Trip to Tessuti


Tessuti has recently opened in Melbourne and I took a trip to the city to have a look. I have always felt a little jealous that Sydney had Tessuti and the rest of Australia didn't. I visited one of their shops in Sydney while on holidays a few years ago and was really impressed with their range of fabrics. No need to feel jealous anymore.

The Melbourne shop is exactly what I expected it to be, full of gorgeous, quality dress fabrics. Note: this is definitely not your local spotlight. Tessuti buy fabric from local and overseas designers so it is packed with drool worthy fabric.

I took home from the trip some beautiful denim that came from Zimmerman and a box of Crown Fox Pearl Pins. If you have never heard of Crown Fox Pearl Pins then listen up. They are THE ultimate box of pins. You get 1000 of them in a box and they have a pearl head so they are easy to work with and you won't lose them in your fabric. They will last you for ages and you can use the box as a storage container. Just don't iron over them or they will melt.

Oh they look pretty! And the box is kind of vintage-y too!

I love my box of Crown pins. Though it looks a little more dented and used than your lovely shiny box!

I remember my Mum had some pearl pins like this - I'm not sure where she got them though. I like the sound of that store - will go have a look at your link! :)
