What We Love About It
Tensira fabrics are 100% cotton, hand-spun, handwoven and hand-dyed in Guinea, West Africa using traditional skills and craftsmanship. Tensira offers a range of stripes, indigos and tie-dye fabrics. We have selected the most complimentary styles to suit the modern Australian home.
Tensira’s indigos are dyed with vegetal indigo, and the tie-dye patterns are created by individual stitches. One meter of tie-dye fabric contains about 3,600 stitches that are sewn and then unsewn after dying.
This level of craftsmanship makes Tensira’s products unique and gives them a level of quality unmatched by similar mass produced products.

The Story Behind It
Husband and wife team Hamidou Diallo and Tuulia Makinen Diallo created Tensira in 2010 with the aim of creating upscale home linen and fashion accessories with an African twist. Based in Paris, France, their unique fabrics and designs are a fusion between European design and traditional West-African craftsmanship.
Tensira’s products originate from the Republic of Guinea, West Africa. Named after a small village known for its specialisation in indigo dyeing, all Tensira’s products are 100% cotton, hand-spun, hand-woven and hand-dyed in their Guinea workshops.
The workshops employ more than 40 full-time staff and collaborate with dozens of independent craftsmen. Tensira’s goal is to create long-lasting employment for West-African craft communities while keeping traditional skills and crafts alive.
