Do you want to make the fashion world more sustainable with your designs? Be like me and become a pioneer. At C&A!

When I see people on the street wearing my clothes, that's a special moment for me. I feel like I’ve succeeded.
“C&A takes full responsibility for its products and communicates this very openly. Whether it’s about the people, the environment or trading – everything is managed with a great deal of consideration. Here, C&A does an outstanding job as a pioneer within the fashion industry. As a designer I also have a lot of responsibility within this process. I am like a detective, looking for materials from suppliers that meet our standards. Items that don’t fit our philosophy are not meant for our stores. Beyond that, of course I am always looking for new trends that blend into our collections. And as there are always new developments, it never gets boring. I look forward to every single day at C&A.”

Whitney (33), designer of woven blouses

For almost 180 years, C&A has been designing fashion for the world's largest catwalk: the high street.

Quality, safety, wearability - C&A sets standards in a range of areas!


    We’re a big patchwork family. At C&A everyone can contribute ideas and will be heard. At C&A we work together: the dog-eat-dog mentality has no place here.
  • Creativity

    Passion and a lot of work go into all our clothes. People don't just do the bare minimum here – we all want to achieve the best possible result for our designs and for our customers.
  • Quality

    Naturally we only use the best materials that feel great against your skin. But our concept of quality starts much earlier with the development of the cuts and designs. We don’t just make fashion for catwalk models – we make fashion for all ages, heights, and shapes!

    If you want to shop at C&A you can do it anytime and anywhere, whether in one of our close to 1,500 stores throughout Europe or simply by accessing our online shop via your smartphone or laptop.
  • Fairness

    We produce clothes at affordable prices. If you shop at C&A, you get reliable, modern fashion that lasts longer than a season. We also recognise our employees’ contribution to our success and show our appreciation with a range of financial and other benefits.

    We are a modern family business and as such, we not only sell timeless cuts, but also offer stylish fashion trends. This is also evident in our day-to-day work: innovation and creativity are at the heart of other areas such as IT, marketing and management.
  • Versatility

    From hats to socks, we dress all types of people, from head to toe and for every occasion. And the tasks involved in creating these products are just as diverse. At C&A, everyone can find meaning in their daily work.

    Not only do we celebrate our successes, we also reflect regularly on our processes. We are always striving to improve, and we work towards this goal as a team.
  • Multiculturalism

    C&A is a global company. This is reflected in the diversity of our designs, as well as internally in our day-to-day work. Interactions with our colleagues around the world are a fount of inspiration for our processes, projects and ideas, and are a natural part of the working day for everyone at C&A.

The future offers countless opportunities - don't just use them, help create them!

  • Now

    Design and creativity are in the spotlight, defining C&A’s current collections and day-to-day work.
  • Soon

    By 2020, two-thirds of our collections will consist of sustainable materials such as 100% organic cotton.
  • Future

    We want to embed the regenerative system of the circular economy in the fashion industry. Our vision: a world where clothes are not disposable, but instead are turned into new products at the end of their life cycles.

    We care about the environment – that's why we are now the largest buyer of organic cotton, for everyone from babies to baby boomers.
  • First retailer worldwide to offer T-shirts with C2C Gold certification

  • Affordable clothing for everyone

    This is what C&A has been known for since the beginning – and it is still our top priority.
  • "We Take It Back" programme

    In collaboration with our partners PACKMEE and I:CO, we take back packages of well-preserved clothes and shoes to give them a new life.
