Mustard - Tembea TMB-1951H

Regular price $185 Unit price  per 

A stylish bag that can be both daily wear and an overnight bag for its size and versatility.  The comfortable wide straps cleverly placed on the side allows you to get a full view of your bag's contents while the bag is still crossed over or hanging off your shoulder.  A discrete button closure along with a deliberately elongated top allows you to close the bag, then fold the top over for a slightly more compact carry (10'' H).  Or you can leave the top standing upright and fill your bag up to the brim with all your important things (16'' H). The bright pop of mustard yellow is both neutral and bold, sure to compliment a wide array of styles and be a timeless staple in your wardrobe.

16" H x 17.5" L x 6" W 

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. Do not machine wash. Do not tumble dry, do not bleach. Only cool iron and handwash, if necessary.
