Shoes, mostly made of leather tanned in Italy, are manufactured in Portugal. Albin Johansson, CEO of Arigato, clears up that funds will also contribute to open flagship stores in New York, Paris and Copenhagen, following the great success achieved by the store inaugurated in Soho, London. Furthermore, Max Svärdh, creative director at Arigato, is working on their first apparel product line. Founded in 2014, Axel Arigato earn around 9 million dollars every year. Two women, Montse Suarez and Anna Sweeting, have founded Vaultier7 and currently manage it: “Axel Arigato – they commented – has been always standing out as a fashion disrupter with a peculiar and sharp orientation towards digital”.
