The word “sustainable” covers a daunting and complex array of principles. To say a product is or isn’t “sustainable” without elaborating on why and how is simply not good enough. We wanted to dig a little deeper and break down how each of our products measures up when it comes to this umbrella phrase…
When we design a product, our focus is always on the end user. Not current trends. We take feedback from previous seasons, and slowly evolve our product offering- Stalf is not about a seasonal overhaul of your wardrobe!
Our pieces often transcend the seasonal weather change, are relevant to women of many different ages and should be adaptable in your wardrobe as you move through various stages of life. The Short-Sleeved Sweatshirt is designed to take you from day to evening, Monday to Sunday, pre-through-to-post-pregnancy, and January to December.
We’re always updating the “Wear Stalf” section of our Journal to demonstrate the adaptability and versatility of our garments, take a look for inspiration!
The Short-Sleeved Sweatshirt is made from soft 100% organic cotton plush fabric.
360 grams per m2.
This 100% organic cotton fabric is manufactured in Turkey and carries the GOTs certification.
A bit about the GOTs certification…
GOTs is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, and includes ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. All chemical inputs (e.g. dyes, auxiliaries and process chemicals) must be evaluated and must meet requirements on toxicity and biodegradability/eliminability.
The GOTs certification also stipulates certain social criteria based on the key norms of the International Labour Organisation. These must be met by all processors and manufacturers who must have a social compliance management with defined elements in place to ensure that the social criteria can be met. This criteria cover issues such as ensuring working conditions are safe and hygienic, living wages are met, child labour is prohibited, working hours are not excessive, no discrimination is practiced and ensures the provision of regular employment.
We save all fabric offcuts and waste scraps generated as a by-product of our process here at the Pink Studio.
We believe the manufacturing process is something to be valued and shared. The way we work is something we are very proud of.
Every single one of our garments is researched, designed, hand-cut and made from scratch by Team Stalf, here at our Pink Studio in Lincolnshire, UK.
We manufacture your order on demand. This keeps waste stock to an absolute minimum and means we only process what we will use.
We save all fabric offcuts and waste scraps generated as a by-product of our process here at the Pink Studio. When we've built up enough quantity, we pay for our scraps to be collected and repurposed by a zero-to-landfill recycling company. Our fabric scraps are sorted, processed and given a new life as brand new products such as cleaning cloths, insulation and seat padding.
Your Stalf garment is packaged and posted to you using minimal packaging.
We wrap your new pieces in tissue paper and then pop them in a recyclable mail bag along with your order details and a Stalf postcard- if you like our product, perhaps think about passing it on to a family member or friend along with your recommendation.
