The Tensira story originates in Africa, where in its namesake village in the Republic of Guinea, the community’s artisans are renowned for their expertise in dyeing indigo. Inspired to design a collection of sustainable home essentials while providing opportunities for the West African artisans who create them, Hamidou Diallo and Tuulia Makinen Diallo founded Tensira, a brand where traditional African craftsmanship and modern minimalist design intersect.
