- FISH PILLOW
Tilli Tanit’s head of the atelier, Rachida Sfaxi, leads a team of female embroiders in the coastal town of Mahdia. For this playful pillow, they drew inspiration from another Tunisian craft: the Sejnane region’s signature pottery, passed down through the generations from mother to daughter. Translated into linen and thread, the result is this whimsical pillow, hand embroidered in navy mohair by female embroiderers.
- BIRD DECORATIVE PLATE
Gift this whimsical terracotta plate topped with a trio of songbirds . Steeped in Tunisian heritage, this decorative plate is handmade by artisans in northern Tunisia who pass their ceramic tradition from mother to daughter. The design is inspired the migratory birds that land at lake Ichkeul in the north of Tunisia. Each item is one of a kind.

The Tunisian designers, artisans and entrepreneurs we work with. The creatives and experts behind the design, content and development of our website. The community of peers, friends and small business owners we lean on. The customers and clients we work with. To our global community, THANK YOU.
