The story behind our name

Posted by Lea Wieser on

You're wondering why arkitaip?

arkitaip is the phonetic spelling of the word “archetype” and reflects what we stand for.

While an archetype is something that is considered to be a good example of something from which other things are copied from, we aim to inspire those wearing arkitaip to live, breathe and love a conscious life, motivating others to follow their journey.

So, don’t worry about any funky pronunciations: archetype =ˈɑːrkɪtaɪp/ = arkitaip - as simple as that. 

As a conscious brand, we pledge to act responsibly in everything we do, always opting for the most sustainable option accessible - and if we cannot find it, we endeavour to look for a solution. 

By doing so, we hope to set an example of how to responsibly create high-quality pieces, which are as equally beautiful as ecologically friendly.

Moving forward, we wish to raise awareness for the detrimental effects the garment industry has on the environment by hosting talks, workshops and events, ultimately finding different approaches to living a more examined life.  


Any ideas on how to make the world a better place? Get in touch and let's chat.
