Inside the Tutu Factory

We are a small, home run family business in the Midlands, England.

The Tutu Factory was founded by a mother and daughter several years ago. At first it was as a hobby for some extra income and then just over 2 years ago we decided to go for it and become an official business.

All of our items are hand made to order with love by ourselves in our home environment. The sewing room and cutting studio are at the bottom of our garden. Our office, photo shoot area, drying room and design room can all be located in our spare room and my bedroom. Our living room has been taken over with cardboard boxes and it I'm sure another room of the house will be taken over at some point this year.

One of the founders, Wendy (mother of the team) comes from generations of seamstresses growing up in a mining village. In our family, you don't learn how to sew it just comes naturally! Wendy has years of experience in many factories sewing a huge variety of items. But the majority of her work has been for large lingerie companies such as Ann Summers and Jigsaw as well as international club wear.

Luby, the daughter of the founders earned a distinction level AVCE in Art&Design and then advanced on to a BA(Hons) in Fashion&Textiles as well as over 12 years retail experience.

This gave us a great background in making up our tutus. We've learnt a lot a long the way and hope to carry on doing so! It's an area that we sort of fell into accidentally but obviously it was meant to be!

Due to the large increase in demand of our tutus welcomed 2 new members to our Tutu Factory Team in 2014 (something I never even imagined we would need to do!) Dawn, another machinist and Laura who is our administrator. Both, who are our cousins and live in the same village. Any photo shoots we do with live models are usually family and close friends so we really do keep things as a family run business!
