Let the fun begin….

Harkel is a vibrant fashion brand, bringing something bold and exciting to your wardrobe.

Harkel was born out of a desire for something different and something fun. We love everything sustainable, so we only use high-quality organic cotton and are PETA and vegan approved. Despite the deluge of brands and mountains of clothes on offer, we weren’t finding pieces that made us excited; clothes with that something special about them.

At Harkel we believe in cat puns, retro designs, loud colours and pizza parties.

Seeing the same old perennials in the stores year after year, brown for autumn, pastels for summer, we felt like there was something missing and a gap in the market. Harkel emerged to bring a new sense of fun and vitality into the mix! We had always been admirers of vintage and retro clothing but didn’t want it to feel like dressing up. Taking elements of vintage style, but translating it in a much more wearable, accessible and modern way, we found a new direction.

Harkel is certainly not a vintage brand, but we take inspiration from flattering classic shapes and details, then combine them with bespoke prints, rich colours and unexpected details for a very wearable look that is full of character and makes heads turn, for the multi-faceted woman of today.

We are inspired by and design for, girls and women who love the fun of fashion. Who aren’t interested in slavishly following trends but celebrate individuality. Who want to stand out in style, and are looking for unique and quirky looks to match their playful personalities.

Love Harkel because….

We do not follow trends, instead creating a defined ‘Harkel’ aesthetic, which begins with a vintage influence, and is showered in colour and fun to create an all-inclusive range, with a style that caters to everyone, through the different aspects of femininity and character – from girly and elegant, to preppy and quirky, with a whole host in between!

We’re Organic & Vegan Friendly

Our journey to becoming sustainable.

Wear and care!

Right from the start, Harkel has been about offering vibrant and fun fashion using high quality fabrics. With more of the Harkel community asking for a more sustainable offering, we’ve listened and have taking action!

Going forward, sustainability will be part of everything that we do. A lot of brands throw the word “sustainable” around, so we believe it’s important to be straight forward with our new policies. In short, all of our new styles are 100% certified organic cotton and 100% bottle recycled polyester; however, most of our items will be 100% organic cotton and everything will be PETA vegan approved.

What does this mean for future Harkel styles? Our new policy came into action (March 2021), our old Harkel styles are no longer for sale as these are not in line with our new policy. Instead, we have a new range of fun and colourful styles that are organic, recycled and vegan friendly. Initially, our range will consist of fun tees, sweatshirts and hoodies; all of which will have fun and quirky prints and embroidered designs. We are currently in discussion with new dress factories that share our new sustainability vision, this means that temporarily, we will not be selling dresses until we have found the perfect supplier to work with.

Sustainability comes in a lot of different forms, so we’ve outlined below to show you the journey that our new organic and vegan styles will go through. This includes no more products sourced from China which are commonly poor quality or shrink; meaning we only use the best quality and certified fabrics! Anybody involved in making fun Harkel styles are treated fairly in a safe and hygienic environment whilst being paid more than the average wage! Plus, no flying in items from overseas which pollutes the planet; all of our styles are finished in the UK!

Now that we’ve made the big change to becoming a more sustainable and ethical brand, we are excited to continue our move to a more sustainable future.

We will continue to work with suppliers to offer a wider range of organic, recycled and vegan friendly styles that are all in line with our colour confidence ethos. We will constantly be looking at ways to develop our policy and create a better place for our employees to work and a more eco friendly product for our amazing Harkel Community.
