Quilted Kapok Mattress Small, with Removeable Cover

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 hand-dyed. Removable envelope-closure cover and natural fiber inner mattress.

About Tensira

Hamidou and Tuulia Makinen Diallo, husband and wife duo, created TENSIRA with a mission of empowering craft communities in the Republic of Guinea. Their hand-spun, hand-woven, and hand-dyed items are all made in a small West African town known for their centuries-old indigo dyeing tradition. These works celebrate the dyer’s and weaver’s knowledge of their craft while promoting fair wages, and a healthy, safe work environment for over 100 artisans. All TENSIRA products are woven with 100% cotton and filled with Kapok fiber, a natural fiber native to Guinea and sourced directly from the Kapok tree. Available in stunning patterns, colors range from subtle to saturated, the final product is a fusion of Nordic design and traditional West African craftsmanship.
