It all began with Owner Katie's hunt for the perfect pair of knickers. This turned into six years of research and development to create the perfect shape, fit and most importantly comfort. A pair of knickers that are the first you reach for everyday and made of the best fabric possible. And a product that would be supportive of the environment. The search led to a fabric that is made sustainably in Austria from Beechwood Trees called TENCEL™ Micro Modal. A fabric that is three times softer than cotton, wears better and is breathable with the skin. In 2017 Katie, together with good friend Nicola, launched Stripe & Stare, a business incorporating knickers and loungewear, all sourced consciously with a transparent product sourcing journey, that unites its wearers and creates a community where women empower each other.
All products are made from TENCEL™ Micro Modal, an amazing eco-friendly fabric that represents a milestone in the development of environmentally sustainable textiles. Made with wood pulp from sustainable tree farms, TENCEL™ are the most sustainable fibers around. A naturally sustainable and soft fiber that starts with the tree and ends with the softest fabric you’ve ever felt. All of their packaging is 100% biodegradable and shipped in recycled boxes in plant based bio bags!
