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.  

Canvas coated in paraffin wax with metal hardware

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.  If you wash in hot water or in the machine, you may melt the coated wax that repels water, making your bag softer and less water repellent.
