Ten Dots Textiles is a collection of functional and sculptural baskets and bags made from cotton rope made by Tenisha Dotstry. Drawing inspiration from traditional coiled basketry, architecture, and natural forms, every product is one of a kind.
Each piece is made by simultaneously coiling and hand-forming 100% unbleached cotton rope while sewing it on a sewing machine with premium threads. A durable, strong, and stable textile is formed through this process which will hold its shape for the life of the product. The uniformity of the stitching adds color and rhythm to the pieces, highlighting the natural rope without taking away from it.
Tenisha designs and works in her home studio in Washington, DC, where she lives with her husband and dog.
