“@SarahJLonsdale: #upcycled, #home-made, #renewable - Christmas gifts are kind to the planet @Telegraph http://t.co/LOj7B8hRGq” Thank you!
So, guess who got a nice little mention in the national press with one of @victoriamacken's photos too? http://t.co/egPecKmctx #excited ;0)
Turtle Doves is a cheerful group of Shropshire dwellers who make once-loved garments into ethical clothing. We have been operating as a recycled clothing store since November 2009, recycling cashmere fabrics & other knits we buy into gorgeous Eco-friendly, fashionable items of clothing, which are useful and beautiful too!
Although we’re a cottage industry, we have managed to spread the word about what we do. We have customers all over the UK and farther afield too. Our recycled fingerless gloves have been seen as far away as Australia, and we know of one Hug which is doing a sterling duty in Kazakhstan! Our fingerless gloves are also now available in some lovely shops, click here for the list of stockists.
Our recycled clothes are all unique (that’s the nature of recycling!) so our stock is a kaleidoscope of colour, which is always changing. If you like what you see but would like a particular colour or fabric we make to order too, please ask! If you have a 100% cashmere jumper you no longer wear, click here to see how you swap it for a FREE pair of cashmere Turtle Doves wrist warmers.
We’d love to hear what you think of our ethical clothing shop, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us if you have any comments or ideas for us. If you’d like to join the Turtle Doves team, please register and we’ll keep in touch with you from time to time with news & offers.
