Stanley/Stella manufactures socially responsible clothing. All shirts are made of 100% organic cotton from sustainable plantations. Organic cotton uses less water than standard cotton. In addition, its production does not involve the use of chemicals so there are no health risks for the farmers who pick the cotton and for the villagers who live nearby.
The production takes place in Asia and is certified by the largest labels in the market. As a result, the factories comply with the strictest safety standards and sound employment conditions. Employees are given opportunities to acquire new skills, to follow training courses and to inform themselves.
In addition to this mental satisfaction, a Stanley/Stella shirt is simply pleasant to wear. It is soft, comfortable and the cut, sewing and finish are of good quality.
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. 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.
The absence of harmful chemical substances in all Stanley/Stella products is what the OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certifies thanks to the “Confidence in textile” label. It is an independent testing and certification system that ensures that all raw, semi-finished and finished textile products are processed in a way that prioritises:
- The precautionary principle, which prohibits certain potentially harmful substances even where they are not (yet) legally banned
- The absence of chemical substances that are harmful to health and the environment
- A restriction on the lead content of dyes
