Nisa is an underwear label that aims to help refugee women from the bottom up. Our underwear is lovingly sewn by women from a refugee background in a sunny studio in Wellington, New Zealand. Our mission is to provide them with meaningful and interesting paid work, while at the same time making kick-ass undies.
For most of our employees, working at Nisa is their very first job in New Zealand. Their language skills improve, along with their self-esteem and independence. They’re providing for their families, and catching public transport for the first time. They’re finding pride in their work, and gaining experience for potential future employment.
We care about our sourcing. We use GOTS certified organic cotton wherever we can, and we source our super soft elastics from Portugal.
