OUR PHILOSOPHY

We believe home to be a place that mirrors one’s values, reminds us of where we’ve been and replenishes us for our days ahead. Home is a space for our family, friends and everything in between. Tessuti assists in building this sanctuary one piece at a time. Our selection of homewares, furnishings and gifts, sourced both locally and abroad from makers we respect and admire, are each chosen because they enrich our lives with a unique quality. Our store houses objects that we love, that we use in our own homes, and that we believe you, too, will enjoy. Tessuti, essentially, is our house. And like good friends, we’re here to share.

SLOW DESIGN

Slow products are proudly – and slowly – handcrafted in Tuscany. Founders Roberto di Filitto and Nathalie Schneider design a wide variety of pieces and produce them using the traditional techniques and skills of local craftsmen. Slow's research into these lost arts allows them to restore and reinvent the commonest of objects, giving them a new vigour and spirit.

The Mute Books (Libri Muti) collection by Slow Design features notebooks made completely by hand in Florence, Italy using time honoured printing and binding techniques. They colour the edges of the book block by hand, a very nice touch reminiscent of the ancient craft of bookbinding.

General Sleep Store

 

We want you to sleep well. And good sleep starts with peace of mind. 

To trace to and offer utmost transparency to our wearers, General Sleep visited the community of women weavers, that their pyjama collections are created in collaboration with, in the South of India. 

Originally set up to preserve the handloom techniques, the initiative supports the local community by paying their weavers a living wage. Working in large passive buildings equipped with solar power and utilising as much green technology as possible, the weavers loom their bespoke fabric from locally sourced cotton, which is then hand cut and stitched on site. 

Meeting the weavers has enriched the process and desire to continue creating a kind and meaningful exchange.  

We make sure; you can rest easy in General Sleep.

ASTIER DE VILLATTE

Astier de Villatte ceramics are handmade in their Parisian workshops. Each piece is unique, as a result of manual work and the natural method of drying. The white enamel allows an irregular glimpse of the brown clay underneath.

The production of ceramic objects is a long and delicate process. Each piece is entirely made by one craftsperson. In fact, you can find engraved on each piece the initials of Astier de Villatte and of the craftsperson who made it.
