About Us

Design + Sew + Create

Moyra Jones is the creative talent behind the labels: Surface Art, Essaye and Theadora Jones.

The three labels share a common “thread” – it’s all about the fabric.

Moyra studied fabric design and printing at the Scottish College of Textiles and started her first business, Tessuti, in Edinburgh when she was fresh out of college.

Tessuti is Italian for fabrics, and Moyra’s love of textiles has never faded.

Today, she operates out of a cute studio-shop in inner west Sydney, taking inspiration from the nature and objects around her and the artistic movements that have blossomed throughout the decades: William Morris, Orientalism, mid-Century abstraction, bold 1970s design …

Moyra’s designs and products all bear her individual style and clever use of colour.
