Our Preloved Communion Wear selling season has come to an end for this year. Thank you so much to all the lovely parents and little girls who came to visit us in our pop up events in Brown Thomas and Arnotts. We are absolutely delighted with the response we have had from parents who were keen to make a sustainable choice for their little one's special day - without compromising on quality and service.

We are so happy that so many little girls are wearing beautiful preloved dresses this year - we wish them a wonderful day with their family and friends.

For those making their First Holy Communion in 2022, KindFolk will hold a Preloved Communion Wear event in Arnotts Department Store - a first of its kind event in one of Ireland's most established department stores.

KindFolk will offer a curated selection of beautiful communion dresses in a range of styles and sizes. All preloved dresses will be dry cleaned and any dress with an imperfection has been sent to a seamstress to be modified so it will be as good as new.

Alongside the dresses, KindFolk will sell a hand-picked selection of boys suits, shirts and accessories e.g. bolero, headpieces, veils 

Our heartfelt thanks to the Innovation + Enterprise Team at Arnotts Department store who are making this exciting event a reality and working behind the scenes to create a beautiful setting for you and your little one to shop for their special day - in a sustainable and more cost effective manner!

Please keep an eye on our Instagram @wearekindfolk for updates on the event, we will be showcasing our dresses as we prepare them - available to view on our Communion Wear highlight. Please contact us on if you have any questions.

We look forward to seeing you there!

In November '21 KindFolk held a preloved communion wear event in The Circular Room, Arnotts Department Store, Dublin 

Customers had the opportunity to bring their dress or suit into Arnotts to be valued by KindFolk and receive the value back on an Arnotts Gift card. The event was a great success - we sourced a beautiful selection of dresses and suits. Thank you to the lovely people who made the trip to Arnotts - keen to extend the lifecycle of their beautiful preloved communion wear, while receiving an Arnotts gift card for their efforts!
