Equinox Tote

5 reviews

This beautiful 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. Day or night, it’s your new favorite sidekick.

The Equinox pattern features a Zapotec lightning design in shades of Persian orange, light teal, deep slate blue, and rust, on a backdrop of natural undyed cream wool.

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 Rocio + 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.

Beautiful tote and fantastic customer service!

This tote is so lovely and seems super sturdy. I'm using it as a work/leisure bag replacing a longchamp that's a little worse for wear at this point. Additionally, the customer service was fantastic - I made a number of silly mistakes in the process of ordering the bag that they smoothed over so seamlessly! 100/10!

It’s Perfect!

I already have the Colornation Tote that I adore but the strong colors only go with so much. This Equinox Tote is a perfect Nuetral option and I love it!!! So happy I found MZ Trade.

Love the Equinox Tote

Love this bag! It was my birthday present to myself. :) When I ordered it, it was on backorder but it ended up shipping to me several weeks before I expected it to. I’ve gotten lots of compliments on it so far and it’s only been a couple of weeks toting it around!
