Chair Cushion

by Tensira

Tensira combines modern design and centuries-old weaving and dyeing practices. Their line of textiles is dyed with 100% vegetable indigo pigment. An expression of Guinean weaving and indigo dying techniques merged with Nordic design, Tensira, was founded in 2010 by Hamidou Diallo and his wife Tuulia Makinen Daillo.

Cushions are filled with Kapok, a natural fiber that comes from the fruit of the Kapok tree (also called the silk-cotton tree due to the very silky touch of its fiber).

Each print is completely hand dyed and possesses unique qualities, no two are the same. 100% cotton, hand-spun, hand-woven, and non-removable cover. Natural fiber inner cushion.  

As seen in second image, from top to bottom: K.133, I.323, K.196, TC.607

About Tensira

In 2010, husband and wife team Hamidou Diallo and Tuulia Makinen Diallo created Tensira – a company that offers upscale home linen and fashion accessories.  Hamidou is originally from Guinea, speaks four languages fluently, his mother was an artisanal indigo dyer for more than 40 years in Guinea and is a source of inspiration for Tensira. Tuulia is a native of Finland and Artistic Manager for their company, producing two collections a year.   What makes their products unique is the fusion between Nordic design and traditional West-African craftsmanship. Tensira’s designs and crafts originate from the Republic of Guinea, West Africa. Named after a small village known for the dyeing of indigo, all of Tensira’s products are 100% cotton, hand-spun, hand-woven, and hand-dyed.
