Think and act sustainably: the Stripe & Stare way
Did you know all our packaging is 100% biodegradable? From our recycled boxes to our plant based bio bags, even our stickers can be put in the compost! We want you to know that we care about the planet and believe small changes can make a difference. We've also now made it an option at checkout to go packaging free! This means your order won't arrive in any boxes.
Why do we only use Lenzing fibres?
Most importantly they are the most sustainable fibres around. The fibres come from a sustainable Beechwood Tree. They are stronger and softer than other fibres.
This is not the only benefit of using Lenzing fibres. We have moved all our sourcing to Lenzing, aside from its sustainability, because we have not found another fabric we love as much. Here’s why:
Eco Print - Made from the natural cellulose found in wood pulp. The fibre is economical in its use of energy and natural resources, and is fully biodegradable.
Colour Rich - TENCEL™ was created with color in mind, because of the fibres’ high absorbency. The fabrics can be dyed to high quality standards.
Moisture Absorbent - This eco fabric has natural breathability and 50% greater moisture absorption than cotton.
Anti-bacterial - Due to its moisture management, TENCEL™ is also anti-bacterial.
Feel of Fabric - Similar to rayon in feel. Soft, breathable, lightweight and comfortable. TENCEL™ has an extremely smooth, soft surface that drapes beautifully
Great for sensitive skin -
TENCEL™’s smooth fibre surface feels soft and supple against the skin and its incredible wicking abilities keep the skin dry, making
TENCEL™ a great fabric for sensitive skin.
TENCEL™ is approved for the use in newborn baby clothing it is so gentle on the skin.
Versatile - This eco fabric has controllable fibrillation (the very fine hairs found on the outer fibres), which can be manipulated into everything form suede-like softness to a silky smooth finish.
Durable - This super fibre can hold up to a beating when both we and dry, and is most conveniently resistant to wrinkles.
Frankly – we love it and are very proud to work with Lenzing.
