounds.
Can you share a little more about your values?
Ethically-made: We have control over our entire production to ensure that we are supporting our team.
Locally-made: The brand was built in Wellington and we still produce every pair of underwear in our workshop and store on Willis St.
Made to order: We can customise the straps and cup sizes of some of our bras.
Minimal waste: We use plastic-free packaging and underwear production to reduce fabric offcuts.
Social enterprise: We employ women from refugee and migrant backgrounds.
Sustainable: We use GOTS certified organic cotton and recycled materials.
Transparent: You can walk into the Nisa workshop to see the garments being made.
Diversity and inclusion: We try to show a diverse range of people wearing Nisa garments. We currently have an inclusive sizing range that we will be expanding as the business grows.
Which particular fabrics do you use?
We use GOTS certified organic cotton for our underwear and ECONYL regenerated nylon for our swimwear, to reduce our footprint on the planet.
Can you share some labels you admire?
Little Yellow Bird, AWWA, Indigo and Iris.
