Lilly founded Tallis almost a decade ago, with the goal of creating sustainable products and promoting a responsible, eco-conscious lifestyle.
We asked her about her experience and memories as the creator of Tallis:
"It has always been, and continues to be, an amazing journey. I look back at the last few years and can’t believe the things we’ve achieved. Some of the people I’ve met, the meetings I’ve walked into, I can’t believe it was all part of this company I started from my kitchen table .
My son Rex was born in 2015 and, as Tallis was still starting out, he came along for the ride. I have pictures of him in the stock room lying on a comfy box of cashmere and playing with his toys. He came to Paris Fashion Week when he was seven weeks old, so Tallis is in his blood.
My daughter Oleander came along in 2018 and I am now expecting number three. My favourite moments are when the children talk about Tallis and how we must all take care of the world. Whether it's osmosis or just lots of boring repetition from Mum, the Tallis philosophy for eco living is second nature to them.
Sustainability didn’t used to be considered in the way we ran the world, but it is now. Now is our moment."
