​​Collapsed apparel brand Nisa is back – with a new range

(Source: Nisa)

Apparel brand Nisa has launched a new range of environmentally-conscious swimwear, marking its return after ceasing the business in July. 

The collection, which includes three one-pieces, two bikinis, and one rash top, is suitable for all ages and body types. With sizes varying from XS to 2XL, each swimsuit is reversible due to the fabric’s double layering and a different solid colour on each side.

The collection uses the regenerated nylon yarn obtained from post-industrial and post-consumer waste. It features a ribbed structure that creates a natural breathability feature, allowing it to be moisture-wicking, cool, and pleasant to wear.

Nisa’s Swim 2023 collection is manufactured in small batches and only re-made when those batches sell out, reducing waste and streamlining production. The entire collection is sewn at the Nisa factory in downtown Wellington.

After closing at the end of July, Nisa was resurrected in the following months thanks to a last-minute takeover by staff/former workers, who launched a successful Pledge Me crowdfunding effort. Their campaign was financed in less than 24 hours and raised more than double the amount they set out to raise.

Nisa Swim 2023 is available online and at the Nisa workshop at 99 Willis Street in Wellington.
