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.

Planning to spruce up your living space with sustainably made cushions? This vibrant, all-natural Tensira piece exclusive to Goodee will open your home to new possibilities with its exquisite double-sided design, showcasing a traditional tie-dyeing technique. Like all Tensira products, it is responsibly made in the West African Republic of Guinea from 100% hand-spun, hand-woven, and hand-dyed cotton, and filled with kapok — a soft and silky natural fiber that is picked and shelled by hand. Consider mixing and matching patterns for an eclectic style.
