The company pioneered circular fashion from the start, using only natural, renewable and biodegradable materials to make its clothes, according to a press release.
“We’re thrilled to join Thrift+. It’s a great initiative that encourages people to refresh their wardrobe in a sustainable way, giving new life to their clothes, while earning rewards and having the chance to support a chosen charity. All our customers have to do to get involved is add a Thrift+ bag to their order with us, fill it with their unwanted clothes, and return the bag to Thrift+ for free. With every sale, they will earn credits which can be donated to charity, spent on second-hand clothing or redeemed for vouchers to spend at Celtic,” Celtic Managing Director, James Williamssaid in a press release.
UK-based sustainable fashion brand, Celtic, has joined the mission to save as much quality clothing as possible from landfill by teaming up with second-hand clothing website, Thrift+. Founded in 1990, Celtic’s new partnership with Thrift+ reinforces the brand’s commitment to circular fashion by making it easier to recycle unwanted clothing from its customers.
“Our collections are full of timeless styles designed to last a lifetime. Everything from our yarn to our buttons and labels is chosen to have the least possible impact on the planet. Not only does this help minimize pollution, but it also makes our products safe for people with synthetic fiber allergies,” williams added.
“We also handcraft our signature sheepskin shoes in our own factory in Newquay, Cornwall, using sheepskin sourced from UK sheep, keeping production miles to a minimum. These skins would otherwise be considered waste and farmers would have to pay for their disposal, so it’s great to be able to support UK farmers in the process. We create all of our products to the highest standards, but beloved garments can show signs of wear, which is why we offer a repair and resoling service for our sheepskin boots to reduce waste and extend their life instead of buying new ones,” he said. mentioned.
