Hello! I'm Jess, the mum behind the brand. Firstly, thank you for visiting the website and taking the time to have a browse! I'd love to tell you a little bit about the shop and the family behind it.
My husband, Alex and I have 3 - soon to be four - gorgeous children: Teddy who is 4 and is as totally crazy as he is clever and sweet; Louie, aged 3, a kind, affectionate and determined little boy; and 2 year old Erin who quite frankly has us all wrapped around her little finger, but only because she is just too cute! She is the boss in this family, and I think I speak for everyone when I say we're all ok with that.
We live in a beautiful little town in Devon, where we are lucky enough to be able to visit the beach whenever we like and be woken by the sound of cockerels and in the mornings. That is, on the rare occasion that the children don't beat them to it... (!)
Ted & Co. was born after rediscovering my childhood love of sewing. I had made a memory quilt for Erin as she outgrew her newborn clothes, and the sewing bug really took over! It felt amazing to be able to create handmade clothing for all 3 of my babies, and I spent every night from then on designing patterns and sewing. I found small shops through Instagram, and thought for a long time about opening my own business and whether or not it would take off.
I have been very fortunate in that since taking that first step and opening up a little shop, I have had such huge support from customers, who have given me wonderful feedback and continue to do so! Each and every order makes my day and I couldn't be more grateful.
I truly believe that there is something special and unique in what Ted & Co. has become. Whether it is the nature inspired fabric choices, the focus on comfortable and practical design, or the fact that children love to wear and feel relaxed and confident in Ted & Co. Clothing! I love what I do and am so proud to be sharing it all with you.
