Alpha Shadows


When the owner of this brand went to buy a baguette, he realised he didn’t have a bag suitable to transport his elongated doughy pole. So he made one. The ‘baguette tote’ was the first Tembea product and the range has rapidly grown. Crafted from cotton canvas, with a special paraffin wax finish which protects from rain and everyday drippage, Tembea bags are built to last and soften with use. Bereft of extraneous detail, these minimalist totes, messenger and toilet bags are all about form and function. Rough and rugged in build, but gentle on the eye – perfect for hauling your portfolio around a day of meetings, or just sitting on the floor of the artisan bakery while you ponder your choice of baguette.
