Although Nan Yang has been our graphics t-shirt maker since 2017, we’ve known the company for much longer, having used its textile mill to supply our DryTech™ fabric from 2008. When the owners of this cotton-specialist company decided to go vertical and integrate their milling operations with a finished goods facility, we already had a relationship of trust that made Nan Yang the logical choice to help us launch our revamped graphics program.

Beginning with a modest sewing factory in 1958, Nan Yang Textile Group is now made up of 14 affiliated companies with a total work force of over 14,000 people across multiple sites in South East Asia, Hong Kong and the USA. With an aim to be a one-stop resource for their partners, they offer a complete range of textile solutions from spinning, knitting and dyeing to apparel making, all with a dedication to the development of cutting-edge innovative processes.

The culture at Nan Yang is bold and forward-thinking. Nan Yang’s CEO Vbul Tuangsitthisombat  and his team have begun investing in synthetic materials and seamless technology, which aligns with areas that Arc’teryx is exploring. An important element of our partnership with Nan Yang is a shared sustainability objective. Beyond the high quality standard Arc’teryx requires from all of its partners, Nan Yang has implemented initiatives to not only reuse residual fibres in the mill, but recycle scraps from the cutting room. They also collect rainwater for use within the facility.

Although we nominate all of our materials and work directly with our material suppliers around the globe, we gain efficiencies with partners that can take on both material production and product manufacturing.

This second phase of our partnership with Nan Yang, in which they serve as both supplier and maker, has made an already good relationship an increasingly valuable one.
