Tensira

Indigo Hand-Dyed Cotton Napkins (Set of 4)

£106

Tensira’s beautiful linen represents the meeting point between Nordic design and age-old Guinean know-how – as we can see in this set of Indigo napkins, lovingly made in the maker’s West African workshop. Each piece is spun from cotton and woven by hand using traditional looms, before being indigo dyed to create the unique colour variations you see here.

Tensira

Tensira is the story of Finland-native Tuulia Makinen Diallo and Guinea-born Hamidou Diallo. It was founded in 2010 from their family home in Paris and combines Tuulia’s fashion and textile expertise with Hamidou’s knowledge of Guinean craft – something he can attribute to his mother, an indigo dye artist with over 40 years of experience. Today, they own a workshop in Conakry, Guinea, where local artisans spin, weave and dye natural fibres by hand using traditional looms. They share a respect for African craftsmanship and sustainable production methods, utilising both in the creation of their wonderfully unique table linen.
