nunchi & sustainability
The Lean Closet Movement
Becoming eco-conscious starts at home. We want you to keep the pieces you absolutely love and invest in high quality pieces that’ll last you beyond ongoing trends. At nunchi, we focus on classic designs that’ll become lasting staples built to stay with you through the milestones in your life.
Reduce Waste, Don't Create It
We don’t want to create excess waste. To this end, our collections are tightly curated with limited quantities.
Our entire 14K gold filled collection is handcrafted locally in the U.S. and sustainably made using recycled gold. Additionally, our body and mask chains are up-cycled, a process that creatively reuses unwanted materials by transforming them to newer pieces. Our up-cycling initiative is a full pipeline process, from preventing waste to supporting fellow small businesses. All of our body and mask chains are lovingly handmade from unused jewelry from local small vendors. Re-designed into unique, multi-functional products, nunchi’s body and mask chains are tailored to fit all shapes and sizes.
Our products are shipped in packaging that is 100% recyclable, from our black mailers to our cardboard boxes. Even our labels and stickers, right down to the very adhesive, are 100% recyclable and FSC certified: the "gold standard" designation for wood harvested from forests that are responsibly managed, socially beneficial, environmentally conscious, and economically viable.
Our Gift Wrap
Our black velvet jewelry pouches are hand-sewn by a small family owned business in Shenzhen, China. Because they are individually made by hand, each jewelry pouch is unique and may vary slightly from the other.
All gift notes are handwritten on a thick matte card stock paper, also 100% recyclable and FSC certified.
