CLOSED Giveaway: Choice of Bag from Ark Clothes

About: Ark Clothes

What is Ark?
Ark is a retro inspired clothing and accessory line that aims at global domination and the enslavement of all those who don’t agree with our aesthetic and philosophy! Ark Industries began back in the dark ages, somewhere around 1995. Its founder, appropriately named, Noah’s, first foray into the clothing business was buying and selling second hand/vintage clothing while he was still a poverty stricken university student. Ark’s first products were clothing made from second hand fabric and also re-worked vintage clothing. From this experience, Ark developed its retro/vintage aesthetic which we have tried to maintain throughout the years.

The Aesthetics of Ark
We are inspired by the past and look towards past decades for our colors, graphics and even materials. Mind you, who doesn’t? We just try and do it better then the others. I guess we lean more towards the 70’s but lately have even had to embrace the 80’s and to our horror, we may even have to give the 90’s a chance (although what were they good for except long, greasy hair and flannel shirts- the horror). We try to get ideas and inspiration from all that was cool in the past and then put a bit of a twist on it, to give it a unique flavour. Some of our products you can even eat, they taste so good.


Ark Philosophy
Our philosophy or motto is that, we’re all in the same boat. This means we all inhabit this planet together. We are all fighting the forces of evil. We all want to look good while doing so. Actually, in all seriousness we would like to try and have fun and make cool products which people like and last long enough to, if not give to their children, then maybe to their not so cool friends when they are done with them. We like to work with people we like who are not jerks and we would like to try to be as environmentally and morally aware, as possible - yes we are aware the vinyl used to make our bags comes from oil..... we are very sorry about this!!. We try to balance our use of the dreaded crude by also creating products, wherever possible, from re-cycled materials. And lastly we aim to make things that people will cry over and steal money from their mother’s purses to buy


(we live in eternal hope!)

This Site ROCKS!!! I am in love with the retro styles this site has going on! There are many different items to choose from on this website, but the wallets themselves are great!!! When I received the Monster Wallet my husband and my 8 year old son started argueing over who was going to use it. The color combo of teal and brown go great together and really make the wallet stand out. There are many different holders within the wallet to seperate your money, cards, ect. It's like playing the game "I spy.... " when looking at the different monsters on the wallet.
