We care about our people and the world we are fortunate enough to live in, striving to do everything as ethically and sustainably as possible, as well as ensuring there is ongoing work for our talented artists and makers.

The Ark Clothing Co. makes clothes under The Ark brand. Every piece of clothing that is branded The Ark is 100% Australian made and Ethically Accredited by Ethical Clothing Australia.

Nikel + Sole knitwear and accessories are designed in our Melbourne studio and made globally, due to the niche skills and technologies required to produce these pieces. We work with makers who understand our passion for integrity, creativity and quality.

Over the years, we have developed strong and honest relationships with our Australian and global suppliers and manufacturers, enabling growth of their businesses alongside ours.

We embrace fabrics and technologies with a light ecological footprint like our signature whisper fabric (dyed with air instead of water) and have introduced organic cotton into our range. Making 100% of The Ark Clothing Co. ranges locally is our most significant contribution to carbon reduction, but our commitment to increased sustainability is ongoing. We acknowledge there is more work to be done.
