Welcome to CARTERA, handcrafted leather handbags.

I am Galit Perez, the founder of
CARTERA is a Spanish word for a wallet. My dad came from Spain, when I founded my company I searched for a name that connected to my Spanish roots.

I come from a family of five creative women who all found their life passion in the design industry.
I was first introduced to fashion by learning to sew from my mother when I was ten years old.
The company was founded as way to overcome a language barrier while balancing motherhood and a career. Established in 2012,
CARTERA is a rapidly growing company that designs and produces original leather handbags. Under the sole ownership of Galit Perez who is  dedicated to exquisite craftsmanship. The leather bags are both charming and functional, designed to aid the transition from work to leisure. CARTERA is geared towards middle class women that express an interest in quality handbags. I would like CARTERA to be synonymous with both quality and creativity.

I explored many career paths and possess a formal education in business administration and project management. However, my deep passion for design and fashion propelled me to my true calling - leather handbag design.

I  design and create line of handbags that accommodate the urban woman's life style blending fashion and functionality.

Join me and be the first to know about new designs.

Thank you,

Galit Perez
