Founded in 2018 by mother-daughter duo Michi and Lea Wieser, Arkitaip was born out of the desire to create timeless, effortless, and durable garments without hurting the planet. This began with the hunt for the ‘perfect fabric’, which had to be natural, biodegradable, have a low environmental impact and be entirely sourceable from Europe to minimise the carbon footprint. MASTERS OF LINEN®-certified linen ticked all of these boxes and also came with a zero-waste production process and OEKO-TEX® 100 Standard-Label, making it the clear winner. With a strong focus on an ethical supply chain and the preservation of artisanal skills (Michi hand-makes their crochet range), the duo wants to foster the relationship between garment and wearer, opening up the dialogue about a more conscious consumption behaviour.
WHY WE LIKE IT:
- Timeless casual-chic style
- All pieces are made from 100% certified linen
- No harmful chemicals are used in the production
