Dagmar strives to be at the forefront in both the search and use of new environmentally friendly fabrics. Certified viscose, organic cotton, friendly fur, mulesing-free merino wool, recycled polyester, chrome-free leather, lyocell fibers and eco-regenerated cashmere are some of the materials featured in current collections.
Through The 7 Rules of GANT, the brand continues on its Never Stop Learning journey by addressing seven aspects that contributes to an increasingly circular fashion economy: Rent, Reuse, Refresh, Remake, Repair, Regive and Recycle.
Jade Cropper, a Beckmans College of Design alumni, designs with sustainability and the preservation of traditional craft techniques in mind. Her creative interest comes from her grandfather who was an African American artist from Harlem, New York. Jades inspiration for the silhouettes comes from her grandmothers love of eccentric feminine style.
Arket aims to offer collections designed to be used and loved for a long time. They use a lot of sustainable materials (albeit not only).
