The Jovita Purse gives you sweet and simple refinement in a compact handbag that fits more than you’d expect. Take it with you wherever you go and enjoy the function and style behind this classic style.. Includes two interior spacious zippered pockets.

The Jovita pattern features an abstract Zapotec diamond and lightning design in natural shades of undyed wool- gray, black, and cream. This neutral color palette will easily transition from season to season, perfect for a bag lovingly handmade to last.

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 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.

Your purchase connects you to real people and their incredible artistry. Expertly handcrafted from start to finish, every thread has a story.

My fourth purchase!

This is my fourth mzmade bag - I have them in both blue and black tones that fit my wardrobe - small, every-day size, this medium size that holds more when needed, and a large one for travel. Love them!

Perfection

This bag is exactly what I needed. The size is perfect for carrying over shoulder. It holds plenty of necessities without being big, bulky or heavy. The fabric, coloring and workmanship is BEAUTIFUL!!!
