How it's made


MADE IN ITALY

Banuia's main concern is  to provide you with clothes exclusively made from high-quality eco-friendly dyed natural fabric. Every single bit of our product is entirely manufactured in Italy, from the Yarn used to bring to life our fiber, to the tags used to engrave the Banuia logo onto the sewing of hoodie

At the moment, considering the sanitary emergencies we've exclusively prioritized  Italian industries so that we can provide a direct contribution to our country economy.
HEMP: 70% of our mixed fiber is composed by this incredible natural textile. 

Hemp is a natural plant fiber that grows without the need for harmful herbicides or pesticides. It also replenishes the soil quality decomposing itself in only 2 weeks’s time.
