Turquoise + Ruby Tote

6 reviews

This 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 Turquoise + Ruby pattern features Zapotec diamond, agave and lightning designs in ruby red and turquoise blue on pinkish beige wool.

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 Rocio + Omar in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Rocío learned the art of textile dyeing and weaving from her mother. She is a true artist who loves the creativity of creating unique patterns and combining colors in new ways. She loves getting to see her ideas become final products, and she is endlessly inspired by the natural world around her: the sunrise, the movement of birds, the colors of corn and other plants.

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.

Unbelievably Beautiful

Purchased this for many reasons: overall appearance & functionality, fair trade as women's small business, supporting tribal culture artistry and I've never seen such beautiful bags and totes in wool that did not cost at least 3 times the price! So very pleased with this purchase and I use it proudly. Thank you for such a quality product.
