Teija Eilola


A long-time YBD Find, inspired by Nordic folklore, founded in London. The Teija label echoes their Finnish roots, with minimalist individuality.

Teija is characterised by a strong sense of silhouette that transforms practical purpose into luxury. Quirky but functional. Striking but wearable. A real winner.
