Arpe is a long family tradition that began many decades ago with the bi-grandparents Gallemí. Without knowing it, his legacy would continue for many years.
And it was about 30 years ago when the brothers Joan and Montse Pera took over and reimagined the company. The fusion of innovation, creativity and sustainability has made us what we are today: a small family business of 20 incredible people.
We want our products to be intimately connected with the place, the origin and the people behind them. That's why we do things ourselves. We are artisans from head to toe and each product is created with great care and love for our team. While one cuts the fabric, the other prints the design and the next sews the edges. A combination of manual and team work that makes each product unique and imperfect, like no other.
Being sustainable should not even be questioned. All our products are eco-designed under the criteria of the circular economy and with 100% renewable energy (in fact, we have just installed solar panels in our factory!). We look for the most optimal measures and cut the appropriate fabric to generate the least amount of waste. We also make sure that our products are recycled and recyclable, most of them monomaterials, to make it easier. And we treat our packaging in the same way: the less quantity and the more recycled, the better.
