Analysing the environmental impact of Artknit’s garments.

To bring the greatest possible value to its customers and to the planet.

The brand wanted to understand the impact associated with each stage of its value chain.

Since its beginnings in 2018, Artknit has defined itself as a contemporary knitwear brand. Its philosophy is based on producing what is necessary and increasing the durability of its garments. It uses its access to high-quality materials to bring the greatest possible value to its customers and the planet.

The Italian brand was created under the principles of innovation and sustainability with the mission of “buying less, but buying better”.  They know that there can be no shortcuts if you want to do things right, which is why they carefully select their materials and suppliers.

On the journey to design products that have less impact, are more durable, and thus have greater value, the brand wanted to explore the impact associated with each stage of its value chain.

Together with Dcycle, it has analysed the materials, processes, and lifecycle stages of its products until their sale, evaluating the main impact categories associated with the textile industry: climate change, water consumption, fossil fuels, and eutrophication.

Artknit has thus been able to identify where it needs to focus its efforts in order to continue growing in value. Thanks to this information, the firm can design future collections knowing the impact associated with its products.

You can’t improve what you don’t measure, and Artknit is taking the necessary steps to become a leading sustainability brand in Italy. Find out more about what is behind Artknit’s value chain in the following link.
