VivaZapataBags' Shop Announcement


Viva Zapata's bags are hyper-urban, all-terrain, forever, easy-going, chameleonic! Made of the same vinyl that covers the seats of the buses of Buenos Aires, the colectivos, the most popular and colorful form of public transportation in Argentina’s capital. The straps are manufactured for use in the heavy window shutters found throughout Argentina, so you know they’re built to last. Neither colectivos nor shutters are easy to find in New York. Is that why native, adoptive and temporary New Yorkers have been falling in love with these bags?

No buses were harmed in the making of these bags :)

Body: Vintage naugahyde in iridescent sheens and rich,
marbleized textures.
Straps: Heavy duty cotton web, beige with black and yellow pinstripes.
Lining: Strong spunbonded olefin draws moisture away from the compartment.
…Viva Zapata! was born on the Boreal Fall of 2004, although its history can be traced back to an Austral Spring on the threshold of the millennium.
…Viva Zapata! doesn’t feel at home in only one place but anywhere: in the Northern or Southern hemisphere, in the center or in the periphery, in a populated city of ten million people or in a small Patagonic town of several thousand.
