We are origin. We are Arpe.
WE HAVE BEEN CREATING AND MANUFACTURING GIFTS FOR THREE DECADES
ORIGIN & IN-HOUSE PRODUCTION
In 1965, Joan Pera, the father of the two current CEOs, started a humble textile business that, without him even knowing, would become a life-long family tradition. The two kids were born and raised within the textile world, learning all about the techniques, materials and processes, and that shaped their DNA.
Years after, their eyes sparkled when they came across digital printing, seeing a whole world of possibilities in it. Thus, they combined their contrasting personalities, the analyst and the creative, and dove into the challenge. And what a great challenge. They were the first in the country to use and promote digital printing and to launch the first collection of textile promotional items with sustainable certification. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it.
TRADITION & INNOVATION
Time went by and, always eager to innovate and grow, the pandemic arrived and they knew it was time to take on another challenge. Digitalization was inevitable, digitalization was the future, and they wanted to be a part of it. They knew they were not only creating sustainable promotional textile products but also promoting a lifestyle. A conscious, respectful and sustainable way of seeing, living and treating the world and the people in it. And here is when Arpe Shop came to life.
There are ways to consume without consuming ourselves, and that’s what the future has to look like.
At Arpe, we strive to promote conscious and local consumption, as well as 360 sustainability. This is why we create, produce and manufacture locally. We want to maintain our textile experience acquired generation after generation, guarantee the quality of the processes and value the manual work. Our products are intimately connected to the place, the origin and the people behind them. And that’s what makes them special.
We have been creating and manufacturing unique gifts for three decades and, most importantly, rooting for a change. And we want you to be a part of it.
CHOOSE ARPE. CHOOSE ORIGIN, TRADITION, AUTENTICITY AND HUMANITY.
