Jessie tweets & chats her days away working in the social media and public relations departments of Tea. Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Jessie moved to New York after college to work in the fashion industry. Still new to San Francisco, she's constantly discovering new sushi spots and hidden boutiques. She's still dreaming of her last trip to the Caribbean and hopes one day soon she can play on the beaches of Thailand.
We’ve partnered with 4Moms, Care.com, Minted, Petunia Pickle Bottom and Plum Organics to bring you one amazing prize package for baby. You have two weeks to enter and receive special offers (get $10 off your tea order of $50+) when you sign up for mailing lists. So, just what will you win?
From decorative garlands to decorative pillows, tassels seem to be hanging everywhere we look. We came across tassels of every size in Morocco and you’ll see them all throughout our catalog. Now, you can make your own tassels!
To get started you’ll need embroidery thread, a 2 x 2 inch piece of cardboard and a pair of scissors. If you’d like to have bigger tassels, the size of your cardboard should be increased.
Wrap your embroidery thread around the cardboard 35-45 times. The more you wrap, the thicker your tassel will be.
Take a 5 inch piece of thread and loop it through the top. Tie a tight knot – This will help you attach your tassel in your final project.
Cut the opposite end’s loop and set cardboard aside.
Take an 8 inch piece of thread and knot it around the top of your tassel. Wrap the top of the tassel with the remaining length of thread on either side, knotting once more when you’ve come to the end.
We were thrilled when San Francisco photographer, Carol Vaziri, reached out to Tea about working together on a photo shoot. Her “natural and curious” style of photography captured Tea perfectly. The idea behind the shoot — “How Do You Wear Tea?”. Dressed up or dressed down, kids are constantly climbing, running, jumping and Tea is right there with them. We love seeing Tea in action, keeping children comfortable and stylish while they experience everyday magic. So, how does your little one wear Tea? Share your photos with us… they could end up on teacollection.com!
Not only does it come in Aubrey size – it comes in baby size too! This beautiful deep orchid color was found all through out the Majorelle Garden in Marrakech. It’s one of our favorites this spring and it’s perfect for all occasions!
