BEHIND THE SCENES
This week, we present Tony, a member of the Télio family for 13 years! Supervisor in our Montreal warehouse, Tony is always hard at work, with a smile 🙂
Position: Picking/Cutting Supervisor
When is your favourite time at work?: I enjoy coming to work early, going over my work and getting my team ready to start their day!
What is your favourite fabric: I don’t have a favourite fabric, but I do like the feeling of silk.
What is your primary responsibility at work? To distribute orders to the pickers and cutters, make sure goods are picked and cut as quickly as possible and deal with any issues that may arise.
What are your hobbies outside of work? I enjoy spending time with my family, weekend get-a-way’s, and watching hockey.

INSPIRATION: Spring/Summer 2016's Lace Takeover
Times are changing, designers are making bold moves that reflect what is happening in our culture. 2015 was a big year for trans issues, with Laverne Cox being on the cover of Time magazine, Caitlyn Jenner‘s 17 million strong Diane Sawyer interview and the plethora of movies surrounding issues of gender transition, it would appear […]
TÉLIO TALK: Office Garden
Summer is over, but there’s still time to introduce you to our amazing Télio Garden!
