Our original inspiration comes from children’s clothing
Our story began in 2009. As with so many new stories ours too began with a need and an inspiration. We were looking for ethically produced children’s clothing which used organic cotton, were designed to grow with the child, and were made with cheerful fabrics, but we found there was very little like this on offer. Inspiration lead to action. In the summer of 2010 we launched our first collection of ecologically sound, colorful, high quality children’s clothing that was designed to grow with the child, which extended the lifespan of the garment. All of NOSH’s baby wear and children’s clothes are made using double sizing, which allows the garment to be worn for a longer time as the child grows. The life span is further extended by using long cuffs on the wrists and ankles and by providing extra snap fasteners in the crotch area.
Sewing enthusiasts in Finland and abroad quickly began noticing our top quality fabrics and designs. We added organic cotton fabrics to our product range. These we now deliver daily via our international online store. NOSH’s fabrics are known for their ecological standards, high quality, and colorful collections. Our cotton knit fabrics are a joy to cut, sew, and finish - perfect for a whole range of different sewing projects.
Growth from innovationWe launched our first collection for ladies in 2014. Our innovations were enthusiastically received, which encouraged us to continue and to add more designs to our clothing range. There is clearly a demand for high quality, well-tailored, versatile, and ecological garments for ladies
Our clothing ranges are expanding and interest in the NOSH brand continues to grow. We now have a selection of almost 700 products and our customers eagerly look forward to the launch of our new collections. We are happy that we have been able to serve our customers so well and could to convey to them the guiding principles of our company, which is high ecological and ethical standards combined with the best quality.
