Our Story

Did you know that human are the only mammals that delay sleep?

So why do we do this? At Tessie, we love sleep. Everyone does. It gives a sense of calm and relaxation. Launching with our Confetti Jersey Pyjamas and Sheepskin Slippers, we’re all about comfort, style and great sleep. We love a quirky print too, with our first being the Poppy Dog Print. 🐶 This print is named after Poppy, our Airedale, who you’ll see in a photo further down this page.
Our mission is if we can be sustainable, then we will be. Simple as that. Our pyjamas do not cost the earth. (See what we did there??)
Tessie pyjamas are made here in the U.K. to reduce down our carbon footprint. Sustainability is at the forefront of our minds when sourcing our fabrics and trims. That's why our Corozo buttons are made from the Tagua tree rather than plastic and the herringbone drawstring is made from 100% cotton so you can sleep in comfort knowing you are wearing natural fibres.
About Me
Photo of Tessie Owner and her Airedale Terrier Poppy
Firstly, I feel I have imposter syndrome at times as I talk about Tessie as a ‘we’ but I am a ‘me.’
I’m George and I decided to start Tessie as I really love sleep and I may be a pyjama-holic, so it felt like a very natural fit. 
Our brand name Tessie holds a special place in our hearts as it originates from my childhood dog, Tess. She was an Airedale Terrier with a big fluffy beard, little white paws and was my partner in crime growing up. My current Airedale, Poppy, will be featuring in our first print so keep your eyes peeled, especially if you’re a dog lover! This photo is of me and Poppy having all the laughs!
I wish you long and happy sleeps.
