Named after a small village known for its specialization of dyeing with indigo, Tensira’s designs and crafts originate from the Republic of Guinea, West Africa. These lovely treasures are made by hand from 100% hand-spun, hand-woven, and hand-dyed cotton in Tensira workshops. The beautiful cushions and mattresses are filled with the soft, airy, hand-shelled fibers of the indigenous Kapok tree. Some variations in fabric color will be present. The Kapok fiber filling is very soft and sometimes makes a pleasant crunchy sound.
