male and female legs with slippers on CELTIC & CO.
Celtic & Co. has been crafting sheepskin boots and slippers by hand in its Cornish workshop in Newquay since 1990, using 100% premium British sheepskin to create long lasting, luxurious, sustainable footwear. The attention to detail and expert craftsmanship has helped to give Celtic & Co. a name synonymous with high quality. The brand proudly supports British farmers, transforming what would otherwise be considered waste into its sustainable footwear.

One of the planet's most versatile and natural fibres, sheepskin is used every day in the workshop. The sustainable material is known for its temperature-regulating properties, providing comfort and warmth to Celtic & Co. customers. As a result of the cold British climate, British sheepskin is thicker, warmer, and more durable than the Australian sheepskins used by other manufacturers. Available in a selection of styles and colours for men, women, and children, Celtic& Co. sheepskin boots and slippers make ideal gifts which are also Made in Britain.

Celtic & Co. also offers a repair and resole service for its sheepskin boots, making this footwear a sustainable choice which will last for many years.

green candle wax in a green tin PINTAIL CANDLES
The Eden of the North may be one way to describe the fabulous fragranced candles of Pintail Candles, but it also refers to the recent announcement of their, soon to be, new neighbour. The famous Eden Project is heading for Morecambe Bay, just across the water from the little fishing village of Flookburgh, home to Pintail Candles.

It is a lovely part of the country andone which has inspired many of the fine fragrances and ranges of Pintail Candles. In fact, the company name is taken from the beautiful pintail duck, which nests in the surrounding wetlands and marshes. In honour of the new Eden Project, Pintail Candles is celebrating its collection of fragrant florals inspired by the great British countryside.

2022 sees the launch of two new quintessentially British floral fragrances. Camomile & Clover is a leisurely stroll across a luxuriant wildflower lawn on a summer's day. While a cottage garden is brought to life with Blue Lilac & Lily, a drifting floral fragrance entwining the rich powdery tones of blue lilac with the heady scent of Stargazer lilies. Offering a contemporary twist on our native flora is an invigorating Wild Rose & Rhubarb and an energising Avocado & Nettle.

All candles are individually hand poured in the traditional way, ensuring a beautiful finish. Ingredients and materials are sourced as close to home as possible and even the candle tins are Made in Britain. The fragrances are available in several candle ranges including the Triple Wick Candles and iconic Paint Pot Candles, with retail prices starting at under £6.
