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. This beautiful item is made by hand from 100% hand-spun, hand-woven, and hand-dyed cotton in their workshops. They 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.
