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 Malena + Hugo in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Malena has been weaving all of her life, learning first from her grandfather, starting with simple designs that later became more and more complex. Her favorite part of the process is the moment the colors and the designs start to come together.

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.

I was so excited to receive my tote for many thrilling reasons - the sheer natural beauty of ancient weaving patterns & rich colors that reflect and symbolize mother earth. Then feeling and using my bag - I really appreciate the wonderful craftwoman and craftsmanship of something that is hand made, especially being a maker myself. Lastly the "less is more" design - that feels nice an easy & truly practical. This little bag is beautiful Art that can be admired by all! I've received so many compliments - I'm happy to share them here. I love my new heirloom treasure! To know that this little bag is helping others thrive and that it is made with precious hands that connect me with other sweet souls of other lands, makes my heart sing!

I love my tote!

I love my bag. It’s prettier than I expected. The quality couldn’t be any better. I can’t wait to get out with it. I have no regrets buying it.



I'm not sure how to put into words just how much I love this bag. I now have purchased three totes and two clutches from MZ and love every one so much! They're all so beautiful and unique in their own beautiful way-like works of art. Specifically, the colors of the Dark Earth & Arrows tote might be my favorite of them all. It's just absolutely beautiful. And a word of advice for anyone out there on the fence about making their first purchase from this company...the pieces are 1,000 times more beautiful in person, and the photos (although great) just don't do them justice. I also love how a real person crafts these products (and just WAIT until you see the craftsmanship for yourself) and very fast shipping! This will not be my last purchase from MZFairtrade. I'm so glad I found you!
