Introducing Tessa Loves Tiles⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


A suite of patterns inspired by the tiles of the Levant - from Andalusia to Marrakech. Think of the dry heat, souks and rust coloured walls calling out to the cool symmetry of tiles... bringing peace and calm to the restless warmth of the day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ tea, lamb tagine, roasting aubergines on a smoky grill, dollops of yogurt as a counterpoint. Nuts and lush green herbs stud steaming mounds of couscous and you glance up to the bluest skies you've ever seen. The heady zing of citrus cuts through the air as someone, somewhere has just squeezed a lemon over something ready to be eaten.


Out of the corner of your eye, golden globes of fragrant Seville oranges flocked with glossy leaves greener still than the olive oil abundant here... they beckon to you to take just another walk before dinnertime. Why not? You may always snack on pistachios in the meantime.  


Robes and carpets hanging around the bend in the market, each more intricate than the last, dressing the floors of the rose-water scented stalls around you - but the sandy dunes aren't all that far away, are they? The geometric nature of these patterns counter the textures and statement colours - they scaffold the abundance, and create space for you to do your thing.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀


Pencil marks are left in, fuzzy edges abound - the human hand is not absent from this kit, which draws from sketchy drawings on ancient parchment and the rich pigments from wax colour pencils to bring forth these delicious jewel tones.


This is a juxtaposition between clean structure and hand-drawn, imperfect, soulful work, and I hope you love it as much as I do.
