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

The Great Plains features God’s eye, Zapotec diamond, and arrow designs in warm brown, amber yellow, turquoise and pine green against beige wool.

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.

Love this bag!!!

Love love love this bag!! The craftsmanship is superb. The weaving is well done and colors are very beautiful. The leather straps are thick and durable, and can carry my heavy stuff easily. I like the inner pocket and always love a bag with zip closure. The zipper is quite thick and heavy so seems like it will last a long time. Malena and Hugo did an excellent job making this bag!

Gorgeous dream bag

I love this bag. It’s big enough for my 13” laptop that I have to take to and from work everyday. I love that it has a zipper and can close. It feels durable and well made. The colors are vibrant and I appreciate the small details like who made it and where it was made, etc.l never thought I would be someone who spends $$$ on a bag but it is so worth it.

Beautiful!

Absolutely love the bag and already getting lots of comments. The colors and design are perfect, and the smell of the leather handles are what I first noticed pulling it out of the bag. High quality, highly recommended.
