The word Arigato means “thank you” in Japanese. For the label’s Swedish founders Albin Johansson and Max Svärdh, including it in the brand name was their way of showing their appreciation of Japanese minimalism. Their collections includes high-quality sneakers, all of which are hand-made in Europe for the conscious customer.
The product of its founders' shared interest in sneakers, Axel Arigato was established in 2013 and its rapid evolution is an international success story. Its sneakers are a result of the label’s tireless efforts to reinvigorate the market with new models, colours and patterns. We think this label is definitely one to watch.
