We regularly visit our suppliers to ensure the quality and fits of the collection and to check working conditions and environmental protection measures. So you can rely on not only receiving a high-quality garment made from great fabrics, but also on fair pay and social working conditions during production.
We only use the finest, softest and non-toxic fabrics and dyes. We use 100% organic cotton for the capsule collection. We manufacture under fair and social conditions in Portugal. We are a small, sustainable label and therefore only produce small quantities so as not to waste resources. The products can therefore occasionally be sold out - but this also means they are truly unique. Find out more about our clothing production.
Bags that simply feel better in all respects. For NORDLICHT Bags must meet several requirements. A timeless but special design and our main material is cotton canvas. This tightly woven cotton fabric is a traditional fabric for bags; it is tear-resistant and water-resistant. We like the special look and the versatility. Find out more about our production of bags and backpacks.
For our NORDLICHT We wanted something special when it came to shoe designs. Naturally, fairly and sustainably manufactured in Europe. We decided on a really special pair of sneakers and classic sandals. Both designs that you will enjoy wearing over the years and trends. Here you can find all the details about our shoe production.
It is important to us that our producers understand our sustainable mission and want to work on it together with us. That's why we've always strived for long-term partnerships since we were founded in 2014. Ethical production is one of our company’s core values. No child labor, living wages and appropriate working conditions are an essential part of our production. Without intermediaries, we work directly with our production facility and not only visit it, but also work together on site to match the right cuts and fabrics, especially at the beginning of our new collections.
