This Spring-Summer Season, Tensira takes you on a dreamful, chic and vintage cruise across the Atlantic Ocean.
Artistic director Tuulia Mäkinen Diallo was born and grew up in Finland. She has lived for 20 years in Paris, her eternal inspiration in Tensira’s collections.
From time to time, she loves to escape and recharge her batteries far from busy Paris, near the ocean.
In this collection, we are departing from the elegant French seaside town Biarritz and arriving to the iconic Sag Harbor in the US.
Through its collections, Tensira reveals its Parisian and cosmopolitan spirit over the years.
New neutral colors mixed with the classic black and off-white fabrics add an elegant and urban touch to your interior. They brighten up your home !
The Spring-Summer 2023 selection brings a breath of fresh air by playing with a palette of blues, off-whites and luminous touches of yellow.
Finally, to complete this collection, Tensira designed a new line of gradient tie&dyes. All pieces are individually dyed with a specific West African dying technique, true master-pieces !
Let’s board together on the Tensira Cruise !

The refinement of the dyes, the touch and quality of our cotton and the originality of the creations makes Tensira’s products unique.
Tensira offers two collections a year and each collection is created around a specific theme.
Indigo and tie&dye
TENSIRA is reviving traditional indigo dyeing in its workshop in Guinea. The indigo blue comes from the green leaves of the indigotier plant. This plant grows in the mountainous region of Guinea, and is famous for its excellent natural dyeing qualities. Hamidou’s mother was an expert in dyeing and did the first indigo blue dye for TENSIRA. Today, TENSIRA’s artisans repeat her method. The dyeing process consists of several phases. Indigos are hand-dyed according to this traditional method and bring out TENSIRA’s signature deep blue.
To attain the unique tie&dye patterns, each stitch is sewn separately using a needle and thread before soaking the textile and then wringing it dry. One meter of tie&dye fabric contains about 3,600 stitches that are sewn and then unsewn after dyeing one by one. This level of craftsmanship makes TENSIRA’s products unique and gives them a level of quality unmatched by similar mass produced products.
