Welcome to CARTERA, handcrafted leather handbags.

I am Galit Perez, founder of CARTERA.
CARTERA is a Spanish name for a wallet, a purse. My dad came from Spain, so I was looking for a sign related to my Spanish roots.

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 a line of handbags that fit the urban woman's lifestyle blending fashion and functionality, using only the highest quality of leather and handcrafted locally in my studio in Sunnyvale, California.

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

Thank you,

Galit Perez
