2019 was a year full of highlights for NIKIN. We have summarized the most beautiful and important moments for you.



The two NIKIN founders Robin and Nicholas have reviewed the NIKIN year for you. In the video they tell you what we experienced together this year. We have listed some points from the video for you.

GOTS certification for NIKIN

In January 2019, NIKIN reached another sustainability milestone. After careful inspections, we received the GOTS label. GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) guarantees ecologically produced fabrics. All information about certification and the label can be found here.

Tree planting day in Lenzburg

In March, NIKIN planted trees on local soil for the first time. In Lenzburg, around fifty NIKIN fans and the entire NIKIN family planted over 500 trees. With beautiful weather and a great atmosphere, we were able to give something back to nature - right on our doorstep.

Visit to One Tree Planted

Our partner organization One Tree Planted (OTP) takes care of planting the trees for us. They always plant the trees where they are needed most. So that we can get our own idea of ​​their work, the two NIKIN founders Nicholas Hänny and Robin Gnehm visited OTP in Colorado and planted trees with them.

Several awards for NIKIN

NIKIN grew rapidly in 2019. This didn't go unnoticed by various large award organizations. We were particularly pleased about the following three awards:

  • Final participation in the Swiss Economic Award
  • Swiss Brand of the Year in the “Price-Performance” category
  • Title “Aargauer of the Year” for our Chief Environmental Officer (CEO) Nicholas Hänny


First pop-up store from NIKIN

Like little children, we could hardly wait for its opening: our pop-up store opened in Zurich in November. From TreeSocks to clothing to TreeBottles, customers can buy products from our range there. A little NIKIN paradise in the heart of Zurich – that was definitely one of our favorite moments of 2019.

2020 will be even treeier

Anyone who thinks that we will now reminisce forever is seriously mistaken. Quite the opposite: We are full of energy and are looking forward to an even brighter 2020. We are also going full throttle in the new year. There are many new products waiting for you and we have exciting projects planned.
