Welcome to CARTERA, handcrafted leather bags.

I am Galit Perez, the founder, and designer of CARTERA bags.
CARTERA is a Spanish word for a wallet, a small purse. My dad (Salvador Perez) came from a village in north Morocco where the inhabitants speak Spanish. Therefore, I searched for a company name related to my Spanish roots.

CARTERA was founded in 2014 and is a fast-growing company.
My craftsman's workshop is in San Francisco Bay area, CA, where I design, cut, and sew the bags.
I sourced the best top-grain leather from California suppliers.  
The leather bags are charming and functional, designed to help transition from work to leisure. I desire CARTERA to be synonymous with quality as well as creativity.

I have a formal education in business administration and project management. However, my deep passion for design and fashion motivated my vocation - designing leather handbags.

Every one of my bags is designed to last!

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.
