Cambodia-based shirt maker VAST is an expert in producing high quality woven apparel with the precision and longevity that we expect in our products. Since Arc’teryx began a partnership with VAST in 2017, they have helped us relaunch our woven shirts and dresses.

The professionalism and competence of the team at VAST equip them for the nuances and technicalities in making our woven items, which combine a sophisticated aesthetic with Arc’teryx performance, functionality and comfort.  The VAST team has willingly taken on extra training to produce our designs, including learning gluing techniques.

VAST’s open attitude and expertise give this relatively new partnership the anticipation of longevity. The parent company, Leadtact Ltd. has a wide range of capacities, including the production of outdoor gear and a textile production facility that makes breathable waterproof material. This means there is a range of possibilities for expanding VAST’s responsibilities. At the moment, we are advancing the VAST craftspeople into more technical shirts, and looking forward to a long and productive relationship with the company.
