Nojin: the sustainable fashion brand that’s turning waste into a must-have kimono

It’s difficult not to fall in love with the core values of Nojin.


The brand, founded by Ngoc-Hien, a german-based designer, is a slow-fashion, gender-neutral clothing brand that uses 100% natural fibres in its collection.


That should cover all the bases if you are looking to be a more conscious consumer, right?


Well, Ngoc-Hien doesn't stop there.



She is always looking into ways of improving her work and her impact on the environment, which is a gift to all of us.


Nojin works with made-to-order or produces in small batches. However, there is always that piece of fabric that has to be cut off.

Ngoc-Hien is now making sure nothing goes to waste and also pleasing customers with a brand new kimono design: the SCRAPMONO.

Scraps, literally defined as “a small piece or amount of something”, are what is used. Focused on minimizing fabric waste, Ngoc-Hien is leaving no thread behind and using denim scraps to make unique pieces.


And The Next Cartel has a sneak peek for you of their latest release:

The production is described on their official page:


Nojin’s upcycling goal is to put all waste fabric to use: leftover material is being collected each time a Nojin garment has been produced.


The SCRAPMONO is made of 226 leftover scrap pieces in various shades of blue denim.


This one-of-a-kind jacket fits loosely, comes with big front pockets and contrasted coloured circle detailing on the back.

The inspiration for their newest drop is one of the signature designs, the MONODOT silhouette.



We couldn’t be more ready to add the eco-friendly kimono to our spring closet and it’s already available on Nojin’s online store.
