A sustainable fashion brand will open a pop up store in Glasgow this weekend ahead of COP26. 

The Glasgow-born brand Kleurstof Apparel is coming to St Enoch shopping centre after winning the retail space in a competition. 

The brand uses greener methods to create and package its products. Their T-shirts are 100% organic cotton, PETA approved and decorated using eco-friendly inks.

Kleurstof also use biodegradable poly and kraft mailers to package their items, and donate a portion from the sale of every item to planting trees. 

Kleurstof's creative director Kieran Lalley said: “Opening a pop-up shop in Glasgow is a key part of our ambitious 10-year plan set out in early 2021.

"To have achieved that already in such an exciting retail space at St. Enoch in the heart of the city is unbelievable. 

"We’ve been selling our products exclusively online until now so to be able to finally showcase them in our home city of Glasgow is a massive step forward for us.”  Glasgow Times:

The brand was started by a group of university friends in Glasgow who wanted to make stylish designs while also protecting the environment. 

Kieran added: “We hope through our pop-up we can keep building a community of like-minded people who appreciate quality streetwear but are also becoming more conscious of the impact of their fashion habits on the environment. Our mission is to promote outfit repeating.”

St. Enoch general manager Anne Ledgerwood says: “We are committed to countering our own environmental impact and supporting sustainability initiatives at St. Enoch. We are thrilled to provide a space for homegrown start-up Kleurstof Apparel, the deserved winners of our recent retail pop-up competition. 

“We hope to provide a platform for the emerging streetwear brand to not only showcase their eco-friendly clothing but to also communicate their strong message about sustainable fashion here in Glasgow.” 

Kleurstof Apparel will be at St Enoch on October 23 and 24.
