The week of sustainability
- Eric Schweitzer
You know that there is a topic that is very important to us: sustainability. And this week is a special week because with World Environment Day (June 5th) and World Oceans Day (June 8th) it was and is dedicated to this important topic. Especially in times like these, we should pay more attention to our blue planet than ever. And so that you can do this, we will tell you three reasons why we at Stapf can proudly say that we produce sustainable products.
We source our yarns from family businesses in Austria and Italy. The cotton we use comes from Portugal and is organic and GOTS certified. The sewing of the garments also takes place exclusively within Europe, currently in Slovakia, Romania, the Czech Republic and Ukraine. This means we can ensure the shortest possible transport routes. All fabrics are knitted and milled in-house in Wörgl.
Production takes place without the addition of dyes or plasticizers and we are working with our producers to convert the majority of wool to organic by 2025. We only use sheep and cotton, no artificial yarns. Our buttons also do not contain plastic and are made from wood, horn, metal or recycled coffee grounds.
3. SLOW FASHION
We are clearly positioning ourselves against the fast pace of the fashion industry and want you to enjoy the favorite items you have purchased for as long as possible. We therefore select materials with high quality and long durability, such as cotton from controlled organic farming.
So that you can enjoy your favorite item for as long as possible, you can purchase the Stapf Care voucher and have your Stapf products professionally prepared by us.
