"Carry baguettes and organize books. Stack newspapers and store toys. Pack for a trip; gather your produce. Bike to work; walk to school. Each bag has its function." - TEMBEA
TEMBEA in Swahili means "to wander". Made from a special cotton canvas treated with paraffin - a type of wax that repels water - TEMBEA yarn is made from meticulously combed cotton fibers, made extra strong and firm through this combing process, also giving the yarn a distinctive, lustrous appearance. Woven on 50+ year old shuttle looms, the resulting TEMBEA canvas has a solid selvage edge that only betters with age.
We are happy to host a special pop-up of TEMBEA bags starting February 28th to April 5th. A wide variety of bags will be available for purchase so please come and see them!
