Hand woven and dyed throw Dyed with tie&dye method. Made in Guinea.

Material: 100% hand woven cotton

Color: black/white

Size: about 125 x 160 cm

Tie Dye: Approximately 3600 "knots" are attached for one meter. From the picture you can see the dyeing process of the fabric, the knots are fixed with thread and needle, using the centuries-old West African technique. The following image shows when the knots are opened. Opening knots is very demanding and any wrong movement can cause the fabric to tear. However, there may be small holes in the fabric, which are difficult to detect. This also makes the fabric unique.

Tensira’s designs and crafts originate from the Republic of Guinea, West Africa. Named after a small village known for its specialisation in the dyeing of indigo, all Tensira’s products are 100% cotton, hand-spun, hand-woven and hand-dyed in our workshops.

In 2010, husband and wife team Hamidou Diallo and Tuulia Makinen Diallo created Tensira – a company that offers upscale home linen and fashion accessories. What makes their products unique is the fusion between Nordic design and traditional West-African craftsmanship.

Tensira’s goal is to create long-lasting employment for West-African craft communities.
