Every Minga bag has been ethically sourced for a mutually agreed upon, direct trade price and provides work to our artisan partners, a collaborative group of 18 women living in a remote region of Ecuador.

Our bags are handmade and one-of-a-kind. This means that no two are exactly alike and almost all contain irregularities from size to styles to color. Please allow for slight imperfections as this is what adds to the unique character of each bag.

Due to the leather's natural finish each hide will keep its distinctive features, such as veins and pores. Please allow the leather time to naturally wear and soften over time.

Purchases from the Dazey Lady Shop may ship separately from standard Dazey LA orders. Please note that purchases from the Dazey Lady Shop are unavailable for international shipping. Purchases from the Dazey Lady Shop are final sale.

Meet the Dazey Ladies: The Floras de Choco

 

Minga bags are handmade by a women’s artisan group living in the cloudforest of Intag, Ecuador. These women use an ancient crafting technique to create products from cabuya, a native cactus fiber. Artisans have been using cabuya for thousands of years, but with the introduction of plastics, it’s need has slowly decreased. Our artisan partners represent some of the last communities still using this age-old method. Each Minga bag takes days of careful concentration and hard work to create. After harvesting, preparing and botanically dying the cabuya, the women hand spin the thread and work from one of a kind designs to crochet each bag.
