Launched In 2021, Tessie Makes Sustainable Pyjamas For Women
“Style, comfort, and sleep.” Launched in Oct. 2021 by Georgina Ryan, Tessie creates award-winning, sustainable women’s pyjamas. The products are made in the UK.
Tessie’s pyjamas are made with natural fabrics (for instance, the Tencel in their Poppy Dog Print Pyjamas are made from FSC-certified forests).
Also, instead of using plastic to make their buttons, Tessie makes Corozo buttons (which are also known as vegetal ivory, which comes from the nut of Tagua palm trees) as an alternative. In other words, they’re biodegradable.
The name ‘Tessie’ comes from Georgina’s childhood dog, Tess; an Airedale Terrier with a fluffy beard, and little paws. Her current Airedale, Poppy, is the inspiration behind her first print design, the Poppy Dog Print Pyjamas.
“It made more sense for us to manufacture our sleepwear in Britain, instead of trying to source a factory in India, China, or Europe. One massive plus for us making our clothes in the UK, is that it keeps skills in the country, workers are given fair and ethical wages, we’re paying back into the economy, and it keeps our carbon footprint low,” said Georgina.
