Cristi Ambroson’s extensive travels inspired her to create Tessera. The moniker--which refers to a tile in a mosaic--is fitting: Tessera is like a collage of pieces from various cultures that combine to radiant, harmonious effect. Cristi personally selects antiques and textiles from extraordinary places for all her projects, including this Tastemaker Tag Sale. A portion of all proceeds will benefit children in the countries she explores.
