African-Designed Home Textiles

I am of the opinion that color and texture are the foundation of any well designed space, setting the pace and acting as a reference point for choices as home interior projects evolve.

Traditional African textiles have always provided me with this checkpoint. A new awareness and access to artisans and suppliers open up many opportunities to be unique. I discovered, through a reference from Fatimata Ly, a company that is producing a wonderful line of textiles and furnishings.

Tensira, founded by a designer who is a native of Finland, recalls her first journey to Africa and how she was captured by the beauty of African textiles. They are fabrics of well-being, totally ecological and filled with history.
