The prestigious awards allow winning companies to use the Queen’s Award emblem on their marketing materials, like packaging, ads and website, for five years.

Every April, hundreds of UK businesses are recognised for leading industry with their products and entries.

“All of us here at Celtic & Co are so immensely proud of this achievement and I thank everybody involved in this team effort. Receiving this Queen’s Award has to be one of our most memorable experiences since we started so long ago back in 1990,” commented Nick Whitworth, co-founder of the brand, which focuses on natural fibres.

Established in Newquay, Cornwall almost thirty years ago, the brand’s sustainably produced and eco-friendly products are sold across the globe.

“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,” said Kath Whitworth.

“As we grow our international business we will continually 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 values sustainability.”

Celtic & Co is stocked in a number of independent retailers in the UK and abroad, including Restoration Yard in Scotland, the Four Seasons in Somerset, The British Shop in Germany, Lines Ltd in Japan and KAA170 in Belgium.
