Artifex is a Romanian apparel manufacturer known for top-quality garments and its use of top-of-the-line equipment. The fully renovated factory was founded in 2005 after a Swiss couture brand merged with a local Romanian factory. Based in Foscani – on the shores of the Milcov River – Artifex’s home city has a rich textile tradition. About 1,400 employees enjoy great working conditions, producing women’s jackets, top skirts, pants and dresses for ARKET, as well as children’s blazers and trousers.
Mélange yarns are made with top-dyed fibres of different shades, spun
together, and are used to create heathered and luminous knitted fabrics.
From the French word meaning ‘mixture’ or ‘medley’, the process of creating mélanges has a smaller impact on the environment than dyeing a finished cloth.
Dyeing and blending fibres before spinning saves water and energy, reduces emissions and creates subtle variations that result in a much deeper, richer colour.
