THE STONE COMPASS BADGE
What is striking about all Stone Island products is that the logo, the wind rose, in the form of a compass is clearly visible. The inspiration for this logo comes from the maritime themes of the writer Joseph Conrad. He often used the words "stone" and "island" in his book. Almost all tops have the green and yellow logo on the left sleeve. The logo is removable because it is attached by means of buttons. The Stone Island pants have the badge on the back pocket. With a Stone Island jacket, the label is visible on the right sleeve. The handy thing about the detachable logo is that you can give your garment a more formal look by removing the patch.
LAB & LIFE OF STONE ISLAND
Every item from Stone Island can be traced back to the laboratory in Italy. The laboratory can therefore be called the cradle of every Stone Island garment. The LAB is constantly researching fibers and fabrics to make special clothing. Stone Island has already developed many unique materials that are used in the clothing. What about fabrics that change at a different temperature or special super-light materials from which coats are made? The lab is therefore an important pillar for Stone Island. Very special, but the clothing must of course also be practical in everyday life. That is why the second pillar of Stone Island is that wearing the clothing must provide a real experience and must be practical to use. It is not without reason that the designers are inspired by uniforms and workwear from everyday life.
