Flattering wide-leg trousers with a high-rise waist.
The Clara High-Rise Flared Trousers in Black Herringbone are a pair of wide-leg pants cut from 100% Austrian, thick linen. They feature a subtle herringbone pattern and sit high at the waist. The fabric’s thickness makes them perfect for the colder days of the year.
Made of 100% Italian, MASTERS OF LINEN®-certified denim linen. Due to linen’s temperature-regulating features, these trousers can be worn in temperatures ranging from 10-25 degrees.
Designed in London and responsibly crafted in Portugal.

- About the Brand
About the Brand
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.
- Fit & Care
Fit & Care
The trousers feature a side zip and run slightly small. Model is 172cm tall and is wearing a size S.
Treat your linen piece with care and wash it preferably by hand.
When machine-washing it, wash it at max. 30° and on a gentle wash cycle (400-600 RPM) to protect the garment's fibers.
Use a mild and preferably organic detergent to best preserve the piece's colour and fit.
Lay it flat to dry - tumble drying is bad for the environment anyways.
