Ever been to our adopted home state of Goa? Already lucky enough to be our neighbours in this little slice of paradise?! Either way, we've got one more reason (there are so many) why India’s tropical heaven is ready to welcome you with open arms this season.
Yup, it's true: there's a real-life No Nasties store in town!
One of the biggest reasons why our customers love No Nasties is the fabric - the softness of it, the textures, the lovely hand feel against the skin. We wanted folks to get a chance to touch this fantastic fabric, and a physical store does just that - come try everything on! Also, we love talking to people and creating more awareness of our cause. So bring all your fairtrade, organic questions and let’s chat :)
Where to find us? We've partnered with our friends at the amazing Bean Me Up vegan cafe to set up shop in their cool, breezy jungle-chic Vagator grounds for the season. No Nasties designer Shweta & our newest super-intern, Jayanth, planned out & executed the interiors of the store and all the visual merchandising magic. They had to not only create a look representing our brand's eco-friendly values, but also include the various other organic/vegan foods and local sustainable gift items available there. Design brief nailed - it's looking so good!
Bean Me Up was a natural choice for our location. Vegan food & organic clothing - it's a great pair! Many of their customers are already conscious consumers and peace loving souls, so it's a good fit for us and a lovely place to spend time.
On the subject of spending some time at the cafe – we can't fail to recommend some favourites! Take our word for it and order the Cosmic Sampler. As if something with that name even needs an explanation, it's a platter of everything amazing on offer from the vibrant and varied fresh kitchen. Cool down with a zingy Frosty Basil Lemonade, and then if you've got even just a tiny bit of space left – the Pina Colada Raw Vegan Cheesecake. Nuff said.
So what are you waiting for? Come say hi and meet the lovely Shraddha and Tanvi who are managing the day-to-day store operation. Doors are open 10am-10pm every day except for Tuesdays, and we'll be there til March/April, while Bean Me Up remains open for the season.
All our new collections are there to peruse at your leisure – did you always wonder what a Tunic Dress would look like on you? Or which tee layers best with which shirt? Or how many ways you can wear our wraps and scarves?! We dare you not to fall in love with something unexpected and different. Bestsellers so far include the men's Raglan Hoodies and Flared Tanktops for the ladies.
Psst! There's a lot of samples that you can't find anywhere else and some seconds that are on sale too. You can score discounts of over 60% on the sale items but it's all very limited stock. (Hint: rush!)
Setting up a store – even a temporary one – is a big deal for an online brand and we're loving it! What have Team No Nasties learned so far from the experience?
- That manifesting your brand ethos in a physical space is challenging!
- That we love talking to people and engaging with them!
- That people love Goa as much as we do!
It's awesome to see our online supporters pop in and meet us face to face, as well as getting to introduce No Nasties to new people for the first time. There is so much love for No Nasties out there. It's great to hear that and feel the love for what we're doing.

So... we’ll be seeing you soon? :)
