All our clothing is made from 100% organic cotton.
Organic cotton is a natural, GMO-free fibre that uses less water than standard cotton. In addition, its production does not involve the use of chemicals (no fertilisers or pesticides) and encourages rotation of crops to keep soil healthier, more fertile and maintain humidity. Waste from the cotton ginning process is also recycled for the animal feed industry.
Organic cotton is the only alternative that severely limits the used of chemical products in favour of organic or natural fertilisers or pesticides.
GOTS is the Global Organic Textile Standard label. The strictest certification for textiles made from organic fibres. GOTS tracks the entire chain of production from farm to factory: from harvesting of the cotton, weaving of fibres, assembly of items, to the final product before printing, including even the export of our clothing! It certifies that Stanley/Stella cotton is GMO-free and is grown without the use of chemicals and is processed and dyed without using any banned toxic substances.
GOTS also ensures compliance with the labour standards of the International Labour Organisation throughout the chain of production.
Fair Wear Foundation is a Dutch independent association whose members are
committed to improving the working conditions in the textile industry.
It is only together, from cooperative agriculture through to the end consumer, through brands, distributors and factories, that we will be able to move towards a better world.
