Funeral Wear Blog
As if 2012 wasn’t good enough, this year is set to be even more of a blast with the development of brand new garments to add to our ever increasing range of funeral wear.
In the next few months, keep your eyes peeled for our exclusive new funeral stripe trousers, including a further four unique stripes to add to the collection. On top of this our very own Edwardian style Jacket ideal to coincide with our herringbone formal jacket and tailcoat.
Samples of these will be ready for inspection within the next month so get in touch to see for yourself.
We will continue to grow our range throughout the year, if there is something in particular you want to see then let us know!
With Christmas around the corner, here at Keltic we are all enjoying the festive mood and would like to pass on some cheer to our valued customers and new arrivals.
As our gift to you this year, we are offering a dozen cupcakes to the first 10 new or existing customers who place their funeral wear orders before the 21st of December.
We’ve had a fantastic year meeting a great bunch of people and can’t wait to bring in the New Year with even more new faces. With the SAIF AGM Banquet and The National Funeral Exhibition to look forward to, we predict 2013 to be just as much as a whirlwind as the last.
We would like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. To claim our great Christmas offer, call Claire on 08450666699 to see if you are one of the lucky 10!
This year has flown by at Keltic, we can’t believe we are in the midst of autumn with winter on its way! This month has been a bit of a blur, however from a number of conversations with funeral directors across the uk, we know this is the perfect time to be thinking about your long woollen overcoats and top hats to keep the chill out over the cold months ahead. We are already rushed off our feet with a flood of orders going though for winter uniforms with more on the way!
From an array of comments from our many customers, we have been told our stock funeral overcoats and raincoats are ideal choices for winter, our wool and cashmere blend provides amazing warmth and comfort whilst achieving the smart look required for funeral directors. And in case we haven’t had enough rain this year, our funeral raincoat offers great protection from the elements.
Our range of winter accessories are also flying off the shelves, our top hats, gloves and knitwear are all great choices for added warmth. As well as our stock funeral wear ranges, our made to order specials have been increasingly popular this month. We can design and create the ideal uniforms unique to your firm for a personal touch this winter.
For further guidance on your winter uniform choices this year then talk to Claire on 08450666699 on how we can make this achievable.
Claire Manning of Keltic Clothing, one of SAIF’s newest members, tells us about her whirlwind month on funeral wear.
Wow! What a month! Having completed the brochure for our brand new range of funeral wear, I’ve been on the phone non-stop talking to Funeral Directors the length and breadth of the UK about their clothing needs! And boy are they keeping me busy!
As well as supplying hundreds and hundreds of traditional style striped trousers and black jackets, there are also some really different things happening out there, from navy blue uniforms to gold trimmed frockcoats!
We’re bringing on board an average of 10 new Funeral Directors every week, and they’re feeding back to us that they’re saving between 20 and 30% on their clothing budgets by moving to Keltic Clothing’s one stop funeral wear shop!
Other feedback we’ve received is that people love the fact they can get standard items like tailcoats, striped trousers and herringbone jackets delivered next day from stock – gone are the days of waiting weeks and weeks for delivery! People also love our wide range of ladies uniforms available – something that wasn’t easily available before we introduced it.
If any Funeral Directors out there would like to know what all the fuss is about, just give me a call on 08450 66 66 99 or email email@example.com.
Louise Murcott of Keltic Clothing, one of SAIF’s newest members, tells us about their exciting new top-to-toe next-day service
We’ve been working on our brand new range of Funeral Wear for just over 12 months now, and are so excited to launch it that we’re fit to burst! As one of the UK’s largest corporate clothing suppliers, we’re used to launching ranges, but the excitement of bringing something new and exciting to our customers never wears off.
At Keltic, we never launch a new range unless we can offer something that’s unique. With Funeral Wear, we’re offering three key points of difference. First, we’re a one-stop-shop, supplying every aspect of Funeral Wear for both male and female staff from stock, with next day delivery. Second, we offer a full UK-wide measuring service. Third, our prices are extremely competitive.
Keltic Clothing remains family-run and owned, with over 30 years’experience in the corporatewear industry. We’ve built our business on very high quality and exceptional personal service, with every client having a single point of contact. We’re proud to be members of SAIF, an outstanding organisation that have been so supportive throughout this process.
To pay back SAIF for all their support, we’re offering free collection and delivery of samples to all SAIF members off their first order.
So please call me on 08450 66 66 99 to claim your offer or request our hot-off-the-press brochure. Make sure you mention that you’re a fellow SAIF member!

2011 isn’t a leap year, but for Keltic, one of the UK’s largest staff uniform suppliers, 2011 marks a giant leap forward.
When we first started ten years ago, we were one of the first few companies in our industry to promote our business with a website. Many of our competitors didn’t have websites or email addresses – doesn’t that sound strange now!
I spent a long time with a university friend designing what we thought was the best website out there, not only showing our cutting edge clothing ranges but crucially giving useful tips on things like ‘how to choose the right uniform for the type of job role your staff are doing’.
Our brand new website aims to take this idea and bat it out of the park. Not only do we now have the largest range in the UK, we aim to be a one-stop-resource for corporate clothing information.
We’ll be posting regularly to this blog, facebook and twitter pages, as well as updating our news section with press articles and emailing our newsletter to subscribers, who get a chance to win a suit when they sign up.
We see our website as a two-way street and really encourage you to comment on our blog, our facebook page and on twitter. In the near future we’ll be recruiting field testers, who’ll have the opportunity to test our exciting new garments in exchange for providing us with their feedback on our blog and facebook pages – ‘like‘ our facebook page now to be notified of availability.
We hope you enjoy our new website featuring our great range of staff uniforms, it certainly is extremely exciting for all of us here at Keltic, and we can’t wait to hear from you.
