Finding beauty in simplicity
Hello and welcome to Teppi, we're so happy you've found us!
We are Ella & Lydia, founders of Teppi - a Scandinavian inspired lifestyle store, based in Staffordshire, UK.
Teppi's conception evolved from an inspiring trip to Iceland, where the slow living lifestyle and beautifully simple design, completely stole our hearts.
On returning home, we knew that somehow we had to find a way to incorporate this wonderful lifestyle into our everyday lives, which is where Teppi was born.
Teppi is a curation and celebration of simple, cosy moments, a way of encouraging a less is more approach, and finding joy in the little things we so often overlook.
We hope our collection of sustainable homewares, handmade ceramics and ethically sourced gifts, will help you welcome the Scandinavian lifestyle into your homes, and find a little slow living inspiration along the way.
'Teppi' is the Icelandic word for blanket.
For so many of you, the name ‘Teppi’ is probably a bit of a mystery. For us it’s the word that perfectly sums up our trip to Iceland, as well as being very fitting to the character of our brand.
‘Teppi’ is the Icelandic word for ‘blanket’, which happens to be a particular souvenir that we both determinedly brought back, despite having to sacrifice many items in the process!
These gorgeous wool blankets are the very essence of Iceland, they encapsulate the ideals of simple folk living as well as holding the elements of comfort, cosiness, and a longing for home.
These blankets are such a special reminder of happy memories in Iceland, and we’re delighted to have been able to represent this in our brand name - Teppi.
We’re always using our blankets in our photographs, so keep your eyes open for the next time they crop up!
