The First Frost pattern features a Zapotec diamond and arrow designs in frosty blue and cream on natural gray 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.

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.

My third First Frost Shoulder Bag

When my First Frost arrived, I just sat and looked at it. The heavy zipper, the beautiful pattern, the quality of the leather, the rich construction. I knew this was a work of art. It was nice to know the names of the artisans who put it together. I sent a picture of mine to each of my daughters and they perused the site, and both chose same one! One lives in Nebraska, another Mt Shasta and I’m in Sonora. We love our shoulder bags! I then picked a different one for my sister in Reedley, CA. This company is why I love fair trade. Helping others to help themselves!

First Frost Shoulder bag

Excellent. The bag is perfect, and so beautiful. I love the sturdy zipper across the top, plus the pocket inside. The quality of the weave is exceptional. The workmanship is without flaw. The wool has heft; the quality of this bag beats anything I have seen. Truly. Now, to order for my daughters for Christmas!

I love this bag and I always get compliments on it! I sprayed it to protect it, and it still looks great over a year and a half later. This is a quality handmade product, and each crafter should be proud of each piece that they make! Magnificent! :)

Best purse I’ve ever bought!!

I absolutely adore this purse! I’ve had many purses over the years, some very expensive name brand... this purse is so beautiful, well made, and is my most favorite! I’m so grateful I saw one in Santa Fe and tracked it down. I can’t wait to pick out my next work of art! Many thanks to all at this business!
