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 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.

Beyond expectation

I purchased this bag loving the design and color(s), but did have reservations (and was prepared for) the material being too abrasive. I could not have been impressed and surprised! I love the fact that you can tell that the bag is not off an assembly line; effort and time have been put into this piece. I will definitely be ordering more pieces!

Gorgeous tote

This is the mostly beautiful thing I own! It is a well made, elegant tote that is roomy enough for everything and more that I usually carry. I love that it zips and it is sturdy enough to carry my handbook and binoculars, as well as billfold, make-up bag, gloves, magazines and snacks.

So gorgeous!

This bag is everything I wanted and more. The fabric is even more amazing in real life. I particularly like that the leather has a beautiful strong leather smell. It’s fading but I really like it. Good size. Very well made. Incredible colors. I love not having a copy cutter bag.

Beautiful sturdy bag

I am really enjoying my new tote bag. It is so strong and I can tell the hand woven wool is great quality and strong. The zipper closes nicely and the leather straps don’t slip off my shoulder. It’s a really lovely bag and I can carry everything I need in a day. Books, sweater, water bottle and snacks fit perfect. I really love that it is handmade and I can tell it was made with great care and from some amazing artists.

My New Favorite

This is my third tote from MZ, plus I have four little bags, which I also love. The colors and pattern of this bag are spectacular. I feel blessed using something that has been hand loomed and made by artisans in addition to being so practical. Please weave one with a black background, so it is more practical to use. I do like the look of the pale ones, but honestly I just wouldn't buy one, because they would get so dirty.

Two Worlds Tote

Delivery was fast. Tote is beautifully made. The turquoise color is not as vivid as in the online photo, but still a pretty color. The other colors are beautiful and bright. The size is perfect for carrying my Bible and study materials for my weekly Bible study class. The only faults I found are: 1) the handles have been spliced together right in the middle of the leather strap so when you pick up the tote you feel the seam where the leather is sewn together; 2) it would be beneficial to have placed some type of small metal footing on the bottom of the tote to protect the leather from getting dirty when you set it down on a table or floor.

Lots of Compliments

I love my tote. I use it every day and get compliments all the time. I purchased the second one as a Christmas gift for my daughter. I can’t wait to see her expression when she unwraps it. They’re absolutely beautiful!
