our story

archetype: /ˈɑːrkɪtaɪp/

Founded in 2018 by mother-daughter duo Michi and Lea Wieser, arkitaip was born out of the idea to provide women with a wardrobe which is 

made to last. 


Cultivated on the principles of laissez-faire elegance, respect for our planet, and functionality, their creations are designed for those who confidently embrace 

their uniqueness.


Handcrafted in Europe - Michi hand makes their crochet range - and cut from the highest quality linen, a durable and eco-conscious material, their pieces are made in anticipation that they'll one day be passed on from generation to generation.


With a strong focus on an ethical supply chain and the preservation of artisanal skills, the duo wants to foster the relationship between garment and wearer, opening up the dialogue about a more conscious consumption behaviour.


Their mission is to inspire those wearing arkitaip to live and breathe 

more conscious life.
