Tessera’s inspiration comes from a long-standing Ambroson family holiday tradition. Each year, one member of my family gives the others a very special gift - a journey to a faraway place. Once we arrive at our destination, Mom, Dad and I make it a point to meander "far off the beaten path." This way we can experience the true beauty and wonder at the heart of these remarkable places. Each trip is a journey of discovery as we encounter spectacular landscapes, new ways of life, and inspiring people – each with a unique story to tell. No matter how far we wander, we are reminded time and again that many truths are universal: we all laugh, cry and love our children dearly.
The photographs of the places we visit and children we meet are my most treasured souvenirs. The objects and artifacts that we have collected over the years help to bring a little piece of these extraordinary lands and their people into our lives every day, here at home. Through Tessera I am offering you the opportunity to experience many of the treasures from these intriguing cultures. Additionally a percentage of all Tessera's sales going to children's education in the remote villages of many countries, including Peru and India.
I invite you to explore to you heart’s content.
