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

I became a designer later in life after starting a family and realizing that to surround myself with beauty, I had to create it myself. So, I learned to sew, sourced materials and embarked on a journey in a small studio in the heart of the Bay Area, CA, where I now design handbags. 

My style isn't about complexity or revolution. I create what I love—using the finest materials, rich colors, and textures without unnecessary adornments. I aim for products that last a lifetime and want the same for my customers.
