Materials ARKET’s ambition is to raise the quality of everyday design and to make well-considered, beautifully-made products accessible to more people. Here we aim to list our our favourite materials.
Responsible Wool Standard (RWS)
Responsible wool guarantees animal welfare and promotes environmental care on the farms, as well as a progressive and more sustainable use of the land.
Recycled polyester is made from post-consumer PET derived from plastic bottles. Strong, durable and moisture-resistant, it holds the same properties as conventional polyester.
Our cashmere products are made using a special blend of recycled cashmere and responsible merino wool, which has a considerably lower environmental impact compared with conventional cashmere.
Our collection of lightweight down-padded outerwear and accessories, offering superior natural warmth from reclaimed materials.
Yak is a superfine luxury fibre that is warmer and softer than merino wool and more breathable than cashmere.
A high-tech and high-performance material made from nylon waste, such as discarded fishnets and textile leftovers.
Alpaca is an airy and lightweight fibre with surprising strength and elasticity. It is especially suited to sensitive skin due to its smooth surface and lack of lanolin oil.
