Locimo

Born in 1999 in Melbourne, Australia, Nobody Denim has long been celebrated for making women feel more confident in their world and in themselves.

Designed from the details up, we believe style is as much about the attitude as it is about the purpose – constantly refining and defining.

While our foundations lie in premium denim pieces including jeans, shorts, skirts and jackets, today, our approach to design mixes understated ease with confident femininity to create a uniform of quality staples that bridge fashion looks with contemporary street style and its relationship to daily life.

We believe in the longevity of our country as much as that of our collections, which is why our longstanding commitment to ethical manufacturing principles offers a unique vision of responsible design.

Nobody Denim is now available in New Zealand! Visit the Nobody Denim New Zealand online store for local shipping and available products.

Sustainability

At Nobody Denim, Sustainable business is good business. Ethics are at the heart of what we do. We’re on a journey to be a leading advocate of good business practice. We believe in a triple bottom line approach that sees people and the planet as integral to our decision-making and direction.

LOCAL MANUFACTURING

At Nobody Denim we’re committed to manufacturing the majority of our denim garments in Melbourne and guaranteeing the maintenance of fair working conditions. Not only does designing and producing in-house keep jobs and dollars in the country, it enables us to stay at the raw edge of contemporary fashion – responding to trends and street style in real-time. All the while minimising our carbon footprint.

BY MAKING LOCALLY USING OUR OWN DENIM FACTORY AND LAUNDRY, WE:

Keep jobs onshore and help keep the Australian textile manufacturing industry alive.

Employ over 80 people.

Contribute to the local economy.

Shorten our supply chain – our head office, factory, laundry and retail store are all within a 6km radius.

Increase transparency.

Reduce travel miles and minimise the carbon footprint of each garment.

ENVIRONMENT

We work with Sustainability Victoria as well as energy and materials efficiency assessors to identify ways to reduce our environmental footprint.

WATER

In Australia we live in the world’s second driest continent, behind only Antarctica. Water saving is therefore critical and a priority for us here at Nobody Denim:

Since 2017 we’ve reduced water use by 50% in our stone washing and bleaching processes.

We’re currently exploring other ways to save water, including steam recapture.

ENERGY

Nobody Denim is working to become more energy efficient across the whole company. We support the Paris Agreement on climate change and aim to decarbonise our business and supply chain, aligning with the global goal to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050.We’re at the beginning of this journey but are proud of the progress we’ve made so far. The factory has been our first focus:

Lighting accounted for 40% of the factory’s energy consumption so we switched to LEDs and significantly cut our electricity use.

We’ve saved energy by investing in more efficient technology, combining three machines into one to significantly cut electricity.

To make our sewing machines more energy efficient, we’re looking at investing in new motors.

To keep our spatial footprint small rather than expanding into bigger premises as we’ve grown, we’ve opted to stay in our existing factory. We’ve done this by making our garment assembly more efficient. This has reduced space and saved energy.

RAW MATERIALS

We believe the health of our workers, suppliers, consumers and the environment is paramount. When sourcing raw materials we aim to avoid harsh chemicals and instead opt for safer options.

IN PRACTISE THIS MEANS

In our factory we work with raw material suppliers who meet IS014001 standards - this means they not only meet, but go beyond, legal environmental requirements.

Most fabrics we use in our factory are accredited to OEKO-TEX Standard 100. This means they meet, and go beyond, national and International chemical standards.

In the Nobody Denim laundry we use natural enzymes. They replace harsh chemicals, are safe for human and environmental health, and are biodegradable.

Our laundry dyes meet REACH standards. These are the European Union’s chemical standards which meet, and go beyond, Australian standards. We do not use hazardous azo dyes.

Where possible we support local suppliers. Our YKK zips are made locally in Sydney, minimising carbon miles and supporting local industry.

WASTE

We're committed to reducing waste across the supply chain, from production to extending garment life cycle and giving "waste" a new life. To do this, we:

Make clothes to last - garments for a lifetime not a season.

Offer a repair service on jeans within 12 months of purchase.

Find better ways to make your denim:

We’ve reduced fabric waste by 9% by automating our fabric cutting.

We’ve installed new equipment that has reduced the number of garments classified as seconds by 30%.

Think creatively about waste. As part of Fashion Revolution Week 2018 we produced a capsule collection for David Jones made entirely from repurposed material.

Donate fabric offcuts to students.

Donate garments to the Darwin Aboriginal and Islander Women’s Shelter and the Alice Springs Women’s Shelter.

Recycle all our cardboard and have a goal to recycle all plastic.
