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 like the Fondouk El Attarine in Tunisia. Above: Tinja collaborates with local craftspeople to make its designs; the company offers seven product lines, each of which celebrates a specific material or technique. The Bâtons Bascule Armchair  with a goatskin cover, shown here, is part of Oud , a collection of olivewood furniture. Above: The Big Branche Lamps have white painted wood bases and jaunty rush shades. Above: Curtain Tiebacks are made of terra cotta and rope. Above: The terracotta  Horizontal Stripes Pitcher is "made by women from Tunisia's northern regions who pass on the art of pottery making from mother to daughter." Above: Maison Medium Lamps  are made of rush with metal frames. Maison Table Lamps  are also available. Above: The White Teapot  (also made in red, turquoise, and black with accompanying mugs) is part of the Fokhar line of brightly glazed ceramics. Above: The Bâton Hanger is made of olivewood. Tinja offers a group of natural wood bowls, cutting boards, and serving pieces (see Zitoun ). Tinja's designs are sold in the US at Bergdorf Goodman, Calypso St. Barths, Hollyhock, and Dennis & Leen, and in Paris at Merci. Go to Tinja for more details and a list of vendors worldwide.
