The Maltese islands boast a wealth of identity, evident to the eye in how we act and we interact and, to an extent, how we present ourselves both socially and visually. It would be fair to state that this abundance of distinction may be rooted in a strong sense of tradition, pride and patriotism.
We are based in Malta, and over the past years, we have been studying forms and visual elements that define the Maltese identity, culture & aesthetic.
Te fit-Tazza X JAD Jewellery Collab.
This collaboration is an exploration of some of the forms, colours and visual language that make up the beautiful Maltese islands.
Drawing inspiration from three beloved buildings from our collections, examples of the local urban landscape that are so unique.
Colours of Malta
Introducing our new Colours of Malta print: Il-Qarraba!
Beyond Ġnejna, and falling just short of Għajn Tuffieħa, at the foot of colossal clay hills, sits a beach that is as beautiful as it is secluded. With rich orange sand, an emerald green sea and the dramatics that the hills provide, this swimming spot is one of the island’s quiet bays.
Richard England Collab.
Award winning architect Richard England has always firmly believed that architecture must not only accommodate its functional aspects but more so it must enhance the spirit, and elevate the soul of its users. He has often quoted Tennessee William’s words ‘I don’t want reality, I want magic’ stating that his philosophy is that the job of the architect is to make the ordinary extraordinary.
Embracing a regional approach with specific reference to place, memory and the zeitgeist of the age, England’s inspiration stems from the rich millennial mnemonic layering of his native land; from the Neolithic, through the resplendent architecture of the 16th , 17th and 18th centuries together with that of the ethnic vernacular typology.
The collection highlights distinct elements drawn from England’s vast body of works, all of which combine a local expression with a contemporary aesthetic; a fusion that has become the hallmark of England’s unique architectural vision.

Te fit-Tazza X Maltatype Collab
This Collaboration gives us the opportunity to further our exploration of the Maltese identity through Maltatype’s extensive documentation of local Typography.
One thing we could definitely agree with Maltatype is the lack of preservation of such important features that makes up the Maltese aesthetic. With this premise, we wanted to identify such local heritage and how it can be embraced, cultivated and celebrated in modern times.
Our Prints, your Space
We love nothing more than seeing you flex your creative muscles by picking the perfect spots for our Te fit-Tazza illustrations. We’ve seen the respect you show art pieces and find it glorious. Potted plants compliment artworks perfectly, and when we see traditional features of a Maltese home our heart melts. Alternatively, a traditional piece fits a modern home well, as it shows the contrasts which are often huge talking points within society. We are keen to see more of our work in your homes, so remember to tag us in your Instagram posts, and we might even share your beautiful space with our followers.

A New Te fit-Tazza Space in Valletta
We’ve been working for over a year to find another space for both our brands. The idea is a new retail shop for Souvenirs That Don’t Suck and a multifunctional creative space for Te fit-Tazza.
Welcome to the family.
Souvenirs That Don’t Suck
In 2018 we announced that Te fit-Tazza has acquired Souvenirs That Don’t Suck in Malta. Souvenirs That Don’t Suck is a brand aimed at creating modern and playful Malta- themed gifts, in an effort to fight the worldwide epidemic of bad souvenirs. T-shirts, tote bags, mugs and more.
Whilst both brands remain distinct and true to their nature, this exciting adventure unlocked new potential for both brands to provide a vast array of inspirational and beautifully-designed products.
