Nick and Kath Whitworth, founders of Celtic & Co, a premium womenswear, menswear and homeware brand specialising in sustainable natural fibre products perfect for staycation honeymoons and minimoons in the region, are thrilled to announce that their Cornish company has been awarded its second Queen's Award for International Trade in three years. The award highlights a real Cornish success story.
Based in Newquay, the company has just entered its 30th year of trading. They manufacture sheepskin boots and slippers by hand in their Newquay-based workshop and source luxury clothing from British and European manufacturers, keeping their supply chain as close to home as possible. Nick was keen to highlight the team effort behind the award, from his staff and all of the suppliers and customers that support them. He tells us, "All of us at Celtic & Co are so immensely proud of this achievement and I thank everybody involved in this team effort. To receive a second Queen's Award has to be one of our most memorable achievements and is a real credit to all of our hardworking staff who should all feel justifiably proud. A Queen's award is one of the most prestigious business awards in Great Britain and could only be achieved not just by all of us here at Celtic & Co, but also because of all the contributions from our suppliers and of course all of our customers."
Kath was keen to highlight how the business supports the local economy, built around a long-term, sustainable approach. She adds, "currently our business model is to run all overseas operations from our UK-based head office here in Cornwall. We utilise the knowledge and experience of our logistics partners to ensure that we are exporting goods in the most efficient and cost-effective way for our customers and the business. By operating in this way we are keeping employment opportunity and supplier partnerships in the UK - supporting our local economy. As we grow our international business we will continue to look at innovative ways to use natural fibres to create long-lasting, timeless pieces that help transform us from a throwaway society into one that truly values sustainability."
