Where are our clothes made?Stanley/Stella products are mainly made in Asia (Bangladesh and China) and all of our linen garments are made exclusively in Portugal. If you want more information on production or our certifications, please visit our website www.stanleystella.com
Are our products certified?Most of our products are certified. The GOTS standard applies to all of our 100% organic cotton garments, the OCS Blended standard applies to our products that are made of several materials (Cotton/Polyester, Cotton/Tencel, Cotton/Rayon, Cotton/Wool). OCS 100 (only for our Stanley Acts and Stella Likes garments). Our garments also meet the Oek Tex standard and are Reach Compliant.
We are affiliated to the Fairwear Foundation and so we can guarantee that all of our products are ethically made.
Why do some products not have an organic certification?Some of our products are made from pulpwood fibres, such as rayon and Tencel. For some of our garments, we also use recycled polyester. These products comply with the OCS Blended standard as they are blended with organic cotton. However, when a garment is 100% made with one single material then there is no certification as there is no certifying body for these materials. Nevertheless, these materials are environmentally friendly.
How can I care for Stanley/Stella garments?The clothes comply with the textile industry standards and requirements. Washing instructions are written on the label of each garment. Please follow them to ensure that our garments last as long as possible.
In order to remain environmentally friendly, we recommend you wash your clothes at a maximum temperature of 30 degrees and that you do not use a dryer.
Are our clothes suitable for printing and embroidery?All of our clothes are designed to be customised and can immediately be printed on using many printing techniques.
Transfer, screen printing, digital printing, and embroidery techniques can all be applied to most of our products. However, we recommend techniques that are environmentally friendly.
Do the garments bear labels?Yes, our garments bear labels. There is a label in the left inner seam of the garment. This label indicates washing instructions, where the garment was manufactured, garment information and the garment reference. There is a label that indicates the size inside the collar. It is off-centre so you have enough space to affix your own brand.
