Made in a small town in the republic of Guinea known for its centuries-old indigo dyeing tradition, these are completely hand-made in Africa from 100% hand-spun, hand-woven, and hand-dyed cotton. 

The mattresses are filled with Kapok, a silky 100% natural fibre.  This fibre grows in the shell of the Kapok tree, known as the “cotton-silk” tree due to the very silky feel of the fibre. The picking, shelling and filling of the mattresses are done entirely by hand. The mattresses can be easily be laid on a bench, piled on a daybed, or thrown on the lawn for a picnic. 

EXCLUSIVE TO CUTTER BROOKS

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.
