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.

Dining

The best way to be with family & friends is around the dining table. A nourishing and gentle meal, stories shared over a glass of wine. Gatherings can be made simplistic and elegant by having a table with flowers, candles, favourite plates and bowls brimming with home cooked dishes, and a beautiful glass ready to fill!

Baina Organic Towelling

BAINA is an Antipodean brand of curated towelling founded by Bailey Meredith and Anna Fahey. Their contemporary, organic cotton towels celebrate the daily bathing ritual, softening into the moments that begin and end the day.

BAINA’S modern approach to design is anchored in print and colour with a considered sensibility that nods to fine art, sculpture, architecture and colour theory. While harnessing simplicity, Baina experiments with texture to create shape, elevating an everyday object to upend the neutrality of the bathroom.

Committed to creating timeless collections, BAINA takes a mindful approach to craftsmanship and materiality. Made in Portugal, Baina works with GOTS certified organic cotton and produces with one of Europe’s most established mills to develop their considered offering.

Louise Douglas Jewellery

Louise draws inspiration for her handcrafted jewellery from her upbringing in a natural landscape. Her organic aesthetic expresses memories of a childhood spent exploring New Zealand's native forests and rugged seaside.Starting her first jewellery company at age 18, Louise relishes in the process of bringing small objects into the world and sending them out to evoke curiosity and beauty.

Louise carefully carves each of her original detailed designs by hand in wax from her studio in sunny Nelson, consequently avoiding a mass-manufactured look with her distinctive and timeless style. These delicate models are then cast into silver or bronze, and finished with an array of high-quality freshwater pearls. The silver is oxidised for an antique finish, while the bronze is dipped in 22k gold.
