ARCHIVE


Explore our world

The notion of the archive is one of ARKET’s central themes and runs as a common thread through the brand. It represents the long-lasting nature of our collections, an extensive library of design history and vintage samples, our ideal of transparency, as well as the inspiration for and name given to our in-store shelving system. The digital ARKET / ARCHIVE captures research, inspiration, and past projects, and forms the collective story of who we are.

A MORE BEAUTIFUL EVERYDAY LIFE

Design With special attention to sustainable practices, ARKET continues to build on the Nordic tradition of functional beauty and the mission to enhance life through well-designed everyday things. The concept of everyday beauty was a major influence on the Nordic modernist movement in the mid-20th century – and one of the starting points for developing the ARKET brand.

Formulated in 1919 by Swedish art historian Gregor Paulsson, ‘Vackrare vardagsvara’ – More beautiful everyday things – became the slogan for a new democratic approach that aimed to bridge the worlds of arts, crafts, and functional form to produce affordable and widely accessible items for everyday use. In the Nordic countries, this ambition was associated with a new ideal of beauty which favoured clean lines, a neutral colour palette and solid materials inspired by nature and the northern climate. Above all, it made functionality and durability the basis for good design.

About KNOWLEDGE § Search

KNOWLEDGE

A LIBRARY OF RESEARCH AND INSPIRATION

Knowledge To create collections with a longer life, we invest time in their development. It can be in the form of designing custom yarns and new materials or studying archival designs to understand their original idea. By sharing as much of this information as we can, we aim to promote an appreciation for the craft and resources that go into making a product.

Archive Knowledge

TAKING RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE IMPACT WE HAVE

Environment Fashion is one of the world’s most resource-intensive industries, with a large climate footprint, but for many of us working at ARKET, it is precisely the ability to be part of the progress and make contributions towards a more circular economy that motivates us to do what we do.

Sustainability Fact Sheet

About 70 percent of a garment’s environmental footprint comes from the production phase – before it reaches the customer.

Meet our production manager
'It is a strong driving force for me personally; to be able to shape and influence change'. says ARKET's production manager Sofia Snöborgs.

Renting clothing

A selection of ARKET children’s products from current and previous collections are available for rent through our partner Circos.

Recycle with ARKET
Textiles should never be thrown away. A lot of unwanted clothes end up in landfills today even though they could still be used as a valuable resource.
