Welcome! Fall/ Winter arrivals are here! Visit us in Winooski, Wednesday to Saturday 11-7 and Sunday 11-5
ARQ is a female-founded/female-owned independent clothing company with an emphasis on making garments that encourage people to relish the mundane, intimate, ordinary pleasures in life –underwear and clothes for cooking at home, picnicking in the sun, weeding, emailing, grocery shopping, painting, and napping (preferably with someone you love).
Garments are sewn in the U.S. from certified organic, recycled, and/or deadstock materials. Bodies, postmodern interiors, details from Italian renaissance paintings, natural plant and animal fibers, local seasonal produce, and old-world garment craftsmanship, among others, inform owner/designer Abigail Quist's process. ARQ's small but mighty team has gathered around these shared obsessions and around a need to align all our decisions, big and small, with shared values.
