One Hundred Stars
About the Company: Founded in 2015, One hundred stars is a small family run independent business based in Sheffield consisting of sisters Heather and Rona. Ethical production is vitally important. They ensure all products are only ever printed using AZO free dyes, recycled packaging is used wherever possible, and all staff in the UK and abroad are paid above the standard living wage. Each screen printed item is printed by hand with up to ten applications of beautifully vivid dye.
Garments are made in India using the highest standards of ethical, environmental, and health and safety practice. One Hundred Stars works exclusively with another second-generation family business for their garment manufacture. This company is audited regularly and awarded certification SA 8000. This is a social audit that ensures there is no child labour, no bonded labour and employs all its skilled workers on a permanent basis. In addition, One Hundred Stars carries out its own factory inspections once a year in person for extra piece of mind. The company is also committed to using sea freight rather than air freight to reduce the carbon footprint of the products.
To reduce wastage, One hundred stars design items specifically to make use of off-cut material. Any faulty items are repaired in house, then sold in our yearly sample sale, where all proceeds go to local charities. The collaboration with The Royal Botanic Gardens Kew, a percentage of every sale from this collaborative range goes towards the vital work carried out at Kew into climate change research, preservation of natural habitats and conservation.
