Antonello Tedde. Luxury eco-conscious fashion - Made in Italy and designed in London UK.
Antonello Tedde's personal story and attachment to his native Italy are made explicit and integral to his designs. This interest is reinforced by a desire to preserve as well as advance craft skills that are at risk of disappearing due to globalisation & mass-produced designs.
Experimenting with Italian hand-woven fabrics resulted in an exclusive 'eco luxury' line that uses sustainable yarns made also from naturally dyed wools and regenerated-recycled cotton.
Antonello eco-friendly products represent not only a duty, but also an intriguing opportunity for responding to the demands of a consumer who asks for quality products, which means quality on an environmental and human level in addition to that of the product itself.
