We are driven by the mission to create ethically- and environmentally responsible garments, which are timeless and made to last. We fully oversee our supply chain, putting the highest ecological and social standards at the core of our work.
We specialise in linen due to its environmentally-friendly features (read more here) and because it naturally prospers in Europe allowing for a smaller carbon footprint due to shorter transportation routes.
Our garments are carefully put together by a small of Portuguese artisans in Porto. By solely working with European small-scale suppliers, we can guarantee fair wages and good working conditions.
We're trying to minimise our environmental impact wherever we can: from using hang tags & business cards made of recycled cotton T-shirts and organic-cotton care labels, to turning fabric leftovers into cute scrunchies). Furthermore, we've eliminated plastic* from our supply chain and shipping journeys from the beginning on.
* We previously sent out our pieces in 100% recycled polyester bag which we've now replaced with paper bags.
We solely work with 100% sustainably-grown- and woven, European linen. All our linens are certified with theGlobal Organic Textile Standard- and the Masters of Linen-mark, ensuring that the fabrics we're using are of the highest ecological and social standards.
By soley working with European fabrics, we aim to keep our garments’ carbon footprint as low as possible due to shorter transportation routes between our mills and our sewing studio in Portugal.
Linen has anti-bacterial and temperature-regulating features, keeping you cool in summer and cozy in cooler temperatures and make it the perfect companion for those who have sensitive skin. Read more about why we love linen here.
Although, we do our best to create garments which are made to last, we need you to take good care of them. Oh, and did you know that by caring for your clothes, you’re actively reducing your carbon footprint? We thought that’s a fact worth sharing with you.
Linen becomes softer after each wash - wash it on low temperatures (max. 30 degrees) with a mild and preferably organic detergent to best preserve the garment's colour and fit. Wash your arkitaip-piece on a gentle machine spinning cycle to protect its fibres. Lay flat to dry - tumble drying is bad for the environment anyways ...
