Tembea in Swahili means to 'walk a long distance'. To travel, explore, wander, marvel and learn. Because the further away from home we are, the closer we get to our curiosity about the world.

The Tembea fabric is handmade in Africa. You may find imperfections in the weaving or designs, which make the product unique.
