The Manos Zapotecas crossbody is a tried and tested bag for day and night. It has an adjustable leather strap, a zip closure and a lined interior with one pocket.

Ascension features the Monte Alban design in warm autumnal shades of beige, burgundy and blue.

Designed by artisans Malena + Hugo. When Malena was 10-years-old, her mother began teaching her to weave, starting with simple designs that later became more and more complex. She left school at age 14, which is not unusual for girls in her village, in order to help her family by working. By age 15 she had fallen in love with her now-husband Hugo, who was 19 at the time. They swiftly married, and following custom, Malena moved in with Hugo Santiago and his family. They had their daughter Maya within the year. Malena and Hugo have been with MZ since the beginning.  They work together in a fluid, collaborative process that takes advantage of their skills and interests.
