About

Turtle Doves is a British design and manufacturing company, specialising in using post-consumer textile waste to create beautiful new garments & accessories.  We passionately believe in paying our employees a healthy wage whilst keeping our prices competitive through clever design and avoiding middlemen. #

All our products are recycled… partly because, like most people, we are concerned about how we use the earth’s resources.  However, I have also always loved old things; I think that they have more character than new and I find the ‘worn in’ feel of pre-owned fabric irresistible.  Although we are not above being given donations (friends do pass on the odd jumper) and we offer a 'free gloves in exchange for your jumper' service, we buy woollens from charity shops & textile merchants (who in turn buy their waste textiles from charity shops) so as a business we know that part of the money we are spending on fabric is going back into the charitable sector.
