Celtic & Co is an award winning wool based sustainable clothing and homeware business specialising in ethically sourced fashion.

Founded over 30 years ago in Cornwall, Celtic & Co’s heritage and expertise is in crafting sheepskin to produce slippers, boots and accessories. It has since expanded its offering to include a range of enduring contemporary pieces using the finest natural fibres. Capitalising on its mature e-commerce platform, the business has strong and growing international customer base.

In February 2021 Souter Investments backed Ben Barnett of retail investment vehicle, All Good Things to complete a buyout of Celtic & Co. Founders Nick and Kath Whitworth will continue to be involved with the business with James Williams becoming the new CEO. The new management and board expertise will allow Celtic to accelerate investment into product volumes, new product development and third party retailer relationships.
