This is not a drill

It feels funny. Good funny. In the build-up to opening our Melbourne store, we had so many stop-starts that now it feels kind of surreal. But we have actual signs (OK, so they're really just A4 sheets of paper but it's a start) up in actual windows. It's really happening and the wheels are really in motion. And it's really very exciting.

With the benefit of hindsight, we should've been a little more mysterious about our location. You Melbournians sure do know your lanes, don't you? And yes, we're opening up at 141 Flinders Lane, in the ground floor space accessed via this gorgeous doorway and situated on the corner of Oliver Lane, near Russell Street.

We're still pinching ourselves that we'll be situated in such a beautiful part of Melbourne's CBD. We hope you love the spot (and shop!) as much as we do. Oh, and the button and needle number on the building? Well, we absolutely took that as a (pardon the pun) sign that this was where we wanted to be!


  1. Fantastic news!!! Congratulations- indeed a perfect location. Looking forward to the opening...

  2. So ... when are you coming to Brisbane?

  3. Congratulations! I love the button and needle, sounds like destiny.

  4. Gosh, The Sign? SEEEEEWWWWW Destiny!!!

    Can't WAIT till you arrive*


  5. I am hoping you bring lots of beautful jerseys with you. There are NO nice jerseys anywhere in melbourne to be found, and being 4 months pregant I am in DESPERATE need of some nice fabric with a bit of stretch. Can't wait to see you open your doors.

  6. OOOOOH! I actually went scouting when I was in Flinders lane last week, looking for that big button, but I couldn't find! I just needed to go a little further I see now!
    Can't wait till you get here!

  7. How brilliant! Congratulations and my, what an awesome spot. I loved visiting your Surry Hills store but will love even more to be able to visit Tessuti in Melbourne. All the best and see you soon.

  8. Thankyou everyone for your well wishes....not long now!

  9. You're opening about 50m from the back of my building! this is soooo dangerous ...

    You're right next door to a fantastic coffee place (Breadwell) and just up the street from so much goodness, well done team!
