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 Simple Dress 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 Simple Dress is made from our Light-Weight 100% Linen fabric.
185 grams per m2.
This 100% linen fabric is manufactured in small batches at an Eastern European factory with a strong heritage of weaving linen and is Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certified. This means that the fabric is processed without the use of harmful chemicals including azo dyes, formaldehyde, nickel etc.
A bit about Linen…
Linen fabric is made from flax, one of the most sustainable raw materials in the world. During growth, the flax plant receives no additional irrigation; rainwater is sufficient.
During production, every part of the flax plant is used, and there is no waste- every part of the plant not used in the final product is repurposed.
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.
