All our products represent the lifestyle at Lake Constance / Bodensee. We offer high quality fashion, including certified organic cotton and environmentally friendly printing. Optimal wearing comfort meets warm, durable, sustainable, fair made fashion. Bodensoul Wear is refined with beautiful individual and sea-typical graphics, which stand for the beautiful location and our very consciously lived Lake Constance coziness. Our clothes are comfortable companions for fun on and by the lake - suitable for every season. Our enthusiasm for the Lake Constance region lies in all our products and in every breath fresh lake and mountain air in our "Bodensee" region.
Bodensoul is the new cult brand in the German, Austrian and Swiss Lake Constance region.
This is where our vitamin-sea-network with Bodensoul dealers around Lake Constance will soon be established. If you are also interested, then we look forward to hearing from you, because our vitamin-see-network needs you.
The establishment of the vitamin-sea-network is being delayed due to the corona, but we will not let ourselves get down.
All our dealer products are not avialable online, so there is no competition for you to our online shop. We are on Lake Time, therefore reachable via
Our Partner is convinced that manufacturing in Asia is a good thing if done properly. And properly means respecting the rights of the men and women that we employ. It means giving them the means to acquire new skills and to receive education and training.
In Dhaka, our 19-person team, all Bangladeshi, monitors our 5 partner factories every day. All of which are GOTS-certified and audited by the Fair Wear Foundation, of which Stanley/Stella is a recognised member.
Our Partner never uses standard cotton. Most of our clothing is made from 100% organic cotton.
Organic cotton is a natural, GMO-free fibre that uses less water than standard cotton. In addition, its production does not involve the use of chemicals (no fertilisers or pesticides) and encourages rotation of crops to keep soil healthier, more fertile and maintain humidity. Waste from the cotton ginning process is also recycled for the animal feed industry.
OUR GOTS CERTIFICATION: 4 LETTERS THAT CHANGE EVERYTHING
GOTS is the Global Organic Textile Standard label. The strictest certification for textiles made from organic fibres. GOTS tracks the entire chain of production from farm to factory: from harvesting of the cotton, weaving of fibres, assembly of items, to the final product before printing, including even the export of our clothing! It certifies that Stanley/Stella cotton is GMO-free and is grown without the use of chemicals and is processed and dyed without using any banned toxic substances.
GOTS also ensures compliance with the labour standards of the International Labour Organisation throughout the chain of production.
TENCEL® AND MODAL®
Tencel® and Modal® are biodegradable and made from eucalyptus or beech tree pulp. Eucalyptus is known for being a fast-growing wood that does not require irrigation. The Tencel manufacturing process has received the “European Award for the Environment” from the European Union due to its low emissions.
Our cellulose fibres are sourced exclusively from the Austrian manufacturer Lenzing, the first fibre manufacturer to have received the EU Ecolabel, which promotes environmental excellence.
Linen is a tough natural fibre that is extremely “eco-friendly”. It can be grown without the use of either chemicals or irrigation. Natural precipitation is all that it requires. In addition, each plant also absorbs a large quantity of carbon.
Stanley/Stella uses recycled polyester to make its windcheater jackets and as a complement (up to 15%) to organic cotton in some of our sweatshirts.
One windcheater jacket enables the recycling of between 7 and 8 PET plastic bottles. And to ensure that our sweatshirts are nice and soft against your skin, it is never in direct contact with the polyester, which is sandwiched between two layers of organic cotton.
OUR GRS CERTIFICATION: WE ARE RECYCLABLE!
The Global Recycled Standard label certifies that the materials used are recycled: in the case of polyester, from plastic bottles, and for cotton, from cutting waste. GRS also guarantees compliance with social and environmental criteria such as treatment of waste water, the absence of certain toxic additives and respect for working conditions in our partner factories.
The cutting of different pieces to make our products naturally produces scrap material. Since the idea of throwing this material away is out of the question, we have a partner who collects and recycles it into new cotton thread that we use in the manufacture of our tote bags.
OEKO-TEX: TRUST YOUR CLOTHES WITH YOUR EYES CLOSED!
You can’t buy trust. It has to be earned. OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certifies the absence of harmful chemical substances in all products thanks to the “Confidence in textile” label. An independent testing and certification system that ensures that all raw, semi-finished and finished textile products are processed in a way that prioritises:
* The precautionary principle, which prohibits certain potentially harmful substances even where they are not (yet) legally banned
* The absence of chemical substances that are harmful to health and the environment
* A restriction on the lead content of dyes
We are also proud to announce that our Partner is PETA certified. This means that we do not conduct or commission any animal tests on ingredients, formulations, or finished products and pledge never to do so. On top of this, our apparel is made from 100% vegan materials so you can be confident that no harm came to anyone during its creation.
As a communication designer and coach, I live in Immenstaad at Lake Constance. The Bodensoul label stands for my love for Lake Constance or, as the German speaking people say, for the beautiful Bodensee.
The Bodensee is my passion, which I live as a sailor, stand up paddler, diver and especially as a Bodensee resident. I put my work exclusively into fair-made products which I would also wear myself. That's why I only process FairWear products with uncompromising quality.
My credo: Lake Constance connects people.
So Bodensoul is the cult label exclusively and with direct reference to Lake Constance and all the people around this beautiful lake.
Bodensoul is high quality Lake Wear "Made by Locals for Locals" and anyone who loves to wear Bodensoul Lake Wear.
