Nomadissem traces more than 60% of their raw materials and does extensive research into sourcing their fabrics and trimmings. They are committed to having most of their suppliers located in a radius of 500 km from their Swiss headquarters. All Italian fabrics are of preferential Italian origin and are woven, dyed and finished in Italy, the same applies for the fabrics from Switzerland, France and the UK all to minimise their footprint. Nomadissem is committed to buying fabrics where the suppliers can provide proof of origin, with the majority of their fabrics being made to order. Moreover, they source all of their fabrics directly from the mills and do not buy from third parties, enabling materials to be traced in more detail. When using man-made materials Nomadissem ensures to reduce the use of synthetic fibres that are based on non-renewable resources to an absolute minimum and mainly uses bio-based polymer fabrics or recycled materials. They are also mindful of any certifications that suppliers may hold when choosing who to partner with.
Nomadissem is currently looking at supporting a charity that combats modern day slavery and supports human trafficking victims. Nomadissem is also working with the Ecole de Couture du Valais to promote Swiss craftsmanship and manufacturing, while underlining the importance of well-made, long-lasting garments with provenance and responsible business practices at its foundation.
