Tensira was founded in 2010 inspired by an encounter between Hamidou Diallo, Guinean origin, and Tuulia Makinen Diallo, Finnish origin.

Tensira is a unique expression of centuries-old Guinean know-how of weaving and indigo dyeing mixed with Nordic design.

Hamidou’s mother was an indigo dying artist for more than 40 years at the Prefecture of Mali in Guinea. She was the first source of inspiration.

Their core value is to promote sustainable production, respect for the environment and people as well as guarantee a safe and fair work environment for all of their collaborators.
