This shoulder bag gives you sweet and simple refinement in a compact purse that fits more than you’d expect. Take it with you wherever you go and enjoy the function and style behind this classic shoulder bag.

The River pattern features an abstract Zapotec diamond and arrow design in deep slate blue, light turquoise, and gray.

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.

Strap Drop: 10”

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

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 Josefina + Paco in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Josefina has been weaving for over 20 years, and has partnered with MZ Made since the beginning. She loves the entire process, from choosing the colors and patterns to watching them come to life on the loom and becoming a finished handbag.

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 bag with denim and whites

This bag is user friendly. The zipper functions smoothly and the wool material has plenty of body so the bag keeps its shape when full. The colors are lovely with denim or whites and the leather is of good quality. The only improvement I’d like to see is a cell phone pocket in the lining, and a zipper on the larger pocket inside. Great bag, though!
