Maya: a carryall backpack for women. PRE-ORDER
More than a backpack, Maya carries you.
She carries you with confidence and with style.
Maya is for good – Her lining is made of recycled water bottles plus she gives 1% to women and 1% to the planet.
Maya transforms to carry you confidently through every situation.
Women carry the world on their shoulders – every single day.
We carry careers, families, businesses, and communities.
We carry each other as we journey to achieve health and wellness goals, personal success, equality, and change.
Made of luxurious vegan leather in shades of charcoal and cashmere, Maya carries beauty along with your laptop, water bottles, keys, wallets, purses, and extra clothes.
Maya's backpack straps can be tucked away and a crossbody strap can be added to carry her messenger style. Maya comes with a cosmetic bag which can also be a clutch or crossbody bag. Plus we've included a bag you can use for shoes or gym clothes.
Not just a backpack – Maya can also carry you as a crossbody bag, or a stylish briefcase with her with her grab n’ go handle. So you can match your carry-style with your lifestyle.
Committed to Your Body
Scratch what you’ve been told all these years: beauty is not pain. Designed with women's shoulders and backs in mind, Maya works with your body, not against it.
This means more proportionately placed straps, optimizing weight distribution, and dimensions shaped for DIOSAs. Maya not only looks good, but feels good as well.
Maya carries pockets, compartments, and features to make sure she is the perfect bag for you. Maya comfortably carries your laptop, water bottle, keys, passports, and even charges your phone. Maya also carries a detachable satchel that can be used as a clutch, purse, or toiletry bag.
1% for women + 1% for the earth = 2% For You+
DIOSA commits to giving 2% of our sales either in-kind or in-cash to initiatives that contribute to women and girl’s human rights, economic prosperity, and financial independence as well as to initiatives improving our global environment.
We’ll continue to share details on how this movement is unfolding through our social media and website.

Return PolicyWe aim to bring you the highest quality products and shopping experience. If you’re not happy with your DIOSA purchase, we’re here to help.

This depends heavily on production and shipping time. Right now we are estimating May - June 2021.
DIOSA has been affected, like many other businesses, by COVID-19. The virus affected all facets of our company including production, shipping times and gathering materials.
Since our bags are being ethically produced in China we were also affected by the Lunar New Year which is a large holiday in most Asian countries and often shuts down factories for a month or more.
Most importantly, quality takes time and we want to make sure you are completely satisfied with your Maya Backpack. Our manufacturer is using their most experienced sewers which adds time to the production.
We created the Maya to be a fully functional, fashionable backpack that will help you carry you throughout your day, anything less would not do.
Our team works remotely so we’re able to continue working in our own safe environment. Anytime a product is handled, we ensure the environment is sanitary and gloves and masks are worn.
Here are a few things we do on your behalf whenever you purchase from our shop:
- Give 1% to women's organizations such as empowerment centres in Guatemala.
- Hire weavers from Women Empowerment Centres in Guatemala to help create products.
- Inspire confidence in women through our stylish, functional products.
Plus you're supporting a woman entrepreneur!
Our bag is 28L, with dimensions of approx. 16"H x 11"W.
The perfect size, it fits up to a 15" laptop and all other necessities.
The outer shell is vegan leather and the lining is fabric made from recycled water bottles.
To carry Maya as a crossbody bag, take the strap from the detachable clutch bag and attach it to the rings on the side of the bag. To carry briefcase style, simply take by the grab-and-go handle at the top of the bag. The backpack straps can be tucked away for a slick and stylish carry.
Anthropometrics body measurement was taken by an Occupational Therapist to determine the average width of a female back in order to design the strap that distributes the weight across the back.
We looked at shoulder breadth and considered all different body shapes and bone structures. Maya was created with combined good ergonomic design input. The adjustable, padded straps are key to comfort and custom fitting the bag to any body shape.
Ergonomic top handles allow for a correct neural spine squat when picking up the bag and less effort and distance to lift the bag than a typical briefcase-style.
Your favourite battery pack and charger will slip right into the bag. The interior pocket was designed for the DIOSA Nimble battery charger (sold separately) that is made of plant-based and recycled materials.
