Tensira combines modern design and centuries-old weaving and dyeing practices. An expression of Guinean weaving and indigo dyeing techniques merged with Nordic design, Tensira was founded in 2010 by Hamidou Diallo and his wife Tuulia Makinen Diallo. This line of striking textiles is dyed with 100% vegetable indigo pigment. Tensira promotes sustainable production, respect for the environment and people, as well as a safe and fair work place for all its collaborators.
Each print is completely hand-dyed and possesses unique qualities; no two are the same. 100% cotton, hand-spun, hand-woven, and hand-dyed cover. Insert filled with Kapok fiber, a natural fiber native to Guinea and sourced directly from the Kapok tree.
