Stain’s vision is to increase awareness of environmental sustainability by staying committed to making ethical, responsible and environmentally conscious choices. Their aim is to integrate our personal values in fashion and inspire people to make conscious decisions in the right direction.
Stain value the individuals they work with to make their clothes. They work hands-on and closely with their suppliers and local artisans in Indonesia to promote and encourage ethical and safe work environments while perfecting each piece with attention to detail. Through these interactions, they want to build long-lasting connections while redefining the values of fashion through design and ethical practices.
Stain upcycle deadstock fabrics to produce our garments to prevent the textiles from going into landfills, which contributes to land pollution. They also source natural fabrics instead of using synthetic materials to prevent micro-plastics from going into the ocean and not contributing to landfills. But not using plastic in their trimmings or packaging, they avoid using single-use plastic.
PROTECT THE PLANET: Stain pride themselves on ethical, responsible and environmentally conscious fashion practices.
POWER TO THE PEOPLE: Stain keep their work local by working with an independent family-owned workshop that consists of a tight-knit team of eight people.
