origin: early 17th century: from Latin textilis, from text- ‘woven’, from the verb texere


1. a type of cloth or woven fabric

2. a fiber, filament, or yarn used in making cloth

3. the stuff of distraction


pronunciation: /tɛˈreɪn/

origin: early 18th century (denoting part of the training ground in a riding school): from French, from a popular Latin variant of Latinterrenum, neuter of terrenus


1. a stretch of land, especially with regard to its physical features

2. a field of knowledge or interest

3. all things growing and blooming

Harriet (HF) thinks about flowers and fabric when she isn’t putting together exhibitions and being a general visual art & design dogsbody. The South Pacific, tagines and Dries van Noten also distract her.

Sometimes her cousin Nina (nj) helps her out: she is a landscape architect and works on public and commercial projects whilst also thinking about turquoise necklaces, chocolate croissants and sailing.

They live and work surrounded by salt water and cicadas in Sydney, Australia. Oh, and they are cousins: daughters of identical twins and sharing the gene for a love of naps.

t&t started as a sort of pre-Pinterest way of collating imagery and makers and things they liked. It will forever be a certified old-school, vertical-format weblog with no commercial ambitions, but lots of love.
