While aware that fashion is an inherently unsustainable industry, Stewart Enslow is committed to sustainability wherever possible, at every step of production. From fabric sourcing to packaging, the welfare of the world and the people who live in it are considered.
Fabrics used are either vintage, natural, or deadstock. We use organic fabric and dyes whenever possible. At this time, any new fabric is sourced from a supplier dedicated to fair trade practices in South Korea.
Pieces are sewn in New York City by tailors who set their own rates.
All jewelry is made of 100% recycled sterling silver, and cast in New York City.
Tissue paper, hang tags, and stickers used are made of recycled materials, and mailers are 100% compostable and reusable.
Someday, we hope to use only certified organic materials, but as an emerging brand, this is not realistic right now. We are committed to educating myself about new developments in the world of sustainability and always choosing the most sustainable practices available to us.
