This tote is just the right size to become your everyday bag. Run your errands, go for a night out or just pack a good book and a flask of tea. Fully lined with cotton with a handy pocket for your cell or keys.

The Alchemy pattern features an abstract Zapotec diamond design in shades of rich chocolate brown, dusty mauve, cream, eggplant, and beige. This earthy color palette will easily transition from season to season, perfect for a tote lovingly handmade to last.

Many of the traditional designs found on MZ Made bags are taken from pre-Hispanic Zapotec ruins such as Mitla and Monte Alban. Each of these symbols has a deep cultural meaning to the people who weave them. We are honored to share these beautiful designs with the world.

Strap Drop: 11”

This bag features an interior cotton lining in black with an open pocket and a sturdy metal zipper closure.

100% premium wool
Genuine leather

Each MZ Made creation is a work of art, handmade with immense love and pride. We strive to preserve the beautiful traditions and superb artistry of the Zapotec people by connecting them with socially conscious consumers around the globe.

Handmade by master Zapotec artisans Antonia + Tomás in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Antonia learned the art from her father, and has been involved in the process her whole life. Her favorite part of the process is choosing the colors and Zapotec patterns for a particular bag. She produces some of MZ Made's most loved designs.

Your handmade item is made with premium wool, which naturally repels dirt, debris, and moisture. It requires less laundering than other fibers! Never use a washer or dryer.

For light cleaning, we suggest a cashmere brush. They are readily available online and in most craft and yarn stores.

For more intensive cleaning, we recommend eco-friendly dry cleaning.

MZ Made is a Certified B Corp and accredited Fair Trade by the Fair Trade Federation.

MZ Made celebrates the weaving traditions of Oaxaca, Mexico. For over a decade we have worked in true partnership with artisan communities, led by the ethos of slow fashion. Your purchase connects you to real people and their incredible artistry. Expertly handcrafted from start to finish, every thread has a story.

Perfect Everyday Bag

It’s easy to carry. Stays put on my shoulder. Fits so much stuff. Is easy to find stuff. And I love how easy it is to get in and out of the bag.

New Tote

I love this bag! The colors are beautiful and it’s the perfect size for me. This is probable the tenth bag I have purchased as I have given them for gifts to my family members. Everyone loves them!

Gorgeous Gift

The perfect gift in my sister's color palette. I desperately wanted to keep it for myself once I got my hands on it... but I'm not as much a fan of the brown leather and already have my own!

LOVE my bag

I have been eyeing the totes for awhile, wasn't sure what pattern to get. This one matches everything. My only wish is for the straps to be vegan leather or cloth.
