OUR STORY


“A fully sustainable world is far away, but we have to start somewhere today.”

Imagine a world where we are conscious about our consumer behavior. You and the people around you, are making a positive impact on the world. And you are still able to look good. This is how we make the world a better place. Sustainability is a very wide understanding. 

Slow fashion is a good beginning, but exclusivity makes it even better.

 

“When you want to stand out, you have to stand up for what you believe”

Unified Nature has a deep rooted love for streetwear. We know that you want to look different than your friends. When everyone has accessibility to the same clothing, then what is the cause of buying it? 

 

That’s why we offer limited editions, all the time. Once in a lifetime productions and we are constantly working to make you stand out of the crowd. The beauty of combining sustainability with exclusivity is great for the environment and even better for you. By supporting Unified Nature, you stand for a better tomorrow. And your friends have to be fast otherwise they will miss out.

 

Let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to be exclusive?



MEET THE FOUNDER


Nina Angkotta, Founder Unified Nature


Change is hard, change is challenging, but it’s less hard when done together.

My love for fashion, streetwear and nature is who made me who I am today. From a very young age, I had a dream to start my own clothing brand. But when I started educating myself in the fashion industry, I was shocked and disappointed at the same time. How clothes are produced to lose color. How the shirts are produced to fall apart as soon as possible so you have to buy new shirts every year. The huge amount of water that is wasted per T-shirt. And the list goes on and on…


The core values of my ancestors
I’m originally from the Moluccan islands. My parents told me a lot of stories about our ancestors. It inspired me so much where their collectivism culture stood for. I made it my mission to share this message through my clothing brand. Let me explain.

There is a greater emphasis on common goals over individual pursuits.

 

The world will survive without us. Mother Nature did an amazing job when we’re not here, and will continue to do this in the future. But it’s a common goal that we have to do better for society in general. We all want to look and feel good, but don’t take more from the earth than we give back. To describe it in one word: Unified.

People are encouraged to do what’s best for society.

 

This is one of the main reasons I started Unified Nature. We all talk about doing better, but where do we start? It is my purpose to take action and do what’s best for our society. When you wear Unified Nature clothing, you encourage what’s best for society; Nature.

Focus on promoting selflessness and putting community needs ahead of individual needs.

In the modern-day society we think (too much) about ‘What’s in it for me?’ 

My ancestors taught us to pay attention to what's good for us as a community. They had a lot of respect for previous, current and future generations. They treated their community and nature like they wanted to be treated themselves. 

 

I believe that this is the way we should treat each other. It shouldn’t matter what your cultural, ethnic or religious background is. At the end of the day, we all want the same; to be loved and live happily ever after.


Last but not least, the logo stands for the initials of our brand written in ALIFURU. As you can see, every little detail in our brand has a story. 

 

A unified community that stands for a better bond between nature and humans

To share my passion for the culture of my ancestors and share the message I believe in, makes me feel very proud where I came from. I invite you to join the movement and strive for a better tomorrow. Because I can’t do it alone...



The eco-urban vibe
I apply the style that I created to my daily life. It describes who I am. It defines who I want to be. But I had one burning question; ‘How can I combine my desires and do better for tomorrow?’

The exclusivity was the answer to my problems. The quality of the medium weight T-shirts are wearable all year round. We chose the neutral colors on purpose so it will easily fit in your current closet. You can combine it with your favorite hoodie. Every little detail is paid attention to. From our process to our packages, from our delivery to our hand written cards. I wanted to make sure that what we’re producing is as sustainable as possible. 

You are unique as a person and so are your clothes. Share it with the world! 
When I’m not creating, I’m doing research to educate myself around sustainability. There is so much noise out there. What does sustainability even stand for? I do research on a daily basis to create content that will teach me and our community how to live more consciously. Make better decisions. That’s our purpose. Clothing is a style, Unified Nature is a lifestyle. I use my clothing brand as a vehicle for self-improvement. And I invite you to join me along the way.

“The goal is to stand unified, for our nature and future generations.”


A lot of people always say;

“Nina, I want to do better, but I don’t know really where to start…” 

 

That’s why I created this newsletter to help you with that!

It will give you tips and tricks how you can do better in the future.
