Our Story

Metal and wood mosaic handbags are a cultural and traditional statement piece in India, the Middle East and Northern African Culture.  Ziva Naseer handbags, clutches and crossbodies are distinct in their quality and design while paying homage to the beauty that exists around the world.  All Ziva bags are exclusively handmade by our owner and hand chosen team of master craftsmen, originally from India to maintain our products authenticity.  Each of our designs is a contemporary blend of vintage and bespoke artwork inspired by Dominique’s time living in the UAE.  Our work is custom created by shape, size, style and the materials used.  We are unique in every way and are proud to be a woman-owned, small business in the California Bay Area.  


(Dominique Waters, Owner)

Ziva in Arabic means Radiant, which is exactly what our bags represent. We are constantly developing our products to ensure our commitment of producing luxurious and long-lasting pieces is at the forefront. Our materials include naturally sourced mother of pearl, abalone and cowrie shells, clay ceramic tiles, resin jewel-tone embellishments, hand-carved pendants, brass studs, velvet-fabric for our inside lining and beautifully repurposed metal and wood as the base of each purse. We love what we do and hope that our passion radiantly shines through our products.  Your Ziva Naseer bag will be admired for generations to come, making them stylish heirlooms that transcend any trend.
