STSC are fabric wholesalers who aim to inspire global fashion and product designers to use true sustainable eco-textiles that have minimal negative impact on the environment and maximum impact on the welfare of all people along the supply chain.
Our particular focus is on beautiful, truly sustainable, circular, natural, biodegradable and ethical fabrics. In particular we specialise in eco-fabrics by Lenzing and plant fibres from so-called ”farm waste" typically destroyed after a harvest, thus creating fabrics that start from zero water waste, and support a ”wealth from waste" philosophy.

STSC work with the Tamil Nadu Agricultural University's Eco Green Unit to support their "Wealth From Waste" Project.
The Unit have worked to develop an improved Fibre Extraction Machine, and along with additional support from Prime Minister Modi's Make In India initiative, the Eco Green Unit offer subsidies to banana farmers and communities to help them purchase machines and receive training.
By working with STSC you will help make a difference as we pledge to donate a % from each sale to a dedicated fund so we can purchase and gift Fibre Extraction Machines to farming communities.
Currently only 10% of banana pseudo stems are used for making fabric or products after each harvest. The majority is removed at great cost to the farmer, and often burnt, adding to local air pollution. We aim to change this.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the country on which we live on today, the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, and recognise their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging.
Sovereignty has never been ceded. It always was and always will be, Aboriginal land. We recognise the past atrocities against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this land and that Australia was founded on the genocide and dispossession of First Nations people.
