Teuf (pronounced toof) is a lifestyle brand owned by myself, Shanna Lee, founded at the start of 2016 in honour of my mother - Terri Lee (Teufel) McGlynn. I began the early stages of this brand during the last few months of her life and was able to tell her some of the ideas I had for it before she passed. I dedicate this brand to her and her life, as she is my main source of inspiration, hoping to spread a little of her light to all who choose to support Teuf.
Creating is something I love and Teuf is an avenue in which I can create not only for others, but for myself! In looking for screen printing products and ink, it was essential to me that they be vegan and eco friendly. I create all the designs myself, typically hand drawn. I burn the images onto screens personally, and hand print them one by one in my PA home with an enormous amount of love. Fairly new to Teuf is the addition of hand sewn chain stitch embroidery featured on some of the newer items and fully handmade cut & sew pieces, also done by me! All of the clothing items are printed/embroidered on sweatshop free garments & everything I make will always be vegan friendly. Because everything is made by hand, minor differences between items will occur, making them unique!
I sincerely appreciate everyone who makes a purchase, posts a photo, writes kind words, and supports my brand in any way. When you buy from Teuf you have the assurance that you are supporting a mother, a family, someone real and relatable. A portion of each purchase gets donated to varying charities. Some past charities that donations were made to were: International Animal Rescue, Aardvark Animal Rescue and the Sacred Stone Camp's legal defense fund for their peaceful protest of the DAPL in Standing Rock, Planned Parenthood, Overcoming MS, Rancho Relaxo & other animal rescues. Announcements of which charity your purchase is currently helping are always made on our instagram @_teuf, along with shop updates, behind the scene peeks, and insight on shipping & order status. I am a one woman show and not only hand print, embroider and handle each order myself, but also fulfill all the packaging and shipping single handedly from my door to yours. I thank you immensely for your support!
RIP Mom, 10/31/58 - 2/16/16
