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.

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 Rocío + Omar in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Rocío learned the art of textile dyeing and weaving from her mother. She is a true artist who loves the creativity of creating unique patterns and combining colors in new ways. She loves getting to see her ideas become final products, and she is endlessly inspired by the natural world around her: the sunrise, the movement of birds, the colors of corn and other plants.

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.

Your purchase connects you to real people and their incredible artistry. Expertly handcrafted from start to finish, every thread has a story.

so well made and gorgeous colours

This is just how it is pictured, gorgeous colours, very well made, a great size to stuff so much in. Now that I have finally purchased my first bag I'm sure there will be more to come over the next few years. I love to be able to feel and connect with something that is handmade, to know that someone in another country actually handmade something I am holding in my hands. That is so special.

Absolutely beautiful

This is a beautifully crafted, sturdy, well sized Crossbody bag. I need the roomy size for all of my stuff but it’s not overwhelmingly big. I love it with my turquoise jewelry and get lots of compliments. It is exactly as pictured. Such an exquisite classic!

I love my new Tote. The red on this bag is slightly darker than I expected but still very pretty. I absolutely love the smell of wool and leather! Well made and seems to be very durable.

Love my new tote bag!

I purchased the Colornation Tote bag from MZ and am using it for my computer bag. It is absolutely gorgeous and very well made. The colors are deep, making the tote quite the eye catcher. The price was reasonable for how well made it is and it arrived when they said it would. I will definitely purchase from MZ again.

Awesome Bag!

I love the item--I wish there were more pockets! Maybe 1 on the outside for phone or keys & another on the inside for lipstick & pens. The handles are perfect length!

Love the Bag

Love the pattern and the bag. If I could offer a suggestion - make the liner in the bag a light color so you can see all the stuff that gets thrown in. Also, let folks know that the bag may have the smell of processed leather and wool but that it does diminish.

So light and easy to carry

I can't believe how much I can put in this and carry comfortably on my shoulder. I sometimes forget I'm carrying it, not to mention how beautiful it is. I got regular emails about the progress of shipping due to some delays also. I'm sure anything from this site would not disappoint anyone who would receive it as a gift! I only wish they had a size in between the purse and the tote.

I’m a very picky purse person but this one is perfect! Not too heavy. I love the way it smells! Colors are beautiful and the leather strap is just the right width. I love it!!

Gorgeous craftsmanship

This bag is beautiful, inside and out. The bag is looks like it does in the pictures but the quality is better than I expected. It also came with a tag that identifies the makers of the bag, which I liked. I highly recommend purchasing it.
