CARTERA is the handbag line conceived by designer Galit Perez

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.

Launched in 2014, I encouraged my clients to reconnect with the beauty of long-lasting and patiently crafted bags and imagined supple and relaxed styles that could not be tied to any seasonal trends.

With minimalist details and coming in any of the colors in the palette, CARTERA bags are produced in a small studio, underlining their exclusive appeal.

The philosophy of my brand is to avoid the pressure of seasonal collections and come up with fresh bag designs whenever the timing is right for me. Great ideas need time -and space- to develop, and the same applies to handbag design.

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.
