About us

In such a fast-moving world, it is crucial to take your time and maintain a mindful lifestyle. What we aim for is to create minimalistic apparel meant to brighten natural beauty, not to outshine it. Essentialwear is something you need on a daily basis: for exercises or lazy weekends, for running errands or hanging out with friends.

By women. For women.

Materials

Whilst overproduction and negative environmental impacts of production are a matter of concern, Norba sticks to the idea of producing multipurpose outfits with no craving for disposable trends. Using ECONYL® regenerated nylon has been our next step towards conscious consumption: this groundbreaking fabric is recycled from ocean plastics and other synthetic waste, otherwise destined for landfill.
