This tote 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. This tote will take you effortlessly from day to night while keeping you smart and stylish. 

The Gemini pattern features an intricate design of Zapotec diamonds, arrows and butterflies in earthy shades of beige, rust and mustard with a pop of cobalt and royal blue.

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.

Bag: 13.5” x 18” x 3.5”
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
Black cotton lining
Hand-dyed and handwoven

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 Maria Luisa + Jose Luis in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Maria Luisa enjoys every part of the weaving process, but it’s combining colors that really makes her artistic heart sing and her purses are studies in subtle and complementary color-blocking and traditional patterns.

Maria Luisa comes from a family of four generations of weavers. She learned the art from her parents, and has been weaving for 40 years.

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.

Great tote!

This tote is amazing! It’s beautiful, durable and just the right size. The leather handles are very comfortable. A lot of love went into its creation, and a lot of love is going into its usage.

Gorgeous!

This bag is STUNNING! Fresh out of the mail it smells like raw wool and leather. It reminds me of the smell of the leather horse saddles in the barn growing up when I’d bring my little sister to riding lessons. Who knew a bag could bring back so much nostalgia.

Gemini Tote

I love my tote. I bought the same one for my daughter. We both loved the design and I decided to get one for her for Christmas, though it didn't arrive until late January, I ended up giving it to her for Valentine's Day! I use mine for work, I put my computer, purse and lunch in there. It is the perfect size and I was so happy to see there is a zipper and a big pocket on the inside.

Beautiful bag

I gave this a four star because I expected the background color to be off white and it is more like the background of the picture featured above. Otherwise it is a beautiful bag that I am going to give as a gift. I think my daughter-in-law will love it.

Looove this bag

I received my Gemini tote quicker than expected and absolutely love it. You can smell the leather as soon as you remove it from the packaging! Super sturdy and durable so far. I’ve taken it to the beach and used it as an overnight bag. I actually like that there’s only one pocket inside for my smaller essential items. Not only is it well made, it’s a purchase I feel good about!
