Nouns Brand ◨ ◨

What is Nouns Brand ?

Nouns Brand is a concept focused on timeless and reliable apparel that knows how to have fun, built on Nouns. People often forget that the way clothes make you feel, the textures, and the materials chosen go just as far as the design printed on top. Nouns Brand is a stripped down take on the Nouns Glasses, while maintaining its recognizable iconography, with the goal of proliferating the Nouns brand at large.

As the digital and physical worlds continue to merge, we believe Nouns Brand has the potential to create a flywheel effect which grows the Nouns brand URL and IRL. We envision a future in which Nouns Brand is the go-to brand for back-to-school, summer vacation, after-work, first dates, last call, for people in all walks of life.

  • design, manufacture, and produce artisanal garments
  • open a channel of collaboration between classic brands and Nouns
  • enable people to embark on their own creative journeys through design workshops and white glove services such as wholesale clothing production

This section contains our vision for what the future of Nouns Brand could be.

Fashion is gatekept, we believe art is for everyone. To encourage others to start their own creative journeys, our dream is to create a direct-to-consumer white label service for artists to make their own clothes through Nouns Brand. We will use Nouns Blanks to allow people to print designs and empower people to create, built on Nouns.

Direct-To-Consumer White Label Service

  • We will wholesale our Nouns Brand blanks and develop a white label service for emerging artists to create their own clothes
  • Nouns White Label Facility
  • Custom color ways of Nouns blanks: Nouns Dye House
  • Team of print and embroidery specialists to customize Nouns blanks, such as t-shirts, hoodies, hats, etc.
    • Blanks are made to supply the clothing industry. Blank clothing has no added decoration. Many clothing “labels” begin with a good blank, add their own logos, designs or trimmings, re-label and on-sell to retailers, or sell direct at markets, online, etc.
  • DTG Print & Embroidery Machines
  • White Label Fulfillment Team
  • Wholesale Blank Accounts
