Established in 2012 by Lis Harvey, NICO celebrates the sartorial philosophy of minimalism and understated luxury. NICO brings high quality basics and underwear to the Australian fashion landscape featuring clean lines, luxe fabrics and the styles and colours needed for the everyday. Form and function coexist with pieces that not only look beautiful, but feel beautiful to wear too.
NICO is committed to upholding and cultivating ethical and sustainable transparency in the fashion industry. NICO's organic cotton fabrics are GOTS certified and dyed using a 100% chemical free dyeing process. All ingredients and materials used throughout the process are plant based.
For example, yellow tones are achieved using tacoma flowers. The handpicked flowers are dried for 3 days before being soaked in rain water and ground thoroughly to extract the colour. During dyeing, milk, plantain sap and vegetable oils are added to fine tune the tonality and the finish.
Using plant dyed organic cotton removes the use of toxic chemicals throughout the supply chain. It also makes a crucial difference in the lives and health of the people making NICO clothing.
NICO is truly a product that is kinder to the environment and to your skin.
