Let’s face it—making activewear has an environmental footprint. And, as much as we love the idea of an all-natural gym set, we also know that performance and sustainability must go hand in hand.

So, do we throw in the towel? Absolutely not.

Instead of backing down, we’re stepping up to make our activewear as clean and low-impact as possible. Because let’s be honest—nobody needs another brand that talks the talk without walking the walk.

And at Nuttch, we’re all about striding—comfortably, of course—towards a better planet. And we do our best. Here’s how.


At Nuttch, we’re on a mission to understand their impact—from the ground up or the fiber up. We’re all about making conscious choices, picking the best, and doing the best for our planet, people, and products.

We’re big on traceability. Knowing where our yarns come from and how they’re made matters to us. That’s why we’ve chosen GRS-certified recycled yarns—because we can follow their journey from production to product. We want our materials to be as clean and safe as possible—free from hazardous chemicals, kind to those who make and wear our products, and gentle on the earth.

When we talk about our yarns, we’re talking about materials that meet the highest environmental standards. We consider all these factors: water impact, energy use, land use, cost, greenhouse gas emissions, human and eco-toxicity, garment care implications, and availability. It’s a comprehensive approach because we believe in doing thorough homework.

So, what materials do we use?


By adopting a mechanical recycling process, Q-NOVA® transforms nylon waste into a new, eco-friendly polymer, sidestepping the heavy energy demands of chemical recycling. This choice significantly cuts down energy use and carbon emissions, marking a leap towards a more sustainable fashion future.


ECONYL® takes the game even further. It’s not just recycling—it’s reinventing. By turning waste into wearables, ECONYL® showcases the power of innovation in driving the fashion industry towards sustainability. It’s a testament to what we can achieve when we think creatively about waste and wear.

Production Process

We’re making activewear that cares as much as you do.

Ever wondered who’s behind your favorite activewear and how it’s made? Spoiler alert: it’s a lot more important than you might think.

At Nuttch, we're not just about making activewear—we're about making a difference. That's why we proudly craft 100% of our products in Italy, a country renowned not just for its impeccable fashion sense but for its rigorous standards in workers' rights and labor practices. Here's how we ensure that our commitment to being good extends beyond our products, right to the people who make them.

Fairness and Respect

From hiring to daily operations and even in the unfortunate event of termination, we operate on principles of fairness, respect, and dignity. Every decision is made with the well-being of our team in mind, ensuring a positive and supportive workplace for all.

Safety for Everyone

Harassment or abuse, be it physical, psychological, or verbal, is not
tolerated within our walls. We foster an environment where everyone
feels safe, respected, and valued, creating a culture of mutual respect
and support.

Fair Wages, Better Lives

Our commitment extends to providing not just the minimum but fair wages and benefits that reflect the skill, dedication, and passion our team brings to their work. We're committed to enhancing the lives of our workers, ensuring they and their families can enjoy a comfortable,
secure life.

Making activewear, our way.

This is how your favorite Nuttch activewear comes to life. It’s a journey of passion, precision, and a deep commitment to the planet. Let’s walk you through it step by step.

step 1

The quest for the perfect yarn

It all starts with the yarn—but not just any yarn. At Nuttch, we’re picky for a good reason. We scour the globe for GRS-certified recycled yarns that meet our sky-high standards for sustainability and performance. This is where science meets style—we select yarns that not only have a minimal environmental footprint but also pack the punch needed for your active lifestyle. It’s a meticulous process, but hey, perfection takes time.


step 2

The magic of knitting

Next, we bring our chosen yarns to life in a process that’s as innovative as inspiring. Our local partner, nestled in the same production district, takes the lead. Picture this: nylon yarn flowing into state-of-the-art knitting machines, crafting garments from top to bottom in one seamless piece. It minimizes waste and slashes our carbon footprint. And those intricate, hand-sewn details? They’re the work of local artisans, infusing each piece with a touch of human perfection.


step 3

Dyeing, but make it clean

Color brings our activewear to life, but not at the planet’s expense. Our dyeing process is a model of eco-responsibility. We’re talking about strict regulation of chemicals to protect both humans and habitats. Our partner factory is a wizard in water management, operating within a closed-loop system that treats and reuses water like the precious resource it is. This production stage is powered by eco-friendly machines and a healthy dose of solar energy and meets the rigorous OEKO-Tex Standard 100 certification. It’s clean, green, and everything in between.


Environmental Responsibility

Not just carbon neutral—we’re carbon conscious

At Nuttch, we’ve gone full detective mode on our carbon footprint. Yep, we’ve counted every last greenhouse gas emission, from when our materials are born to when they land on your doorstep.

Why? Because we’re obsessed with making activewear that doesn’t just look good on you but is also good for the planet. Being carbon-neutral certified isn’t just a badge for us—it’s a promise.

Clean Energy? Check.

Our dye house is nailing it in the eco-friendly department. This place makes sure workers are happy, and the planet is happier, minimizing environmental side effects like it’s no big deal.

The coolest part? They’ve gone solar, covering over 70% of their daytime energy needs. It’s a power move towards self-sufficiency, slashing carbon footprints, and saving power in a high-energy industry. Talk about setting the bar high!

Clean Chemistry? Double check.

Flashing the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certification, you’re basically giving a big thumbs up to keeping everyone safe—consumers, workers, and Mother Earth.

It’s like your products are saying, “We’ve got your back,” making sure any sketchy chemicals stay way below the “no worries” line, sticking to OEKO-TEX’s strict safety regulations, from the yarn to the finished fabrics and all the treatments in between.

We give back—always.

Our promise to you and the planet.

We really want to make a change, and crafting amazing activewear is just the beginning. At Nuttch, we’re driven by the belief that to truly make an impact, we need to extend our efforts beyond our products and into the heart of our planet.

Partnering with 1% for the Planet allows us to contribute to various environmental causes, from combating climate change and preserving wildlife to supporting sustainable agriculture and clean water initiatives.

It's about making every purchase from Nuttch count towards a larger purpose, ensuring that you're part of a community dedicated to making a real difference with every stretch, sprint, and stride.

wow, thank you for reading all that!

What’s next? Always more.

Achieving carbon-neutral certification isn’t our victory lap—it’s just the warm-up. We’re on a never-ending quest to refine, reassess, and up our game. Why? Because the planet deserves better, and so do you.
