The Textile Exchange have confirmed something that we’ve known for quite a while here at Fifth Column. However, now it’s official – Stanley Stella are one of the top sustainable clothing brands. They’ve been named double in in the top 16 brands for sourcing sustainable materials. Being in the Leaders Circle of the Textile Exchange’s Material Change Index (MCI) is a huge achievement, made even more impressive by the fact that Stanley Stella are the only B2B clothing brand to get in there.
We’re delighted for Stanley Stella and also pretty pleased to be one of their official dealers. When you’ve been printing t-shirts for as long as we have, you get good at identifying quality products. And when you specialise in sourcing and printing garments from GOTS-certified, Fairtrade and Fair Wear audited producers, you quickly spot an ethical approach. We thought the official news about Stanley Stella being one of the top sustainable clothing brands was too good an opportunity to miss. Mind you, we don’t need much encouragement to look at great blank merchandise. T-shirts and tops, hoodies and sweatshirts, bags and accessories, we love them all. Especially when they’re durable, stylish and perfect for personalisation. So let’s see some of the reasons why Stanley Stella have been officially recognised as a leading sustainable clothing brand.
Stanley Stella T-Shirts & Tops.
T-shirt printing was where it all began for us (way back in the Seventies) and we still love it to this day. We pride ourselves on producing exceptional results. But the best ink is even better when it’s printed on great materials and that’s an area in which Stanley & Stella really stand out. Stanley Stella t-shirts offer everything you could ask for when creating custom clothing. Their outstanding selection of tees is made from organic cotton and eco-friendly fabrics and the attention to detail and finish is of the highest standard. There’s a vast palette of colours and the designs range from classic to on trend. The catalogue includes men, women, unisex and kids styles. Best of all, there are tees, tank tops and polo shirts that are specifically created for customisation. It’s a comprehensive collection which would probably be enough in itself to qualify Stanley Stella as one of the top sustainable clothing brands, but they do a lot more than t-shirts.
Stanley Stella Hoodies & Sweatshirts.
No blank clothing catalogue would be complete without the humble hoody or sweat. These garments have become staples of the custom clothing industry, a winner when it comes to workwear and a fashion necessity for kicking back outside of working hours. Stanley Stella hoodies and sweatshirts reach the same heights as their superb tees. It’s no big surprise that more and more customers are choosing Stanley Stella sweatshirts, and even less of a surprise that they’re increasingly popular with print and embroidery companies like us. We passionately believe that business should strive to be fair and ethical, printing sustainable clothes and merchandise is one of our passions, but the products have to be good for that to be a viable option. Stanley Stella hoodies are endorsed by the best environmental and ethical credentials, and they look great, into the bargain. And let’s not forget that they’re excellent quality and just begging for print and embroidery.
Stanley Stella Bags, Accessories and More.
This is by no means everything that Stanley Stella have to offer – click Here to view their full catalogue in more detail. We can take a quick peek, talk about a few of the extras. Stanley Stella tote bags are a joy to decorate and they’re also pretty cool to use. Everyday useful objects that can carry your logo in the right way. Their accessories include things like the innovative hooder and pencil cases (imagine your design on such a beautifully simple item). The clothes aren’t limited to t-shirts and hoodies. There is more. Jackets, dresses and vests, pants and shorts. Apparel on demand is their thing. There are over 5 million pieces of stock in their Belgian warehouse, sitting at the heart of Europe, and waiting for the printer’s ink or embroiderer’s stitch. They boast an extensive network of expert decorators. Folk like us that value a sustainable ethos and also understand that business and commerce is essential but needs be fair.
Here at Fifth Column, we make no bones about the fact that we like Stanley Stella stuff. We love a responsible supplier and we love quality. The Textile Exchange report only makes what we already knew official. Stanley Stella are one of the top sustainable clothing brands. That’s an endorsement which stretches beyond London and the UK, it’s a worldwide mark of distinction.
