About the Collection

The quetzal bird, the Mayan legend tells about the time when Kukulkan, the god creator, and Tepeu, the god of the heavens, created the earth together. When they gave life to the birds, the quetzal was born from the puffs of air blown at a guayacán tree. With the divine breaths, the greenish-blue leaves from the guayacán tree flew away in the form of this majestic bird of wonderful long plumage. Moctezuma’s headdress, a quetzalapanecáyotl, made of quetzal feathers, is thought to have been created by the amantecas, Mexica artists who specialized in making objects for the god Quetzalcóatl, or “plumed serpent”, using feathers. This headdress was made with 222 feathers, most of which are from quetzal birds. Currently, the original piece is housed at the Ethnology Museum in Vienna, Austria, while a reproduction can be seen at the National Anthropology Museum, in Mexico City.

CARLOTA was founded by brother and sister, Gerardo and Daniela. Their story begins with their grandmother, Carlota Camacho Hall—a recognized painter in the 1800s whose artistic spirit now lives on in the heart of their brand. Carlota's passion for art and her deep connection to the vibrant culture of Mexico became the guiding light for CARLOTA. As descendants, Daniela and Gerardo carry forward her legacy not only in name but in the craftsmanship that defines each of their leather bags.

CARLOTA weaves the threads of family heritage, artistic inspiration, and Mexican tradition into every stitch of their finely crafted leather bags. Their designs are a canvas with the colors and patterns of Mexico's rich tapestry. The landscapes, traditions, and folklore inspire every detail of their leather bags. 

As you explore their collection, you're not just purchasing a bag; you're becoming a part of the Carlota journey. Every piece is not just an accessory but a work of art. Join us in celebrating family, art, and the cultural richness of Mexico with each carefully crafted leather creation.
