Texas-born designer Arielle launched her eponymous label in 2018 after a series of design gigs at several major ready-to-wear brands which left her disenchanted with the ethics of the fashion industry. Her brand reflects her personal values: ARIELLE is committed to organic, recycled and zero-waste fabrics, local manufacturing, fair-trade operations and plastic-free packaging & production.
The company sources all materials with great care and responsibility, enforcing supply-chain transparency, human rights standards and environmental protection. They work to remain on cutting edge of sustainability and apply new solutions as they become available.
An example of their commitment to sustainability is their partnering with a company in Italy that has been recycling fibers since 1878. They collect unwanted blankets, sweaters and fabric scraps, sort them by color, shred them and then run through a mechanical blending process to render any desired color outcome without the need of any additional dye, water or chemicals. The reclaimed materials apply their original color to the new material!
A strong believer in breaking free from plastics, the company even offers a plastic-free self-reliance kit which includes everything you need to move through your day without single-use plastics.
