Teddy Edward, the home of exclusive, British-made clothing with a contemporary twist. We design and produce our entire collection of luxury women’s and men’s clothing and accessories right here in Great Britain, using only the finest materials and most skilled artisans available on this fair isle. The Teddy Edward name has fast become synonymous with British-made excellence, so make a statement with high-end designs that seamlessly take you from country chic to city glam and right back again.
Here at Teddy Edward, we have a simple ethos. Our brand is based entirely on provenance, meaning that we design, source and manufacture all our luxury clothing and accessories right here in Great Britain. No exceptions.
From initial concept to final product, Teddy Edward values the importance of maintaining age-old British skills, as well as contributing to the ethical and environmental benefits that come with being British-made clothing.
Always made in Great Britain:
To make the luxury products that Teddy Edward is renowned for, we have travelled the length of the nation to find the very best artisans, suppliers and manufacturers the country has to offer. We utilise the talent of skilled workers in:
Birmingham – Many of our tops are made in the metropolitan buzz of Britain’s second city.
Buckinghamshire – In the home counties we found one of the best manufacturers to produce much of our collection.
Lancashire - The Red Rose county is where we source luxurious fine velvets and our special stretch moleskin.
Leicestershire – Renowned for its hosiery and knitwear, we get our luxurious cotton, jersey fabrics and cosy alpaca socks from the county.
London - All our shirts are made by the very best tailors in the capital, lending to each piece a crisp, city edge.
Nottinghamshire - A county with a rich creative history, finding skilled workers to make our luxury buttons and lace here was easy. Our unique high-build embroidery is also crafted in a small village in the county.
Boosting local employment and skills:
We are proud to have created a network of talented artisans and manufacturers who not only share our Great British ethos but love to work on making our high-end designs a reality.
The heritage of British manufacturing is rich, but in recent years most fashion brands have moved their production overseas. We are different. We are committed to investing in home-grown skills and talent to ensure that the history of British fashion lives on and the people of our country have access to even more worthwhile jobs.
Fair wages for all:
Teddy Edward believes in paying fair wages for a fair day’s work, so the talented artisans we work with all benefit from proper rates of pay.
We are committed to producing high-end, luxury products which we know could not be achieved by paying lesser skilled workers lower rates of pay to do the same job.
No child labour and exploitation:
Often when fashion brands move their production abroad, they risk using factories where exploited, mistreated or illegal workers are employed.
By committing to design and produce 100% of our clothing and accessories here in Great Britain, we know that child labour and exploitation can be avoided, giving you luxury fashion with zero ethical concerns.
Lower carbon footprint:
Fast fashion is having a hugely negative effect on the environment, so by investing in high-quality Teddy Edward pieces that truly last, you are mitigating the environmental impact of the fashion industry.
We make our fantastic products and source all materials right here in Great Britain, meaning that our carbon footprint is much lower than brands which source their products from the other side of the world.
Imagine being out on your horse taking in the glorious British countryside when inspiration for the best idea of your career strikes? Well, that’s exactly what happened to our founder, Stephen. He had stopped for a moment to admire the impeccable design of the clothing his riding companion was wearing, and wondered if there was a way to combine the traditions of country clothing with the contemporary flair of city attire. It was at that moment a new luxury British brand was born – Teddy Edward.
Taking design notes from his inspiring horse ride and pairing it with his love of British artisan craftsmanship and over 25 years in the fashion industry, Stephen set about designing an exclusive collection of British-made clothing, aimed at women and men who aspire to live the good life.
Stephen’s designs have evolved from an initial idea into a brilliantly modern, distinctively British collection of clothing and accessories, which show off his creative style and passion to make luxury pieces that work seamlessly across both country and city life.
It was Stephen’s Grandfather, Teddy Edward who influenced the name and heritage of the brand. He was a fine gentleman, a hero and a fitting inspiration for a company based on the core values of British quality and craftsmanship.
To live up to the Teddy Edward name and honour Stephen’s Grandfather himself, our ethos is simple. We proudly support and celebrate Great British tradition and aim to create key pieces for a new generation of customer who aspires to wear high-quality, luxury clothing with a contemporary twist.
Teddy Edward has been built on a set of core values:
- Designed in Nottinghamshire, made only in Great Britain - We are very proud to be champions of British manufacturing, and commit to only making our exclusive collection of clothing right here in this country. This includes sourcing our high-quality materials and finding fantastic artisans to work with on our products. Not only does this give our brand a truly British edge, it also means you can be confident of exactly where your new garment was made. We are passionate about our authentically British brand and know you will be too.
- Distinctively British – We’re proud of our heritage, so the Teddy Edward collection is designed to be distinctively British whilst oozing that fresh, contemporary edge. Let Teddy Edward take you seamlessly from country chic to city glam in an instant, allowing you live your Great British life with ease.
- High-end luxury - Each of Teddy Edward’s unique and versatile designs is crafted in Great Britain from beautiful and hardwearing fabrics of the highest quality. Each fabric is personally handpicked from some of the country’s finest manufacturers by our Creative Director, Stephen, meaning you will experience true luxury when wearing any Teddy Edward piece. As well as being luxurious, the fabrics we use effortlessly keep up with your hectic lifestyle thanks to unparalleled quality and durability.
- Totally exclusive - On average, no more than 200 pieces of each design are crafted, so you are guaranteed to be wearing something really exclusive.
