the story of Tallis Brand

"I created Tallis to make luxury yet contemporary fur products, using responsibly sourced materials.  I have cared about sustainability since before spell-check recognised the word.  I have cared about sustainability since before spell-check recognised the word.  I used to ask waiters where their seafood came frombefore anyone asked that question, just to try to get the word out.  I have been passionate about sustainability since the penny first dropped while diving in a school of tuna, so when I founded Tallis I knew that sustainability was going to be integral to the brand.  Fur isn’t for everyone, but for those who want it, we aim to be their go-to brand for trusted products."  -  Lilly Milligan Gilbert, Tallis founder.  

The Tallis is a legendary deer, its name derives from a talisman - thought to bring good luck.  The story told over generations was that a Tallis saved a beleaguered tribe in a snow storm by showing the way to shelter, and since then has always brought safety and comfort to those who have the good fortune to spot him in the snow.​  Tallis is born from this legend.  We believe that what we do should take care of the environment and those around us.
