History of Sutton and Tawney
Sutton and Tawney is the creation of Lovisa Pelosi. Despite the unusual name Lovisa grew up in the English countryside honing her love of clothing and fashion from a young age. Having completed a 4-year degree in Fashion marketing at the American Intercontinental University in London her interest in British manufacturing and design intensified. Noticing a gap in the market and the difficulty in finding well made, sustainable and traceable British products she decided to develop her own range of products based on what she loved buying and using. The idea of Sutton and Tawney came about while Lovisa was still at university combining the name of her family home, Sutton Manor, and the area in which it is located, Stapleford Tawney. Having started out focusing her interests on alpaca fleece and fabrics it quickly became apparent the quality and variety of British products was falling well under the radar. For 5 years Lovisa worked in the family businesses gaining much needed experience and giving her time to develop the brand until in 2017 she decided it was time to push Sutton and Tawney out into the world. Wanting to launch an A/W range, cashmere was the go to fabric for Lovisa, having sourced Scottish cashmere yarn the first stages were in place. After a year of intense product development and market research Sutton and Tawney was ready to be showcased.
