About

It's not just a fashion statement, it's a lifestyle.

Your search for accessories that fit your lifestyle ends here. It’s a beautiful thing when your purchases align with your values. Being at peace with your purchase shouldn't send you on a two hour quest through the depths of any website. Your time is precious. Wouldn’t you rather spend those two hours getting pampered at the spa?

Seamlessly go from dawn to dusk, from work to wanderlust, from risk-taker to trend-setter. We design our handbags with the modern gal in mind. Take them from the farmers market to the airport. From the office to the rock show...yes, they’re that versatile! Tzoma bags are designed to not only be aesthetically pleasing, but to be functional. We take simple designs, pair them with the most eco-friendly materials and quality craftsmanship for a bag that will accompany you throughout your day, everyday.

Embrace your very own, personal style, and be confident that you’re helping make the fashion industry more sustainable. Finding an handbag that is both eco-friendly and fashionable can prove to be harder than you thought. We search high and low for the most sustainable materials to be used in our designs. Slow fashion with low impact on the environment means every last detail --every fabric, notion, piece of hardware, packaging material, and even hand-waxing services-- are sourced from like-minded, U.S. based, small businesses we consider partners.

Every Tzoma bag is made to order, just for you. Organic, salvaged, recycled and repurposed fabrics are hand-waxed --exclusively for us-- with pure, triple filtered beeswax by our partners, down in Houston, Tx. Waxed fabrics arrive at our Dallas, Tx studio --with a sweet, subtle honey scent-- ready to be measured, cut, and lovingly handcrafted --one by one-- in small batches. Every order is packaged with eco-friendly packaging materials, please dispose of them accordingly.

Waxed canvas has a uniquely rugged, beautiful patina that only gets better with age. Waxed canvas originated in the early sailing industry in England and Scotland in the late 1700’s by treating fabrics with oil from a flax plant. The 1930’s brought about the use of paraffin wax, which is the same process many use today. Our waxed canvas is hand-waxed with triple filtered, Texas beeswax. The process of waxing fabrics changes the properties of the fabric by making it slighter stiffer, and by darkening it’s color, too. Waxed cotton is very durable, water-resistant, and develops it’s own unique character with age. Waxed fabrics should only be spot cleaned. Please don’t wash, dry clean, or iron your Tzoma bag(s). If you get a water spot on your bag, then hit that spot with a little heat (from a hair dryer) to reset the wax. Heat will also remove excessive creasing on your bag.

They say your handbag can either make or break your outfit. You know your handbag goes beyond that. Because doing nothing about our environment is not an option, and living a sustainable lifestyle doesn’t end at the organic produce aisle. You believe in having a choice, in supporting what you believe in -- You have a choice on how you impact the world, make sure it’s a positive impact.

Frequently asked questions
What does Tzoma mean?

Tzoma, pronounced: tso-mah (the same "ts" sound as when you say "cats") means "to sew" in Nahuatl. The language spoken by the Aztecs.

How are your products eco-friendly?

We use cork, which is a truly sustainable natural resource. All of the fabrics we use are either organic or we salvage from local businesses. All notions, except for zippers, are sustainably produced.

Where do your supplies come from?

All the materials we work with are sourced from U.S. based small businesses who share our vision of a more sustainable fashion industry. We take great pride in knowing how and where the materials we work with come from.

Are your products vegan?

Only our cork handbags are vegan. The canvas in your bag is sent to our hand-waxing partners down in Houston, Tx where it's hand-waxed with triple filtered, Texas beeswax.

Do you make any vegan products?

Yes! Our cork handbags are vegan.

How do I care for my waxed canvas bag?

Please don't wash, dry clean, or iron your bag. Spot clean it with a damp rag instead. If you get water spots on your bag, then hit the spot with a little heat (like a hair dryer) to reset the wax. Heat will also remove creases from your bag.

Returns/Exchanges

If you are not happy with your purchase, then email us via the contact link in our shoppe within 7 days from receiving your items.
