Tensira

30 Sep 2020

Founded by Hamidou Diallo, of Guinean origin, and Tuulia Makinen Diallo, of Finnish origin, Tensira is a unique marriage of traditional African weaving and modern Scandinavian design.  Their sustainable homewares are made entirely by hand using age-old Guinean weaving and dying techniques.  The company employs more than 100 artisans in their workshops in the Republic of Guinea in a safe and fair working environment.


“Excluded from globalization, African crafts risk to disappear. My goal is to highlight this craftsmanship and develop a market for this unique know-how which has been passed on from generation to generation.”

- Hamidou Diallo
