All splendid fashion items, including shirts comfortable to wear and bright colored one-piece dresses, are made up of the creativity of humans and the identity of the earth. Various ideas that humans come up with in their wholesome and cultural lives are embodied in goods made with the blessings and resources of the earth. Natural materials will surely boost our excitement in each season, and the miraculous designs by humans will also continue to uplift us.

But now, with climate change and environmental crisis becoming apparently serious and society changing at a dizzying pace, the threat to these splendid fashion items and rich, fulfilling lives is growing. We may have been using too much of the earth’s resources over the past few decades, or we might have sacrificed “universal affluence” without realizing it in the process of our pursuit of easy and prosperous lives. Yes, it’s us.

UNITED ARROWS LTD. loves cultural happiness that is brought about by people and the places they are from. Although there are still uncertainties regarding the realization of a sustainable society, we hope that we can protect the happiness of the earth through the activities of SARROWS together with you as people who are living in the same era.
