NUET is a collaborative platform run by the Scandinavian duo Nora Marie Vatland and Martine A. Hess. The website was founded in September 2015, and the team is currently based in Norway. It is a space formed by creatives from all over the world that are sharing their art, experiences, thoughts, dreams and inspirations. They aim to build an empowering community by writing about everything from activism and spirituality, to mental health and art.

Besides a shared passion for writing, they felt like there were certain topics like eco-friendly fashion, human rights, sustainable swaps and interviews with up and coming artists etc, that deserved more attention in the media. The webiste is definitely a place where they can exress themselves, and use their voice to create positive change. Collaborations, interviews, and interacting with the readers and submitters is for sure their favorite part of it all!

Now, over to the name; "Nuet" is a Norwegian word that translates to "the present moment". To us, this word has a double meaning. It reminds ut to be present in life, but at the same time be conscious to make the future for those who come after us the best it can be. We want to honor the moment, and the power of each present and passing moment. In 5 minutes you can book a one-way ticket. In 4 minutes you can lose interest in a conversation. In 3 minutes you can listen to someone's heart beat 300 times. In two minutes you can listen to a song. In one minute you can call someone and leave a voice mail. Right now you can change your life completly.

Meet the team:

Nora Marie Co-founder):

Briefly tell something about yourself:

18 years old. Consider myself an amateur writer that is inspired mostly by peoples emotions and battles. My love for the environment is deep rooted inside me, and I will always try to become more sustainable in everything I do.

Zodiac sign?

Aquarius. A horrible lier, independent and not afraid to make mistakes.

Plans for the future:

Hopefully becoming a yoga instructor within the next two years, study either journalism or documentary photography. I have aspirations about being fluent in Spanish, ASL, join the van life community and eventually create a tiny house. My goal is to live simply, maybe move to Mexico, Barcelona, Australia or somewhere in Africa for a while in order to truly get back to the basics. 

Martine (Co-founder):

Briefly tell something about yourself:

17 years old. Writing to me is a way of processing and exploring, and it usually centers around sustainable living, art and mental wellbeing, as those are all topics that I hold close to heart. Other than that I love to get creative, practice yoga and shoot analog photography.

Zodiac sign?

Scorpio. Definitely stubborn, independent and passionate. 

Plans for the future:

My dream is to be a correspondent somewhere in the middle east, and tell stories that have the power to leave a mark. I'm planning on studying journalism in London and hopefully get the opportunity to explore the world, its fascinating cultures and incredible minds, through my job. I have a lot of dreams, but right now I’m focusing on living my life as consciously as possible.

Mayowa (Book club):

Every other month, Mayowa will do a book club. Follow us on ig (@itsnuet) to stay up to date on which books she's picked at the beginning of the month, ask questions and pay attention to the highlights. At the end of the month she'll write a review that will be published on

Something you can't live without:

Something I can’t live without is my phone. Basic I know but true...

Briefly tell something about yourself:

I’m a self-described phenomenal Nigerian Woman. I’m passionate about literature by people of colour and I’m equally passionate about sharing the beautiful literature I read on Instagram. When I’m not reading, I’m probably talking about books, doing yoga, watching TV (my secret love) and drinking copious amounts of tea. I just graduated from the University of Edinburgh and studied History and Politics. From October, I start the next phase of my life which is a Masters in African Studies. I’m sure it’ll be ridiculously demanding but I’m up for the challenge!

Zodiac sign?

I’m a Gemini but I’m not into zodiac signs so I’d rather not have to include traits mostly because I don’t know them well or believe in them.

Adri (WRITER):


Briefly tell something about yourself:

16 years old. I love writing, photography and film, and hope to share stories that resonate with people. You can find me at the movies, dancing to 50s music or trying to find an adventure.

Zodiac sign?

Virgo. I'm not one to believe in astrology, but I am analytical, shy, loyal and attentive to detail.


Something you can't live without:

I can't live without... excitement. I feel like I'm always hyped up for something, wether it's a big project, a friend's birthday or just experimenting with some fancy recipe I found online. Apart from that, I try to take the Buddhist route and think of everything as transient. "When I understand the glass is already broken, every moment with it is precious." (–Achaan Cha)

Nuet wear:

Second hand + vintage

August 30 marks the day that our online vintage store finally opened. Nuet wear is a way for us to be a part of the slow fashion movement, at the same time as connecting with all of you - the beautiful minds within this community. One of the many things we love about second hand clothing, is the fact that each item is telling a different story, and therefore gives you the opportunity of express oneself in a different way than while wearing mass-produced clothing. 

This is true style, this is true self-expression; it is unique, ethical & sustainable.

Wear the pieces with fierceness, boldness and softness. Feel free to read more about our vision here.
