EXTRA LARGE HANDWOVEN COTTON CUSHION COVER IN TRADITIONAL STRIPES
We wanted to add something truly comforting to our range. This extra-large cushion cover is the ideal home accessory for snuggling up on the sofa or in bed. Large enough to double up as a pillowcase, it serves to add a relaxed look and feel to a sofa, armchair or bed. We love how this cushion cover looks with a slightly underfilled cushion insert, adding a slouchy, comfortable decorative touch.
Every aspect of these cushion covers has been crafted by hand within the Tensira workshop. The fabric is pure cotton that has been hand-spun, hand-woven, and hand-dyed using a traditional loom within the Tensira workshop in West Africa. The highest level of craftsmanship makes Tensira fabrics durable and timeless, endowing them with a level of quality unmatched by mass-produced items.
Tensira was created by husband and wife team Tuulia and Hamidou. Inspired by Hamidou’s mother, a West African artisanal indigo dyer, Tullia and Hamidou’s aim was to honour and celebrate the traditional crafting methods that the small West African town of Tensira has specialised in for centuries. Tensira creates the highest quality West African textiles while promoting Guinean handcraft and creating long-lasting employment for African craft communities. From start to finish, all Tensira products are made with care within their very own workshop. This ensures not only the highest quality of production but also fair wages and healthy, safe working conditions for all Tensira artisans and collaborators.
