We are excited to bring to you our CircStretch collection and offer four different textile blends via the STSC CLUB for 100+kg orders. There's also a STSC CLUB FaceBook Group for those who want to form mini-groups and place an EOI together.
LETS STOP PLASTIC POLLUTION TOGETHER
By using CircStretch you will be able to promote your label as a leader in sustainability and circular design who is tackling the enormous problem of plastic pollution.
Together, and for the first time, you will be able to design and create garments such as apparel, underwear, socks, yoga pants, activewear and swimwear using a stretch textile, garment elastics and a sewing thread that will leave zero toxic plastic microfibres in the environment and will quickly and safely break down even in a home compost.
When you join the STSC CLUB you receive the CircStretch Introduction and the Price List and Order Process. These will lead you through the steps to place an Expression of Interest and if interested, participate in a combined bulk order through the STSC CLUB.
We have developed CircStretch with three different natural fibres; LENZING TENCEL™ MODAL, EcoVero™ and GOTS organic cotton. The adding a smaller percentage of ROICA™ V550; the worlds first bio-stretch with the Cradle to Cradle™ (C2C) Gold certification plus the Hohenstein Institute certification showing its non-toxic as it breaks down.
The CircStretch blends create stretch textiles that will easily breakdown to become non-toxic compost and shed zero toxic plastic microfibres in the environment. Some new textiles on the market can take 5 years however most will take decades all the while shedding plastic micro-fibres in our soil, waterways, oceans, sea life, water and food supply.
Current home composting research shows the main natural yarns will break down in around 8-12 weeks and the small amount of fine clear bio-stretch yarn may take 1-2 years leaving zero plastic pollution.
Our constructions are interlock, single jersey and rib and we use only C2C and Bluesign dyes plus offer garment elastic with natural rubber and organic cotton plus TENCEL™ lyocell sewing thread.
We have some exciting developments for smart thread and commercial composting that we are working on and hope to offer via the STSC CLUB when possible.
EOI is now open to STSC CLUB members.
Please download and carefully read both documents. This is a culmination of over a years work and considerable investment and we are driven to be able to offer this textile to all designers including those requiring low Minimum order quantities.
This is aimed to help as many designers pivot away from plastic textiles as quickly as we possibly can.
See details below and follow the process depending on your MOQ requirements and please also share the exciting news about CircStretch with all designers working with stretch textiles, the faster we all work to stop using plastic textiles, the happier we all will be and STSC is looking forward to supporting both people and planet together with you.
