Created By The Ridleys - Thermos flask

Harris Tweed 500ml Thermos Water Bottle comes complete with a beautifully handmade Harris Tweed sleeve which is lined with our own bespoke deerskin lining.
An insulated thermos is a purchase that will continue to pay off all year round.
The best vacuum flasks play a dual role: they keep hot liquids like coffee warm, and they keep cold drinks like ice water cool, for those boiling road trips in the height of summer.
Once you have one in your life, you will find it accompanying you to the office, to festivals, on camping trips and even on holidays abroad.
How do thermos flasks work? Basically, they use a double-walled construction, where the air between these walls is removed and forms a vacuum.
Heat struggles to pass through the vacuum, meaning liquid remains at a roughly constant temperature. The tweed may differ from the image depending on where the tweed was cut.

Tracy named her business 'Created by the Ridleys' because: She made an eclectic mix of things and from one week to the next didn't know what she would make and sell.""I was still working full time and spending my evenings and weekends with designing, cutting and sewing. In 2015 I started incorporating Harris Tweed into my designs and they sold very well! I was amazed and it encouraged me to keep going. However, I'm a Yorkshire girl and I don't like waste, so I started thinking about what I could do with the leftovers. Using Pinterest for ideas, I started making Harris Tweed jackets for hip flasks and for my own hand-poured candles. The range of items that Created by the Ridleys now makes and sells has grown significantly. Using only British fabrics and source all their components from the UK, Created By The Ridleys are committed to reducing their carbon footprint and making their brand as sustainable as possible. As all their packaging is made from recycled paper, they are committed to being a responsible manufacturer.Fast forward to 2023 - Created By The Ridleys are not only celebrating their 9th anniversary, but they have 3 more awards to their name.

“I still pinch myself and am extremely proud of what I have achieved, if I had to give anyone else advice it would be don't give up on your dream!! It's hard work and long hours, there will be lots of laughs and being cried and you won't always make the best choices. It's not for everyone, and not everyone's dreams are meant to come true. I've come a long way since the crying mess that started tinkering to try to prevent her head would explode. I hope you've been inspired by my story and I'm always up for a chat if you want to make your dreams come true." Tracy x
