Welcome to CARTERA, handcrafted leather bags.


I am Galit Perez, the creator, and designer behind CARTERA bags.

The name CARTERA is derived from the Spanish word for a small purse or wallet, and reflects my Spanish roots, as my father hails from a village in north Morocco where Spanish is spoken.

Established in 2014, CARTERA has rapidly grown into a thriving enterprise.

My workshop is located in the San Francisco Bay area of California, where I oversee the bag-making process from design to cutting and sewing. I pride myself on sourcing only the finest top-grain leather from California suppliers, ensuring that each bag is both stylish and practical, suitable for transitioning from work to leisure. My ultimate goal is for CARTERA to become synonymous with quality and innovation.

Although I hold formal qualifications in business administration and project management, my true passion lies in design and fashion. I am dedicated to creating leather handbags that not only look stunning but are also built to last.

Thank you for your interest in CARTERA.



Something to consider

Handmade leather handbags are a unique and luxurious accessory that showcases delicate craftsmanship and quality materials:

  1. Quality materials: the handmade leather bags are crafted using high-quality, genuine leather that is soft, supple, and durable.

  2. Unlike mass-produced bags, the bags are crafted by hand carefully cutting, stitching, and finishing each piece by hand, resulting in a one-of-a-kind product.

  3. Attention to detail: From the intricate stitching to the carefully chosen hardware, every aspect of a handmade bag is carefully considered and executed precisely.

  4. Timeless style: the bags feature classic and simple designs that never go out of style, making them versatile accessories that can be worn for years to come.

  5. Unique character: Because each bag is crafted individually, no two bags are exactly alike, resulting in a unique character and personality that cannot be replicated.

  6. Investment piece: Handmade leather bags are often considered investment pieces. They are crafted to last a lifetime and only get better with age, making them a worthwhile investment for those who value quality and longevity.
