Arnka Shirt

The Arnka Shirt is a cropped-length shirt with a long batwing sleeve. The sleeve also has a wide sleeve cuff with a button and buttonhole. The button-through shirt has a concealed button placket and a shirt collar with slightly exaggerated collar peaks. Crafted from a mid-weight organic cotton, the shirt feels polished and structured, sitting away from the body.

100% Organic Cotton

This twill weave fabric features a subtle structure, while crafted from 100% organically-grown cotton. Organic cotton is grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers or hazardous pesticides, which protects biodiversity and waterways and builds and maintains soil fertility. Cotton has a cool, breathable finish making it perfect for transeasonal, versatile pieces.

This style was made in China through production agent Eastlink Sales, established in 2006 by Mrs Crystal Wu. Crystal has a great team based in Shanghai who work with us to manage our development and production. They also act as the go between with the factory where our garments are made, Yao Fa Garment Factory. They are actively assisting us with communication between fibre producers and mills to help us source materials that meet our ELK Preferred Material guidelines.

Yao Fa Garment Factory are a member of Sedex and have undergone a SMETA social compliance audit.
