Magic Number Three, SaltaireMagic Number Three, the ethical clothing boutique at No.2 Victoria Road in Saltaire Village, has opened doors again.

‘We had thought to be moving premises’ says owner-manager Georgia Mack ‘but we’ve decided that Saltaire is a good place to be based and we’re really happy to be staying. The heritage of Saltaire Village echoes what Magic Number Three is about: good working conditions, building communities and fair wages for people who produce clothing’.

The ethical nature of the brands sold at Magic Number Three means that the products are made under fair trade conditions. Many garments and accessories are made with high quality natural fabrics and sometimes recycled materials. They have also sold clothes and gloves made with alpaca, the wool that Sir Titus Salt famously imported to the UK. Alpacas are now being reared in the UK and their luxuriously soft wool is woven and knitted in this country. Magic Number Three is looking into a range of scarves made with alpaca from a North Yorkshire farm, traditionally loom-woven in Halifax.

‘Although our goal is to develop our online store we are really pleased to know that many people here value our place in the Saltaire community. We’re now selling worldwide with customers across Europe as well as in the United States and Australia, but at the core of our business is the principle of supporting and celebrating local communities and local skills’.
