Founded in 2015 by me – Edgars Bibers, MIZO is a bag atelier based in Cesis, Latvia that produces simple bags with character.

I refuse to take shortcuts. Every bag is hand-cut, machine-stitched and carefully rechecked until the last threadend is manually brushed off.

The inspiration behind my designs? Nature, small adventures and the city. Latvia is a beautiful place to find inspiration and so is Cesis with its many different faces – from the historical Old Town to the untamed but charming corners of its neighbourhoods.

Simplicity, excellence and responsibility are the values that drive me every day, which makes the formula of Mizo’s success simple; find what you love and do it relentlessly, with the best motives, and from the true spirit of your heart.
