Why waste new resources when there are plenty of them
kicking around for reuse?
At Arkworks, we create handmade products from original
vintage garments, recut and reborn into a one of a kind piece.
Our work reflects our desire to come up with designs that
are retro and vintage inspired, yet with a modern update.
However, if we really get the creative urge and can’t find
any suitable reusable material, we do occasionally cheat and
combine them with a new substitute. So we aren’t always
good, but we do always try to be!
We mainly use recycled leather from old jackets. Yes, there are
lots of old and heinously designed leather jackets from the past,
when looking like a pimp was trendy. So, we have found where
all those guys have buried them and given them a second life as
a backpack, duffle bag or some other inspiring design.
Our team of designers and buyers source and meticulously
handpick vintage dresses that your grandma would have worn
and turn them into something much more easy on the eyes
and, dare we say, slightly more fashionable (unless you had an
especially stylish grannie, in which case apologies to her!)
Every piece is unique, has a history and offers us the
chance to produce exclusive and limited collections.
We hope you will love our products as much as we loved
creating them!
