Noskin is the outcome of three people coming together, with a goal to change the perception of ethical and vegan clothing.
Starting with a vision to produce high-quality vegan shoes and garments, the goal for Nōskin evolved to prove that well considered design and rugged durability has a place in ethical fashion, with no compromise to aesthetics or style.
Throughout 2020, Nōskin would grow to design the first product collection, focussed on applying modern thinking to timeless styles. Plans turned to action, and Nōskin was launched as a brand that sets a new standard for quality across vegan footwear, Japanese selvedge denim and hemp clothing.
When browsing our products, you can be confident that all items are:
Free from animal products
Staying true to the original vision of Nōskin, you won’t find any materials or practices in our clothing that harm animals. From the materials we use in our Chelsea and combat boots, to the non-leather patches on our denim, we have carefully selected alternative fabrics that we believe will not only match, but exceed their animal product counterparts.
We proudly carry the 'PETA Approved Vegan' accreditation, as a reminder that not only our team, but all of our manufacturers all commit to producing products that do no harm to animals.
All Quality - No Sacrifice.
From our denim sourced in Japan, to our microfibre PU from Spain, and our shoe manufacturer in Brazil running the largest vegan shoe factory in the world, we have carefully selected our suppliers based not only on their ability to manufacture high quality products, but also meet our high standards of staff treatment and manufacturing processes. Over the coming year, we will be adding new information about our manufacturer accreditations and improving our supply chain transparency to ensure we are always producing garments, with our commitment to ethical fashion at the forefront of our business.
Committing to sustainability
Sustainable clothing means a lot to us - and we hope that someday, we can say that our product lines are fully sustainable, but we’re not quite there yet. However, we have created many of our products using sustainable or recycled materials and all of our upcoming styles have been designed with sustainability and recycled materials as a priority.
Currently our Japanese Selvedge denim is made of recycled cotton, our jackets use hemp fabrics and organic cotton, all of our basics are 100% organic cotton and our shoes are either canvas, or made of microfibre PU leather alternatives.

Made to last
As part of our commitment to sustainability, we design our products to last as long as possible. Our dream is that the clothes we make today will be in the vintage stores of the future. We don’t just carefully select materials that are built to last, like our unique hemp cotton blends, but we also go the extra mile to ensure our products are constructed with quality in mind. From high standard construction methods such as twin needle felled seams to quality durable trims, we produce garments that are made to be worn and loved for years to come.
However, we know how it is when you love to wear something so much, it sees the extra wear and tear, so we will be releasing a range of videos with each product launch to show you some tips on how to maintain, repair and extend the life of your Nōskin clothing.
All Quality - No Sacrifice
