más es más totes

Whether you’re headed to the office, the beach, or a lady-like lunch, these-sturdy-yet-stylish bags will assure that you and your belongings arrive looking like the star that you are. The Classico and Moderno come in a variety of colors and sizes, and each “more is more” tote is finished with hand-braided handles. They also come with a little something to feel good about: The water-resistant bags are made from 100-percent recycled plastic that’s handwoven by Oaxacan craftsmen. If you are leaning into a more restrained “less is best” look, take a gander at our palm woven tote. Available in three sizes with leather handles, these work for any occasion and only get better and more supple with time.

EL SHOPPO is the vision of Zoë Gowen, a woman who values a great sense of humor as much a unique sense of style. While she never planned to build an international fashion, accessory, and home décor business, it now seems inevitable. After almost a decade of knocking on doors, leaving notes in mailboxes, and barging in people’s homes on behalf of Southern Living, the former home-and-garden editrex was tired. Zoë desperately needed a relaxing vacation, and a new career that didn’t require her to come up with clever musings about sofas or sourcing Christmas trees in July. A magical trip to Mexico proved to be the solution.

A much-needed vacation to Mexico led to many happy returns, as well as a career pivot. Zoë’s passion for the one-of-a-kind colorful finds in Oaxaca—and collaboration with the people who make them—inspired her to launch EL SHOPPO, a very intentional, US-based tienda offering custom dresses, totes, candles, and more.
