Care For your basics

Sustainability is at the core of ARKET, naturally incorporated in all of our processes. One of the greatest things we can do to reduce our environmental footprint is to make our garments last longer by caring for them and thereby elongate their lifespan.

It is a given that garments you wear closest to your body on an everyday basis need to be washed regularly but by doing this in a more conscious way you can reduce the effect on the environment.
Don’t wash your T-shirts more often than necessary. Spot-treating and steaming T-shirts is a great alternative to washing. In between washes, air to regain a fresh feeling or use garment refresher spray.
Wash all basics at the lowest temperature and the shortest cycle possible to save water and use a natural, biodegradable liquid rinse. Shake it to minimise wrinkles and hang or lay flat to air-dry.

Recycled cashmere

As autumn comes, it’s time to turn to classic knits. Blended with RWS-certified merino wool for durability and strength, our recycled cashmere gives the luxurious feel and natural warmth of conventional cashmere, but with a lighter footprint on the planet.



Together with ARKET’s new bread supplier – BAK, we are on a mission to showcase that the use of organic heritage crops and manual techniques not only makes sense from a sustainability perspective, but also because the final product simply tastes and feels better.

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.
