Print on demand with Stanley/Stella
Our suppliers include Stanley/Stella.
Stanley/Stella is a manufacturer that appeared in 2012: since then, it has gradually become a figure in the textile industry, and this is fully deserved.
The company is the fruit of the will and imagination of its founder, whose idea was to "break the codes and change the perception of the textile industry", an industry often criticised for taking liberties with ethics and with the excessive use of resources, such as water or oil.
What is Stanley/Stella's goal? To truly implement strong values of respect for the environment and the worker while offering only premium quality pieces.
Let's take a closer look at why we love working with Stanley/Stella.
An environmentally friendly company
Stanley/Stella has a strong commitment to the environment and offers only environmentally friendly products: in their catalogue you will find a wide range of items made from organic cotton, linen, Tencel® and Modal®, recycled cotton and polyester, etc. In short, the brand makes it a point of honour to manufacture only items made from green materials, which are not greedy for non-renewable resources or essential for the health of our planet.
Since its inception, this manufacturer has been fully committed to its mission of meticulously examining every stage of production to find as many ways as possible to reduce its footprint, from harvesting to distribution. While many textile companies have been greenwashing in recent years, Stanley/Stella is truly taking action to symbolise a return to quality, sustainability and simplicity.
Because Stanley/Stella's commitment has been widely proven, approved and applauded by a large number of organisations, you will notice that this manufacturer benefits from numerous ecological labels and certifications such as the GOTS, guaranteeing the organic designation of its products, the OEKO-TEX Standard, confirming the absence of substances harmful to health in the materials, the GRS (Great Recycled Standard), validating the application of strict ethical and ecological rules for the manufacture of recycled materials and the OCS 100, certifying that the organic composition of the garments is between 95% and 100%.
Another important point for us, because animals are obviously an integral part of our environment, is that the entire catalogue of this lovely company is also awarded the PETA Vegan label. This ensures that no animal substances are used in the products and that no tests have been carried out on animals.
Respect for human work
It should be noted that placing environmental protection at the heart of its concerns does not detract from human well-being. On the contrary, it is another of the brand's motivations: to guarantee ethical working conditions for its workers, most of whom work in Bangladesh, a major textile factory.
Firstly, the choice of organic materials ensures that none of the manufacturer's workers are exposed to the pesticides present in many other crops (such as non-organic cotton), thus saving them from great risks of poisoning.
It should also be noted that Stanley/Stella is part of the highly regarded FairWear Foundation, whose mission is to ensure that labor laws are respected on multiple levels: free choice to work, "no work" kids, no employment discrimination, binding contracts, safe working conditions, freedom of association as well as the allocation of decent wages. It is indeed essential for the brand to offer an optimized quality of life to its workers, notably by setting wages well above the minimum established by the Bangladeshi government: in 2018, wages were in fact subject to a major increase amounting to no less than 50%.
These are some of the reasons why we chose Stanley/Stella as one of our main suppliers when we started out a few years ago and why we remain loyal to them and are proud to have such a partnership with a company that stands for strong values, which we also hold dear.
Respect for animals
The Stanley/Stella garments offered by TPOP are all VEGAN certified and are PETA certified: no animal substances appear in the products, and no animal testing has been carried out.
This is a very important point for us.
