Not just another cycling apparel brand
Back in 2018 when we first founded Staark, we knew we wanted to run an ethical business – and that’s quite a challenge given the current state of the clothing industry.
After three years of product research, development and testing we filed for our B-Corp status in 2021 and in 2022 we were awarded full B-Corp status.
We achieved this by looking at every aspect of our business and ensuring we took the most ethical approach to every element of our operation.
Our garments are made from ecologically-sound components – where possible our fabrics are made from recycled materials and are themselves recyclable. No bleach is used during the fabric production process. Our materials are made in Europe and shipped to Italy for production.
Staark only uses sustainable materials in garment construction and packaging – ethics is at the very core of the business.
We identified a number of manufacturing facilities in Italy and picked a family-run business to produce our garments. We met the staff and were delighted to see how the business has several generations of family working at the factory in rather delightful conditions.
We’re making clothing in batches, all made-to-order so there’s no waste and avoiding the all-to-common problems of having ‘distressed stock’ that ends up in the bin.
As a company we believe in doing the right thing, from gender diversity and quality and inclusion, to helping the planet in everything we do.
