Teddy Edward On Holiday

 Best way to get over holiday blues? Pretend you're still on holiday. Relive the memory! That's what we're doing here anyway. On a side note, they also say to help with those holiday blues you should spend as much time as possible outside. One of the reasons we feel so content and well on holiday is because we're spending all our time in natural daylight rather than artificial light in our homes and work places. So go on, get back outside! Do you really need any more excuses?   Keep reading to see some of our holiday styles wearing Teddy...

How our luxury Brocklesby socks are made

Teddy Edward is based on the Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire border, the ancestral heartland of British textile manufacturing.
