Sustainable fashion brand, Celtic & Co., has launched an in-house circular service that resoles, repairs, resells and recycles to prolong the life of its customers’ products.
The initiative soft-launched in September, providing Celtic customers an easy alternative to sending their preloved clothing and footwear to landfill.
With its factory in Newquay, Celtic & Co. has expanded its manufacturing capability to include repair and resole efforts.
Zoe Bray, Managing Director, commented: “Through our resole and repair service, we can restore your [sheepskin] boots by replacing the sole, heel and toe panels, giving them a brand-new lease of life, which is something we’ve always offered. We now also offer repairs to holes, tears, and buttons on our woven and knitwear garments, which is all done by the team in our factory here in Cornwall.”
The new resale service, which is run directly through the Celtic & Co. website, offers customers the opportunity to shop for preloved Celtic garments. Additionally, customers can also send in their Celtic garments in exchange for a voucher. Items that don’t meet the quality control requirements for the resale scheme are donated to Royal Trinity Hospice.
Zoe added: “The final ‘recycle; part of our new initiative is something I’m really excited about. We can now transform much-loved knitwear into a pair of Recycled Celtic Knitwear Mules.
“This one-of-a-kind bespoke service is completely unique to Celtic & Co., and something I’m expecting to be popular for gifting particularly around Christmas time.”
