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 style and substance behind this classic shoulder bag. 

The Sands pattern features agave, lightning and arrow designs in neutral tones of tan, cream, brown 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.

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.

Beautiful design

I love this design, color, and size! Thank you very much ❤️


Roomy, stylish, and practical

I love the shape of this purse and own three. It holds a surprising amount without a lot of extra bulkiness to get in the way. The fabrics are beautiful and I can't count the number of compliments I've received, most ladies asking the name of the company. The Sands fabric is a lovely mix of neutrals, prettier than in the pics. I know it will be one of my go-to purses for many years.
