Stella McCartney Bio Synthetic

The teams at Stella McCartney worked very hard to find innovative and exclusive synthetics to replace leather and in many cases this means that they look at materials that are based on biological components.  Their Autumn 2010, Winter 2010, Winter 2012 and Spring 2013 collection featured many shoes with biodegradable soles made from a bioplastic called APINAT. This means they will degrade when placed in mature compost. Stella McCartney is excited to be able to incorporate these cutting edge sustainable materials into their collections in a way that pushes the boundaries of what a sustainable product can look like.

Additionally Stella McCartney has been using bio plastics to create beautiful eyewear. The sustainable eyewear collection is the result of extensive research into the use of raw materials from natural origins such as castor-oil seeds and citric acid. The collection is made from over 50% natural and renewable resources.

Stella McCartney is excited to be expanding their use of bio-synthetics in their Autumn 2013 collection – a variety of both bags and shoes will be incorporating the use of bio-synthetics. Stella McCartney is dedicated to being a responsible company and will continue to work with innovative synthetics in order to give their customers luxurious non-leather goods.
