MN Uniform was launched in 2014 by Matt Nash. Growing up, his heroes wore coveralls, not capes. Following his fashion design degree, Matt did a post-grad thesis on workwear, compounding his love of beautiful uniforms that work, hard. With a penchant for the utilitarian aesthetic and backed by extensive experience in menswear and accessory design, Matt and his MN Uniform team deliver aprons like no other. Proudly designed and made in New Zealand from his Northland base, Matt enjoys working with progressive businesses that take their brand seriously. Matt also has a bespoke clothing and leather-goods label MATT NASH , a creative outlet that gives him an opportunity to further his skills in designing accessories, womenswear and menswear.
Our aprons are designed to be worn for years - they wear in, not out. We do sneaky things like double folding seams, a construction technique that means all the raw edges are sewn into the garment for a more premium and hard-wearing finish. When cutting fabric for aprons, we use tailoring techniques that give the most sustainable cut, minimising any fabric wastage.
At MN Uniform it’s important to us that we operate in an ethical and sustainable manner. Our aprons are proudly New Zealand made, right from design through manufacture to finishing. We love to find creative, plastic-free ways to package your garments. Any remaining pieces of fabric are collected and used to create stylish patchwork aprons. We gift these to charities to support projects that we love.Our Embroiderer is a living wage employer who follows sustainable practices in all areas.
We can help you with your team’s full uniform by providing high-quality basics to complement our MN aprons. We partner with New Zealand company AS Colour to provide cost-effective, high-quality tees, long-sleeve shirts, caps and more. Our decorator of ten years can screen-print or embroider any apparel with your branding. We just require an EPS or JPEG file of your logo to get started.
We love teaming up with awesome people to create beautiful and unique products. We get a thrill from working on creative projects with awesome brands, designing something one-off that brings joy to customers. Some of our collabs have included custom tote bags for Ecostore, rucksacks for Triumph and Disaster, custom oilskin aprons for Orphans Kitchen, and leather luggage tags for Nurture Change - are you next?
