Antonello Tedde.  Luxury eco-conscious fashion - Made in Italy

Antonello Tedde's personal story and attachment to his native Sardinia 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 Sardinian hand-woven fabrics resulted in an exclusive 'eco luxury' line that uses sustainable yarns made also from naturally dyed Sardinian 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.

Antonello Tedde. Eco-conscious fashion

Antonello Tedde luxury eco-conscious fashion ranges are designed in London - UK and hand crafted in Sardinia - Italy.

Materials and production processes are carefully selected to offer you the most exclusive eco-luxuries.

  • Manufacturing techniques. All the fabrics used are hand produced on traditional looms, this tend to use less energy. Every factory and workshop has a few fabrics on display, weaving is generally done to order. As well as the classical styles, fabrics can be done in any design and in any colour a client submits.

  • Local natural wool . These fibres come from organic farmed sheep (conventional farming is a huge consumer of non-renewable fossil fuels. Sardinian farmers have been using organic farming for generations, this tend to use less energy).

  • Wools dyed locally with Sardinian plants. Antonello Tedde exclusive 'luxury eco' line of accessories also uses sustainable yarns made with Sardinian sheep wool dyed locally with Sardinian plants.

  • Regenerated Cotton. Hand-woven recycled and regenerated cotton yarns are also widely used in the Antonello collections.

  • Production processes. Fabrics and handbags are hand produced in ethically managed factories - workshops are entirely managed by women: all the companies are inspected regularly by government officials to check compliance to European legislation.

  • Recycled linings and care bags. Antonello Tedde when possible uses linings made from beautiful ends of rolls and off cuts recycled new fabrics from Sardinian textiles factories. These fabrics would usually end up in skips and landfill, to be incinerated.

Shedding light on Italian textiles and putting localised Italian handiwork and the importance of its preservation back on the map, the designer prides himself on only working with Italian experts in fashion manufacturing and ultimately bringing Sardinian production methods back into the global consciousness.

Researching into the old weaving techniques and visiting Sardinian weaving workshops, Antonello Tedde has developed a range of homeware with the fabrics his grandmother and his mother used. Most of these products are made with the technique of knot or grain work known as "pibiones".
