Turning trees into t-shirts may sound strange, but lyocell fibers—including rayon and bamboo—have long held promise as a renewable fabric source. Over the last ten years, Nau has experimented with all sorts of new plant-based fabrics. But it wasn’t until we began working with Tencel® that we found a fabric with th

Anniversaries have a way of inviting reflection. They’re a chance to page back through the journals, crack open the photo album (or maybe scroll back up through the Instagram feed) and reflect on experiences, relationships and travels.
