NN’s Jute Fin Project is a research and development initiative in collaboration with the French NGO GOB, currently operating in Bangladesh and with Western Australian shaper Ben Hayes.
The aim is to replace glass fiber with a new eco-friendly biocomposite which will have far reaching ecological, economic and social impacts.
On top of producing surfboard fins made from the jute composite material, NN is committed to integrating social development in the Bangladeshi jute agricultural industry as well as engaging with social business through producing through a local surf club on the Coast of Bangladesh.
NN is excited to announce the collaboration and support for our new friends and suppliers at FPP (Friends for the Poor People). The organization will work with us to bring you our new and exciting upcoming products. Amongst which are the Naked Kimonos, crochet bikinis and a selection of T’s made from Bamboo, Pineapple & 100% up-cycled cotton.
The NN/FPP came about as a result of our commitment to sustainable, ethical & transparent supply chains through working with social businesses.
FPP was founded in order to bring about change to the lives of the extreme poor and disadvantaged people in Bangladesh. Their tailoring business helps fund and support a slum school of 200 children with 5 teachers, an orphanage of 24 and facilitate vocational training to ensure future job security. Founder, Dino Prabhudan’s primary aim, is to feed the children and empower them with a sense of hope for the future.
