Grey and Navy - Tembea TMB-1272H

Regular price $140 Unit price  per 

Description:
Enjoy a tall canvas bag with a single U-shaped handle long enough to comfortably fit over your shoulder.  Minimal design with no pockets inside or outside, the U shaped single handle lays flat on just one side of the bag so you can easily have full access to the inside of your bag without a second handle blocking your view. Built to carry baguettes from the bakery, farmers market groceries, or just your 'run-around-town' essentials like keys and wallet.  The neutral and timeless color, as well as the accent white stitching, makes this a great bag for all people and styles.

Measurements:
18.25'' H x 17.5'' L x 6'' D


History: 

Tembea in Swahili means "to wander".  Their sturdy canvas bags are designed for daily use. 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. Tembea was founded in 2004, with the mission to make bags for a specific purpose.  Some of their bags are for bread, while others for toys, textbooks, vegetables and so on.  However, due to the simplicity and structure of their bags with easy to access pockets and wide straps, their products are versatile for many different purposes and can be easily adopted into your daily life to carry a wide variety of things.  

Materials:
Canvas coated in paraffin wax 

Variation: 
We have 2 bag in stock - 1 in each color.
Canvas will soften and age over time to reveal nice wear.

Care Instructions:
Spot clean or dust off with a dry brush.  Canvas is a natural material so it will gradually get softer and broken in over time.  Handwash warm.  Do not tumble wash or dry, and do not bleach.  Use only a cool iron and press cloth.  Canvas will soften and age over time to reveal nice wear.
