The partners, well known in the national and international textile ecosystem, are working in partnership with GIZ. Aissa DIONE, known worldwide in the sector for its luxury products, will reinforce its production locally in its Dakar workshops, with various equipment thanks to the GIZ.

Tisserand Dakar also offers interior decoration products made by local carpenters and weavers. The company received support from GIZ to strengthen its internal organization and set up management tools. Tisserand received equipment and technical assistance from GIZ and German partner SEQUA as part of its SME grant Scheme program.

The two companies supply national and international markets and equip hotels with furniture and interior decoration items made from textiles and wood sourced in Senegal.

Local production is gradually developed, and eventually more young people are trained and employed.
