Earth-friendly and recycled materials

STANLEY/STELLA work closely with their own suppliers to source only the best raw materials, grown or produced in ways that do not harm people, animals or the environment. They exclusively use GOTS-certified (Global Organic Textile Standard) organic cotton from India, recycled polyester from China and other sustainable materials such as Modal®.

Their supply chains are certified by various independent bodies and standards. Each of these certifications demonstrates that they are working towards building healthy environmental practices, with greater respect for the planet at every step of the way.

Stanley/Stella Organic Cotton
All of the cotton used by STANLEY/STELLA is organic. The organic cultivation of cotton avoids all use of pesticides and is better for the environment, protecting the well-being of farmers and their communities.

They have a Natural Raw cotton collection that’s completely free from dyes. They’ve further adjusted the production process to minimise its environmental impact, with substantial savings in water, energy and chemicals required.

Stanley/Stella Recycled Cotton
They use recycled organic cotton taken from their own cutting waste and mix it with undyed virgin organic cotton to make new yarn. The result creates a natural heather effect, with the raw cotton blended with either white, black or blue cotton waste. By eliminating the dyeing process, they drastically reduce the amount of water and chemicals required.

Stanley/Stella Recyled Polyester
All the polyester used by STANLEY/STELLA is recycled. It’s made from PET plastic bottles that would otherwise go into landfill, saving a considerable amount of energy and water. It is itself recyclable allowing for the potential of a true circular economy.

They’re fully transparent about their own suppliers. They have partner factories in Bangladesh and China, with whom they've created supportive, long-term and collaborative relationships. They have a number of mechanisms in place to ensure decent working conditions, including daily visits to these factories.

They also constantly monitor their own supply chain to better understand its environmental impact and look for new ways of minimizing it. All their partner factories are equipped with state-of-the art Effluent Treatment Plants to remove toxic elements from the water and ensure it’s safe to be reused.
