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!

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.

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.
