If you are a socially conscious consumer on the hunt for a fashion forward but ultimately sustainable clothing line, Arkins is definitely worth looking into. Not merely satisfied with locally sourced materials, the entire collection is made in Manhattan. The emerging designer focuses on environmentally friendly womenswear -- a refreshing alternative to the 97% of clothing produced internationally.
With its debut collection having just launched in February 2014, the sustainable clothing line is already turning heads as it was chosen to showcase at ENK Coterie's TMRW. Fabrics found in the new Spring 2015 line include cotton, hemp, tencel and silk. The eco aspect of Arkins in addition to their head-turning minimalist style shows the brand has staying power.
