49.00

The soft black and subtle off-white pattern of this cushion cover is friendly for the colour-shy, and goes easily with existing colours. We recommend mixing up cushion sizes- a 40x60cm rectangle with a 50x50cm square- to create a lively layered effect.

  • 40x60cm pure cotton cushion cover by Tensira
  • Entirely handmade in Guinea, West Africa
  • The dash motif on this cushion cover is created with a traditional Guinean resist-dyeing technique, where pieces of string are carefully sewn on before the textile is dyed, then removed to reveal the desired pattern
  • Button closure on back
  • Machine wash cold or at 30° Celcius, gentle detergent, line dry
  • Cushion insert not included

We were first drawn to Tensira by the distinct softness of their hand-woven Kas cotton. Thick and durable yet loose and supple, this unusual quality can best be described as inviting.

Tensira products are a perfect reflection of the philosophy of founders Tuulia Makinen and Hamidou Diallo, who have built their brand based on fair trade, preserving the artisanal know-how of traditional African craftsmanship, and of course, all-natural fabrics created with personal attention. Tensira’s textiles are entirely handmade in West Africa by a small team of highly-skilled artisans. Their designs combine the understated minimalism of Scandinavian aesthetics with traditional West African patterns, making them an easy fit for any home.
