Celtic & Co is a luxury British clothing brand after our heart – beautiful contemporary pieces built to endure using the finest, ethically sourced, natural fibres. Companies that put sustainability at their core are hard to come by – so we wanted to introduce you to their philosophy and some of this season’s new pieces.
The Cornish company offer a wide range of luxury footwear, clothing, outerwear and accessories made exclusively from the finest, all-natural fibres. Based in Cornwall, Celtic & Co was founded 27 years ago by husband and wife team Nick and Kath Whitworth, and is now one of the UK’s largest dedicated retailers of luxury sheepskin products. Their iconic sheepskin boots, slippers and flip-flops are true originals and are still handcrafted in Cornwall by their talented workshop staff – the only ones you can buy that are made entirely in the UK from British sheepskin! Celtic fans include the Duchess of Cambridge, Pippa Middleton, Daniel Craig and the cast of Game of Thrones.
Celtic & Co are extremely passionate about the craft of hand making their sheepskin boots, slippers and flip-flops in their workshop by the Cornish coast. The skins they use to manufacture their footwear are from British sheep. Always a by-product of the UK farming industry which operates within the highest regulations for animal welfare, Celtic chooses the finest sheepskin, making their products both ethical and high quality. These skins would otherwise be considered waste and farmers would have to pay for their disposal so they are very proud to support British farmers with their products. All Celtic sheepskin footwear is double stitched with British thread for extra durability and unlike most other sheepskin boots, their boots are made to last and can be re-soled and repaired, ensuring that they keep on looking as good as they feel! Celtic & Co’s clothing collections are designed in the UK and manufactured by trusted partners in the UK wherever possible. They do this to both support British manufacturing and ensure minimum environmental impact.
“Inspired by the beautiful Cornish landscape and created from the finest, natural yarns, our new SS17 collection has been crafted to see you from fresh spring day’s right through to hot holidays in the sun. A few of our favourite items for this spring/summer, all casually elegant and perfect for a weekend away are the Organic Cotton Maxi dress, paired with our super comfortable Beachcomber sandals for warm days out exploring the coast. For the evening, when the air begins to cool, wear a light weight knitwear piece such as the ocean-inspired Fine Knit Slouch Top, or layer up with one of our butter soft leather or suede jackets. Want to kick back instead and enjoy staying in? Lounge in luxury whilst wearing our gorgeous Supersoft Slouch Dress and Sheepskin Mules, also available for men!” – Emma Limn, Press & Social Officer for Celtic & Co.
