Forsyth And Tedd

Forsyth and Tedd was founded by Mel Forsyth, and her Spanish rescue dog, Tedd. Based at Faraday Mill in Plymouth, Devon, Forsyth and Tedd is an eclectic emporium for both dogs and dog-owners (or dog-lovers, like us!) alike. With a shop downstairs and a sewing unit upstairs, it doesn't get more local than this.
