The art of gifting the TD way (and other useful info)

At Turtle Doves we hold some core values. Everything we make needs to be beautifully made, practical and have a low impact on the environment. Great qualities in any gift in our humble opinion. 

So, if you're gifting a Turtle Doves product here's how to enjoy the experience and make sure you're the most popular gifter around the tree this year!

What would you make? The Customisation Pack launch...

What would you make? The Customisation Pack launch...

One of our company mottos is 'necessity is the mother of invention' and many of our products seem to arrive with us in unexpected ways. This all started when we were thinking about the effect lockdown was having, especially with regard to some having more time than usual. We honestly didn't know how this new idea would be received and I have to admit to being a bit nervous... but boy, did those who joined in show us what they thought of it...

A peek inside - how we make new from old...

We were delighted when we saw our cashmere baby blankets near the top of the Made for Mums list of '10 of the best cool but warm baby blankets' last week. Our baby products are cute practical and are really popular as birth gifts. For us they do another job too though; it's all about being as sustainable as possible and here's how.

The idea is to commit not to buy new clothes in September and to stick to second hand if you need anything. Raising awareness of the garment waste we contribute to is definitely a good thing but how can we do more?

Where in the world has your Turtle Doves cashmere been?!

Where in the world has your Turtle Doves cashmere been?!

Hi all! It’s quite warm in the studio today and I’m trying to provide motivation for the team while we miss out on the sun, perhaps you can help?

Through the years we've had the chance to imagine our products in some pretty far-flung places. From Turtle Doves gloves going on holiday in the Norwegian Fjords to ponchos on Australian winter breaks. We've shipped gifts to grandmothers in Azerbaijan and to loved ones in Archangel...
