HAND(fucking)MADE in America.
Co-owned by wife & husband maker duo,
WaZeil & UaZit.
Established in 2015, with a passion to thrive by our own means. We want more from life than to simply exist. For ourselves, and for you! Our hands are dipped in many forms of physical, visual and auditory creations that are incessantly inspired by the natural world. All of our products are handmade by us with an obsessive eye for detail; made with love and intention.
The most important thing you should know about us and our work is that ALL of what we do is done without (fucking) censorship and with full authenticity. Those two values are the core foundation of STALPH.With intentions to respect, honor, and cherish the earth, we are on a mission to make products safe for humans, the earth we wander and all of its precious creatures. Our identity naturally came to fruition when we started practicing deeper self-love. Deciding to cut as many toxins as possible from our own physical consumption made us want to reflect those actions in our creations. We came to the realization that all of our synthetic tools and materials to create could be replaced by resources found in nature. With that transformation, our creative vision for STALPH metamorphosed into one that is rooted in alchemy; the process of taking something ordinary and turning it into something extraordinary. From the nuts to the tree limbs that drop them, we use it all.
With a conscious mind, we are committed to always improving and evolving our practices to align with authenticity, zero waste and sustainability; from our design stages, to production to packaging. Being resourceful and living consciously without excess or waste is incredibly important to us. Plant-based, bio-degradable, compostable and recyclable are the four drivers for STALPH. From the products themselves, to the labels and packaging. We exclusively use premium, organic, ethically sourced and biodegradable textiles/sewing notions. We create all natural textile dyes, inks and watercolors; often from wild-harvested materials. All paper products, visual art prints, labels and tags are printed on post consumer recycled paper. Our shipping boxes are made from post consumer recycled cardboard and the remainder of our shipping supplies are completely biodegradable or recyclable. We also participate in Carbon Neutral Shipping Services.
Throughout the years of growing STALPH into what it has come to be, one constant reigns above all else...We are the embodiment of our brand. Its face, heart and soul. Everything we create and sell is a detail from our own daily life. From the moment you wake, until you wind down for the night.We thank you for shopping small, supporting ethical practices and are grateful to share this intimate experience of hand(fucking)made with you.
Our linen is sourced from Fabrics-store.con. All their flax is grown and processed throughout Eastern Europe and OEKO-TEX certified. The OEKO-TEX organization tests l products for over 100 harmful toxins and chemicals before approving them for public use. This is known as Standard 100 and you can read more about it here: https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/our-standards/standard-100-by-oeko-tex
Fabrics-store.com also believes that social sustainability, the way they treat their employees and the people involved in creating their linen, is just as important as the way they treat our environment. Independent evaluators randomly audit various aspects of production to assess the manufacturing process against requirements set forth by the relevant European and American government standards.
Our Organic Cotton & Organic Hemp is sourced from Envirotextiles.com. All Cotton and all Hemp is certified organically grown by Control Union according to the NOP National Organic Program and GOTS Global Organic Textile Standard certification. It is not possible to certify a garment to be organic, it is only the fiber from a plant that can be certified, like food products. Fiber is from a plant that can be certified if required, such as for the growing practices of cotton due to the harmful amounts of pesticides and herbicides. Other certifications for our COTTON YARNS are “Global Organic Textile Standard” GOTS for the processing of fibers from certified organic agriculture.

All of our textiles are naturally dyed, with materials that are kind to the earth. Sourced from either reputable suppliers or wild-harvested ourselves.
In our effort to push sustainability further, exhausted dye baths post textile dyeing are used to make natural inks and watercolors. This eliminates production waste. Textile scraps are all saved and used for our smaller one of a kind products. We also frequently send scraps to doll makers, quilters and patch workers.
