BEHIND THE BRAND
Born from the idea that accessorizing makes any outfit, ROARKE was founded in 2009. Over the years we have listened to our customers and the concept has developed that accessorizing should be ACCESSIBLE! After selling to high end retailers across the world, including Colette in Paris, Ikram in Chicago, Harvey Nichols in London and Takashimaya in Japan... to name a few, we have decided that the final customer, that’s YOU, is the most important. So what does this mean?
-DIRECT TO CONSUMER - we are cutting out the middle men which in turn means lower prices! YAY! We've been inspired by some of the great new brands out there, and it's all about RADICAL TRANSPARENCY... if you have a question about how much something costs to make and what goes in to each piece, please do not hesitate.
-FREQUENT NEW STYLES - we will be rolling out new styles every month, sometimes even every WEEK, instead of every season, so be sure to stay tuned in and sign up for our newsletter here if you haven't already.
- MEET THE BEADERS- Be sure to follow us on instagram, we'll be posting photos and stories of our beaders and the process that goes in to making our pieces @roarkenyc #MeetTheMakers
- GIVE BACK - All of our pieces are hand made around the world - some domestic, some internationally. With each piece you purchase, you will also be giving back to the community who helped make this piece-15% of the cost of the good, will be donated to an orphanage in the area it was produced. Children are the future so lets help the next generation the best we can.
-SPREAD THE WORD - we love collaborating with influencers and people who love to accessorize. We are always looking for new and innovative ways to spread the word about our pieces. Interested? Just shoot us an email, we're always open to new ideas.
Join us in our mission, and help us change with the times by letting us know what you would like to see here in our ideas box. We hope you enjoy your new accessible ROARKE pieces, we can’t wait to see how they look on you! Tag us #ROARKEnyc or join the #ROARKEtribe.
