niin appreciates craftsmanship in all its forms. Having sourced artisans workshops with unique skills and techniques, niin works with mainly family-run businesses to create quality finished designs.
It is through years of research and development that have allowed niin to secure contracts with production teams across South East Asia. Through these long-standing relationships, niin is able to use non-traditional materials and off-cuts to create their unique design aesthetic.
Using driftwood sourced by local communities in the Phillipines, discarded abalone shells collected from Hong Kong restaurants, and furniture factory seconds, niin’s production team work their magic with Hsu’s designs to bring niin’s eco-chic style to life.
It is because each niin collection features various elements of recycled or sustainably sourced materials, every piece is unique. niin also bring the use of recycled materials and up-cycling into their boutique store in Hong Kong - sourcing display pieces made from re-purposed materials. And when you purchase a piece of niin, you will receive a special piece of nature lovingly wrapped in recycled packing.
niin's first producers were a husband and wife team whom Hsu befriended at a Hong Kong market. They still produce for niin today, alongside other family run businesses in the Philippines and Thailand that niin visits regularly.
niin has donated sale proceeds and helped to raise awareness for the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), CUIPO, Clean Air Network, and Ecovision. niin has also organized beach cleanups for the Hong Kong International Coastal Cleanup Challenge and taken an active role in advocating marine conservation and Hong Kong's anti-shark-finning cause. niin's most recent work for WWF includes a collaboration with Marissa Fung-Shaw of Creative Partnerships Limited to create the Gaia Bracelets collection. As well as being sold via the niin Boutique and online, the Gaia Bracelets are also available at several locations worldwide such as Four Seasons Hotels, Kapok and the National Museum Monaco to name a few.
