As a small, sustainable brand, we have - proudly - never participated in Black Friday - and won’t do so this year.
At arkitaip, we believe in the longevity and timelessness of our pieces and are therefore skipping the discount frenzy as we want to encourage you to think twice before you buy.
The answer is simple. If we continue to think of clothing as short-term, disposable goods rather than long-term investments, we are collectively contributing to wasteful consumption patterns that will inevitably lead us towards drastic climate change.
Having said that, we know that not all of us have the choice to opt for sustainably-made clothing due to its higher price tag which results from its more ethical supply chain - but if you do, we invite you to slow down and think twice before you buy.
