Nautical retailer Seasalt sets course for landlocked Wiltshire

Landlocked Wiltshire is getting its first branch of nautically-themed women’s fashion retailer Seasalt.

The Penzance-born ethical retailer – the first fashion brand to have clothing certified to Soil Association standards – is opening a branch in Marlborough High Street.

Last year the company, which now has 20 branches across the South West of England, picked up a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the category of sustainable development – becoming the first fashion company ever to win a Queen’s Award.

The brand is known for its nautical-themed skirts and dresses, jackets and coats, sweatshirts and raincoats.

Seasalt is moving into premises vacated by countryside-inspired clothing brand Rowlands, which has been bought out of administration by Scotts of Stow, and is now concentrating on its mail order business.
