Founded in 2015, Arcana seeks to imbue modern fashion with the echoes of those who came before. Arcana strives to alter our consumption of fashion by bringing the focus back to quality, art and soul. Each piece is created using eco-friendly and sustainably-sourced materials. Global textiles are sourced from artisans practicing their indigenous craft, thereby sustaining and preserving the world's unique cultural expressions. By combining textiles from far-flung destinations, Arcana posits a vision of a global identity that is enriched by its variety, rather than its homogeny.
Each garment, therefore, has its own story. The story of the once at-risk woman in Maheshwar supporting her children by learning the weaving technique of her grandmothers. The story of the vibrantly-hued silk hand-dyed in Japan with such care. Reimagined in modern, wearable pieces, a vestige of the past is made singular and precious. By weaving these stories together, Arcana creates heirlooms - pieces to make us remember, pieces to connect us, pieces to treasure. Arcana reminds us of what we inherit and what we leave for the world to come.
