BEAUTIFUL, SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

 

"Care for your clothes like the good friends they are" - JOAN CRAWFORD

 
 

OUR ETHOS

All sticks + stone products are crafted with beautiful, environmentally conscious fabrics.

We use Certified, Sustainable, Organic Cotton Materials, that are completely free of the use of synthetic chemicals such as pesticides + fertilisers.

All Fabrics are coloured with the use of all natural, non-toxic dyes, to bring you the naturally vibrant colours in the range.

Sustainability isn’t just about quality of materials, it’s also about quality of production + longevity of items.

sticks + stone garments are made to last. We encourage each item to be totally loved + worn out. In doing so, you will be buying less, creating less demand + minimising your footprint.

WHY IS THIS SO IMPORTANT?

The fashion Industry is the second largest polluter globally, second only to Oil.

Unlike Organic Cotton, Conventional Cotton has the highest rate of chemical use, covering 2.5% of the globe's cultivated land but consuming 16% of the world's insecticides.

Chemicals used in the processing of Conventional Cotton also pollute the air + surface waters, whilst upsetting biodiversity + natural ecosystems.

This creates damaging outcomes for the environment , animals + humans alike.

 

WHAT IS 'GOTS' CERTIFICATION?

All fabrics used to craft sticks + stone products, are accredited with The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) Certification; which is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres.

The Standard includes ecological + social criteria, supported by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain.
