RESPONSIBLE WOOL STANDARD (RWS)

Materials Responsible wool guarantees animal welfare and promotes environmental care on the farms, as well as a progressive and more sustainable use of the land.

Our merino wool comes from responsible and sustainably minded farms in Uruguay and Australia. From 2018, all of the merino wool used in ARKET products are certified to the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS), which makes it possible to trace the material all the way back to the farm. The goals of the RWS are to protect the sheep that supply the wool and the land on which they graze. Responsible means that animal welfare is always considered and respected; it also means environmental care on the farms and a progressive, more sustainable use of the land. The animals are guaranteed a healthy life and provided with their essential freedoms, including the freedom to express their normal behaviour, freedom from hunger, thirst, fear and distress, and freedom from pain or discomfort. The RWS is an independent, voluntary program ensuring that the wool we use comes from certified responsible farms, and that it is properly handled and identified through the entire production process. It provides a universal reference tool for us and the suppliers we work with, committing everyone involved in the making of our products to the same high standards. Ultimately, it allows customers to be confident that what they buy is made in a truly responsible way.

The grid is an essential element of our visual identity. It represents the notion of the archive and is used to organise and display information ranging from the names of plants to fabric weights and different types of materials used in our collections. These nine squares symbolise the separate parts that together form our world, and they are also the areas where we strive to make a difference.
