Garment Printing stocks a wide network of clothing brands such as American Apparel, Adidas, Fruit of the Loom, B&C, Nike, Continental Clothing and many more. The latest addition to expand the sustainable range is Stanley & Stella.
Sustainability is at the forefront of things. Garment Printing offers clothing companies the opportunity to be more responsible for their actions, and share the belief that fast fashion is not sustainable anymore. They offer a wide range of organic environmentally friendly clothing produced in sustainable ways, as well as environmentally friendly printing techniques such as water-based screen-printing.
The whole textile printing and fashion industry was shocked, when in April last year a textile factory collapsed in Dhaka, Bangladesh, killing over 1100 people that were working in the unsafe building. For many, this horrible incident lead to a change in mindset towards slow fashion and away from fast fashion, now focusing on sustainably produced garments, reducing environmental impact while offering workers safe working conditions and adequate remuneration.
This change of mindset has led to the initiation of the Fashion Revolution Day, in which Garment Printing participated to showcase its organic range and sustainable printing techniques.
To offer clients a wide range of products while remaining sustainable, the next step for Garment Printing was to join forces with Stanley & Stella. They work with sustainable fabrics such as organic cotton, Tencel, Lenzig Modal and Linen, and fabrication processes that have low energy consumption from renewable energies with alternative uses for all by-products and consequently no waste. Finally, the warehouses are 100% solar-powered and shipment takes place by sea, which is less polluting than air-road-shipment.
“With Stanley & Stella we can bring sustainable fashion to the Work wear, promotional clothing & t-shirt printing world for companies and brands that want to make a difference,” says Gavin Drake, Director, Garment Printing.
Garment Printing has printed for clients such as Unicef using organic clothing and sustainable printing techniques, however also other, smaller clients such as the restaurant Makamaka in Barcelona use organic Bamboo clothing for their work wear.
With organic clothing and sustainable printing techniques, we can all change the textile industry, one step at a time.
