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.
Rachel Carley established a ceramic design practice during 1994 in Auckland, New Zealand, after completing her PhD in Architecture. The Rachel Carley Design ceramic collection contains a range of elegant and eclectic forms, which are designed to collaborate with food. The pieces can be mixed and matched in a multitude of ways, introducing variation to the dining experience.
A sustainable imperative informs Rachel's design practice. The ceramics are proudly made in New Zealand, and have become collectables, so are less likely to be part of a disposable ‘throwaway’ culture. They are designed to be used through breakfast, elevenses, lunch, and dinner, becoming intimately connected with the eating rituals and tea & coffee ceremonies of everyday life.
Our new Rachel Carley Design cushion collection celebrates luxury textiles, each produced in collaboration with selected artists. Designed to act as fine artworks for your sofa, these cushions celebrate colour, pattern and texture and each has a particular story to tell.
