Tunisian-Influenced Style via Tinja in France

Julie Carlson February 11, 2016

Salah Sfar, the founder of Tinja, worked in the Parisian art scene before starting Tinja. Her son, Zeineb Sfar, a fashion designer and colorist, and her daughter, Yasmine Sfar, an interior designer, have joined her in the family business celebrating their Tunisian heritage by offering contemporary interpretations of Tunisian-made handicrafts.

Above: The Tinja team also takes on interior design projects such as the Fondouk El Attarine in Tunisia.
