Our partners practice a no waste production cycle, harness solar energy and maintain small batch productions to avoid excess. Stems products use recycled cashmere and polyester when possible, and recycled paper for our packaging.
Responsibly sourced, consistent quality with advanced knitting techniques. We strive to deliver you an innovative product that is meant to last and become your top drawer favorites.
At Stems, we follow an always-considerate approach. We work with multi-generation family owned manufacturing partners who add economic value to their micro communities and are able to use their heritage techniques and apply them to advanced technologies.
Launched in August 2020, New York label Stems found immediate success thanks to the industry experience of partners Rochelle Sara Gan & Nandita Sekhar. With experience at luxury brands like Michael Kors, Diane Von Furstenberg, Thelios (L.V.M.H) & Manolo Blahnik, both founders wanted to build a brand that spoke to their beliefs, addressed their needs, and conformed to their aesthetic.
Like all good stories, Stems started with a moment of embarrassment. This one involved an ex (and a pair of day-old socks). Most women have an story about socks that have let them down, and that’s because most women’s socks are adapted from men’s socks — but our bodies are different, we perspire differently and we should expect our legwear to meet our needs.
With the belief that the joy of dressing begins feet first, Stems brings you the unexpected, balancing necessity and playfulness.
