Ever since our founding by the brothers Clemens and August in 1841, C&A has been at the forefront of fashion. From making ‘ready-to-wear’ a thing when custom-made was the norm, to popularising miniskirts in the 60s, introducing the Com-bi-kini in the 70s, Bio Cotton in early 2000 and the first Cradle-to-Cradle Gold certified garment in 2017 - we have always evolved with the times, making stylish and quality clothes possible for everyone. And while C&A and the world around us has changed over the decades, one thing has remained the same: our dedication to offering sustainable and quality fashion for the entire family.
Each day we welcome over two million visitors in about 2000 stores across 21 countries in Europe, Brazil, Mexico and China. Today C&A is one of the most enduring and pioneering retailer brands in global apparel. That is because, for us the future is not tomorrow, or next quarter. We think in generations. This also means that we aspire for a future fashion industry that is more innovative and sustainable; one that has moved towards a circular future, and promotes a cycle of use, reuse and rebirth of clothing.
That future will be possible because of our remarkable colleagues. From customer friendly Sales Associates to stylish Designers and expert Merchandise Planners – we all share a common passion and respect for our customers, our planet and each other.
