Welcome to Tessa's Kitchen, founded by me, Tessa, in order to fill the gap for stylish, unique and affordable glassware and tableware in Hong Kong.
Where are you from?
I'm originally from England but I have lived and travelled extensively throughout the world so now consider myself International. Over the last 25 years I have lived and worked in London, New York, Abu Dhabi and Hong Kong. Hong Kong is my current home but I also have a home in Spain close to where my husband's family live, which we try and get to as much as possible. I definitely feel inspired by my travels and am always on the lookout for new products to add to my collection.
Why did you start Tessa’s Kitchen?
Throughout my 11 years in Hong Kong, I have struggled to find on trend but affordable tableware. Being a chef, I have spent many years creating food that tastes and looks beautiful but I wanted to combine this with my love of style and interiors and create a tablescape to match. Unable to find what I was looking for, namely beautiful tableware which was also fun, affordable and practical (all our glassware is dishwasher safe!), I decided to take matters into my own hands and so Tessa’s Kitchen was born.
Where do you source your products?
Sourcing products takes time which is why I have done all the hard work - so you don’t have to! As well as partnering with some fabulous brands from Europe, I have also sourced some lovely Asian ceramics from Jingdezhen in China and designed my own line of beautiful French linen. I am always on the lookout for new collaborations and love to be inspired by travel so watch this space!
I hope you love the products as much as i do.
