STSC work with designers and companies to source true sustainable eco-textiles and help them become some of the first businesses to support our planet and join the sustainable revolution.
We work closely with our suppliers in India who produce exceptionally high quality, true eco-friendly textiles using natural plant based dyes.
Choose from a range of natural fibre textiles including GOTS Certified Organic cotton, Khadi, Linen, Soya Bean, Hemp, Lenzing Tencel, Modal, plus Banana Sylk - the pinnacle of sustainable natural textiles.
Banana plant stem "waste" is used to make the gorgeous Banana Sylk. We in turn support the Waste from Wealth Project, donating to the Tamil Nadu Agriculture University's Eco Green Unit as part of the Make In India initiative.
By using natural fibres from plants originally grown for food crops, we can support the preservation of the world's water supply. Learn more about our natural dyeing methods.
Our products are hand-dyed using natural plant-based dyes therefore colours may vary slightly from one order to the next. We believe this is part of the gorgeous part of nature.
WHOLESALE FABRIC & SERVICE TIMEFRAMES.
Timeframes for sending Sample Books and fabric samples is approx 2-6 weeks depending on availability - some Books may need to be made and shipped, or I may need to wait for a full production run to secure sample fabrics (depends on the order MOQ) ie. could be faster but allow at least 30 days.
- Sample runs (for Low MOQs) you will usually receive within 30-90 days from STSC or the Mill after receiving 100% payment.
- Production runs (large MOQs (7-60 days) from Mill.
Usual process includes the Mill receiving a 30%-100% deposit. In some instances we require the Mill to send a Production Sample once they've finished the full production for final approval.
100% full payment plus shipping costs is required prior to its release. The Mills and STSC do not hold open accounts.
STSC have an amazing Shipping Agent and we do not use a client's Courier Account. It is enormously time consuming and so far unsuccessful to allow clients to arrange shipping due to a variety of courier security restrictions. You can get a comparative quote, but I guarantee my Agent is faster and the best.
WE ARE ALL LEARNING....
Given the enormous amount of variables brought about by dealing with hundreds of fabrics and multiple Mills, there will always be adjustments - but as we grow the industry we hope to have more and more fabrics available and stories to share of our farming and artisan communities, Mills, makers, dyers and eco-printers who are all the backbone of this push to support the health of the environment and the people, and the reason why I support them and love working with them.
RESEARCH & SLOW FASHION LEAD TIMES.
I’ve designed the STSC website to give designers quick access and the benefit of learning from my years of information that I’ve discovered over the years about sustainable, biodegradable, circular fashion textiles?
I feel it’s important to share so designers can use it as a resource to learn as much as possible, and as quickly as possible, to help brands pivot fast as we move into this exciting new direction of sustainable and circular fashion and to help capture the growing number of customers asking for action.
I’ve amassed a huge range of fabrics over the last two & a half years by working closely with wholesale fabric Mills and Artisan groups to be able to offer a range of several hundred different fabrics to suit various price points and target markets and to offer both large and low MOQs.
Textiles are made to order to minimise waste, therefore customers will need to factor in an estimated lead time of at least two months for delivery, with progress updates given throughout.
We focus exclusively on processes with a minimum of negative environmental footprint.
STSC and our suppliers in Austria, India, Indonesia and Japan work to ensure their business and production practices are of the highest ethical and environmental standards, and we are proud to work with an exceptional team who care as much about our communities and the planet as we do.
