Tunisian craft and creativity

Established in Tunis in 2005, t i n j a is the first atelier of its kind dedicated to artisanal and creative experimentation within the Tunisian landscape.

The objects and furniture it produces form a collection with a unique identity, inspired by nature’s themes.

Yasmine and Mehdi currently lead this family project, embodying their vision of a handmade Mediterranean style in Tunisia that has been setting the standard for years.

They work with the conviction that their creativity serves as a driving force to create beautiful and sustainable pieces while supporting local communities which are carriers of an ancient craftsmanship.

      t i n j a puts human beings at the heart of its approach by weaving a link between the artisans of the various regions, guardians of a precious ancestral heritage, and its atelier, where its creations come to life.

    Mehdi Kebaier - Designer

    Mehdi Kebaier is born in 1988 in Bizerte, Tunisia. He graduated in civil engineering from the Université de Bretagne Sud (UBS) in Lorient, France, in 2012. From 2012 to 2018, he led teams on large-scale construction projects in Paris for a world-leading company.

    After three successfully completed mega-projects, Mehdi felt the need to return to his home country to be closer to his partner and family, but also to embark on a new entrepreneurial adventure.

    It was on this return that Mehdi had the opportunity to get involved with t i n j a. Together with Yasmine, he has discovered a new passion for design and artisanal production techniques.

    Yasmine Sfar - Designer

    Yasmine Sfar is born in Tunis, Tunisia, in 1984. In 2008, she graduated in interior architecture from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Until the end of 2011, she takes part in prestigious architectural projects and develops furniture pieces for their furnishings.

    Her aesthetic parents awakened in her a creative eye in constant effervescence with the world around her. A childhood spent walking the ruins of the mythical city of Carthage revealed her fascination with the legends of her ancestors.

    In 2012, the effervescence of Tunisia's post-revolutionary period prompted her to move to Tunis. She takes over the family project t i n j a, pursuing the ambitious project of revalorizing Tunisian craftsmanship and offering a collection of contemporary objects handcrafted by local artisans. Today, the brand has established itself as a key player in the sector, pioneering a movement to reinvent the art of living "à la tunisienne".

    Soon, her creations are exhibited and travel around the world.
