TEDDI JOELLE is rooted in the love of minimal, timeless design, and transparency and intentionality between both maker and consumer.
Teddi Cripps founded TEDDI JOELLE on a whim shortly after moving to Spokane, Washington from Long Beach, California in 2015 with her husband, Ty. What started from a desire to hand-stitch a small collection of minimal, timeless bags for Teddi's personal use, soon evolved into something much larger than she has ever intended.
TEDDI JOELLE organically evolved during her time attending Gonzaga University for her MA in Counseling Psychology, where connection and transparency where both greatly emphasized in her study and personal process at the time. As her love and understanding of counseling and human connection grew, so did her passion for design and creating with intentionality - she soon realized that the two were not isolated, but rather integrated. It was through this realization that the heart of TEDDI JOELLE was birthed and the emphasis on relationship between maker and consumer and thoughtful purchasing emerged.
Knowing the hands behind the goods you are acquiring, especially in the current climate of our fashion industry, is more important than ever. This, paired with our passion for timeless design, is why we do what we do.
