Fair Trade Clothing.
Organic Cotton Clothing.
Using organic farming methods can benefit not only the environment, but also farmers. It keeps the farming land healthier without using synthetic pesticides or fertilisers, thus reducing the health risks for farmers too! Here are some of the ecological benefits of organic cotton:
- Hazardous chemicals are banned in certified organic farming, keeping these toxins out of the soil and waterways;
- Less energy and water can be used with good organic cotton farming methods;
- More carbon dioxide can be locked into the soil, rather than released into the atmosphere;
- Organic certification covers all stages of production – farm and factory, meaning that hazardous chemicals are also prohibited in fibre processing and garment creations stages and all waste water treated to keep the waterways free from pollutants.
So in our quest for eco-friendly clothing (friendly to the environmental and social eco system), at Fairtees we are pleased to supply a large range of organic cotton clothing. Much or our clothing is made from 100% organic cotton, and some are organic cotton blends – such as the blend of organic cotton and the luxuriously soft and eco-friendly Lenzing TENCEL®. Seriously, so soft! Thanks to Stanley & Stella’s production chain certifications, these organic cotton garments are produced with certification by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) or, for the organic cotton blend garments, to the Organic Blended Content Standard. For more information about our organic cotton clothing from an organisational and certification standpoint, visit the Global Organic Textile Standard or Textile Exchange websites.
Sustainability with Style.
There are many consideration that come into play for sustainability. At Fairtees, we are please to supply Australia with Stanley & Stella’s range of clothing because they strive for sustainability in the following ways:
Browse the range of clothes that all use eco-friendly fibres, which are produced and processed in some very high-tech, clean ways. Here’s a short description of the 3 types of eco-friendly fibres which are weaved and spun to form these everyday styles:
Lenzing TENCEL® garments aren’t made from just any old eucalyptus fibre! No sir. In fact, Lenzing uses a unique award-winning closed loop system to make Tencel. The solvent used is recycled, and processes the fibre from its sustainable wood beginnings into a soft, luxurious and eco-friendly fibre.
The deliciously soft Lenzing Modal® garments are also of quite a high eco-friendly standard. Using the patented Edelweiss Technology, the processing of the beechwood fibre is a carbon-neutral operation. And the result is a beautifully soft fibre, sleek and comfortable.
A cool and natural fibre made from the flax plant, linen is such an eco-friendly fibre because it is produced without waste and uses less energy and water to make. And guess what – as a cellulosic fibre, it’s 100% biodegradable! Not only that, linen is amazingly breathable, keeping you cool and fresh in hot weather.
We believe in style that sticks. The fashion industry is known for its “throw-away” mentality, but we hope this will change. We believe the way to change starts with choosing a wardrobe that won’t grow tired. That’s why we love supplying Australia with premium quality garments in timeless styles that are designed to last. So everyday wear is what we’re here to share. Clothes you can wear to work, and clothes you can lounge about in – the styles that last from day-to-day and year-to-year.
Of course, for something to be sustainable, those sustainable practices need to seep into everything we do. We know there is always room for growth and improvement. If you want to know more about how go about our business to keep it as sustainable as we can, take a peek at our retail site.
