Our ultimate goal is to promote a sustainable lifestyle and encourage the world to “wear what U want!”
What is the meaning of “U ENVI”?
First, it is all about YOU feeling like the best version of yourself. Hence the “U”. Also meaning many things including unique, upcycle, unisex, universe, and university. Envi - short for "environment". Altogether U ENVI is a play on words meaning “you envy” whoever is wearing U ENVI!
What are your sustainable practices?
Everything we create is sustainable. We ensure this by only working with second-hand materials and recycled materials. Our packaging is entirely recycled, recyclable, compostable, and eco-friendly. As an effort to be as sustainable as possible, we encourage you to provide your own garment you no longer wear when creating a custom. Upcycle that wardrobe!

Everything we make is completely unique and different from anything you can find in stores. We are proud to be different and we want U to embrace your differences as well.
