BLACK FRIDAY is So 2020. Let's Evolve and Put An End to Disposable Fashion.

Change the Way You Think. Change the Way You Shop

The average Australian landfills 23kg of textiles per year and wears only around 33% of their wardrobe. Why? Because it’s really, really hard to find clothes you love – so when you finally do, they’re the only things you want to wear. 

Arnsdorf has partnered with Black Fridye, a project conceived by Citizen Wolf that makes it incredibly simple to love your favourite clothes longer by overdyeing them black.

Black Fridye will redye any garment by any brand to give it a second life, offering an incredibly simple, affordable and powerful way for individuals to reduce their carbon footprint and help save the planet.

Last year Black Fridye saved over 594,000L of water by redyeing garments compared to virgin clothing production which is approximately 9 backyard swimming pools. This year we’re aiming to save 8 million litres, or enough to fill 3 Olympic swimming pools!

Naturally, we'd love you to shop something new from Arnsdorf that you need and/or love but also consider dyeing something rather than jumping on the sale bandwagon.

HOW DO WE DO FRIDYE?

Black Fridye is a strictly time-limited event with orders open for one week only starting November 23.
Prices start from only $19 for tops, $29 for jeans and $39 for jackets (exc. shipping) which is up to 70% off regular dyehouse pricing.
