Circular Centre
REPLACE, REPAIR, REDESIGN, REPURPOSE. STSC manufactures & wholesales 500+ sustainable textiles including low MOQs. Circular design consulting + Circular Textile Waste Service to take-back all forms of textile "waste" via Circular Textile Precincts.

Think of a circular jigsaw where garments + textile resources come in and out of our circular systems to ensure they are made sustainably, plus the "waste" stays local and out of landfill and the resources remain at their highest value for longer.

We REPLACE unsustainable textiles, including a new development CircStretch textile where we have designed out toxic plastic microfibres from stretch clothing. CircStretch blends natural fibres with the world’s first Cradle To Cradle® Products Innovation Institute Gold Level Material Health Certified elastane yarn that is also Certified by the Hohenstein Institute as 100% non-toxic as it breaks down making it safe to home compost.

We offer a smart thread solution to create advanced e-textiles for supply chain management from fibre to "waste" plus QR Code customer engagement linking to existing IT systems for wholesale, transport, data collection then transfer to blockchain when it reaches the Circular Textile Waste Service.

Through our Circular Textile Precincts we train staff to set up our unique circular systems to provide jobs suited to the individuals skillset. We valorise and redistribute via our existing circular streams to keep 100% of the jobs and resources onshore.

Our Circular Textile Waste Service can collect unwearable and unusable garment and textile waste to reuse, repair, redesign and repurpose through four main circular textile systems. Work with us to create circular design systems to inspire your customers and become circular industry leaders.
