Sedona Manos Zapotecas Duffel Bag

This bag is made to order, and will take approximately 10 weeks for delivery.

An exquisite duffel bag if there ever was one, the Sedona Zapotec coral and deep brick red diamond stares out at the world, thinking.  'What are you thinking?', I ask myself as I'm drawn into it's maze. Whatever is going on in that magnificent mind of yours, I hope it rubs off on me.  Set within a soft, pale blue, with a dominant beige and brown details, this warm/neutral bag will carry everything you need for a long weekend, or if you're a guy, for  a month!  Hmmmm....where shall we go?

Sedona Duffel features the Zapotec Diamond and Agave designs.

The agave plant, or maguey as it is locally known, is integral to the central valleys of Oaxaca. Both wild and cultivated, this plant offers sweet nectar that can be enjoyed as-is or fermented into the local alcohol of choice, mezcal. The leaves and flowers are eaten, the fibers used as thread and the plant even has medicinal uses. The shape of the large spiky plant is stylized in its woven form, with a central point representing the agave flower.

Says Rocio, the Manos Zapotecas artist who designed and hand-wove this bag, “Weaving is a beautiful and noble work that allows me to care for my (2) kids and still fulfill my dream of being creative. It’s what I love to do,” she said.

Rocio is a true artist who loves the creativity of creating unique patterns and combining colors in new ways. She says that designing is her favorite part of the process and loves getting to see her idea become the final product.

 “When I see a bag this well designed, I say, ‘Oh yes, that’s how I imagined it!’” she said with a bright smile, “It’s very cool.”  Personally, I love having objects of beauty in my life that are created by happy people. Thank you Rocio!  We love you!
