By shopping the Stella Carakasi collection you’re already supporting a brand that takes these virtues to heart. But now, thanks to new crowdfunding legislation, YOU can own a piece of the brand! Your investment will give us the ability to deepen our commitment to the environment and infuse sustainability in everything we do.
Our Commitment to Sustainability
It’s in Our DNA
Our roots are in sustainability and environmental consciousness– values we honor. As an early adapter in sustainable fashion, our story started in 1992 when we launched the first full clothing collection made from hemp. Over the past 2 decades, our business has evolved but our values remain the same.
A Healthier Environment
Synthetic materials like polyester, are manufactured using toxic chemicals and take up to 1,000 years to decompose—which means that all of the polyester that has ever been produced still exists. Whenever possible we use naturally derived fibers like silk, organic cotton, wool, hemp, cashmere, alpaca and Tencel, because they have a lower impact on the environment and feel better against your skin.
Less is More
We believe less is more when less is better. We’ve eliminated excess inventory by manufacturing in small batch productions which means we’re able to increase sustainability and ensure extremely high production standards.
