What is Natsu?

Natsu is a student brand that focuses on the creation of sustainable clothing and inclusive community based events for students and young people. The brand emphasises working with local businesses, student designers and student artists for its projects, whilst actively reinvesting a portion of its profits into Manchester charities and community based initiatives.

What does the name mean?

The name Natsu is based on the founders middle name. Nat, namely after their Indian Grandad who is called Natwarlal, and Sufraz, after their other Mauritian Grandad who’s surname was originally meant to be Safraz, but was changed to Sufraz after a birth certificate error.

What are the Natsu values?

Natsu’s three main beliefs are sustainability, inclusivity and community. Since the brand began back in 2019, it has forged a path for students and young people to become a part of an ever-growing community. The brand has had a lasting impact in Manchester with various media outlets covering its progression.

Robbie Beale - Activities & Culture Officer UMSU: “Natsu has been a melting pot for creative students to come together, support causes and emerging talent, and has built a community which has spanned years of students, even beyond graduation. It's the path for a new generation of students wanting to build communities of their own in a post-covid world.”
