Creating slow moments of cosy bliss
Hello and welcome to Teppi, we're so happy you've found us!
Founded by us, two friends Ella + Lydia, Teppi is a Scandinavian inspired lifestyle store, based in Staffordshire, UK.
The idea for Teppi was first planted after an inspiring trip to Iceland in 2017. We were left so in awe of the breathtaking landscapes, the minimalist design and the slow living lifestyle, that we knew somehow we had to bring a little piece of the Icelandic experience back home with us. Since then the idea has been growing and evolving until we finally decided to take the plunge and launch Teppi in 2020.
Here at Teppi you can expect to find a beautiful collection of sustainable homewares, handmade ceramics and ethically sourced gifts - designed to help you live slower, appreciate little moments and enjoy the simplicity of the Scandinavian lifestyle.
'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!
