CARLOTA

Barro Negro Mexican Leather Crossbody Bag

$150
Black clay is a popular pottery technique from Mexico. The black clay manufacturing process is very old, it is believed that its origin dates back to BC times. In those times the objects of this material were created with dirt but they did not work very well because when using them as vessels to carry water, it leaked. So to improve its hardness, artisans began to burn the clay over low heat in underground ovens with oak logs. The first pieces were made in Monte Albán, Oaxaca. However, over time many artisans started making this art, predominantly in San Bartolo Coyotepec and in small municipalities near the valley of Mexico. But it was not until the 20th century that artisans began to make more detailed pieces with different cuts and with more shine by polishing and burnishing. The cuts or perforations, like the ones in your bag, are a unique characteristic element of this black clay technique.
          • Carlota crossbody bag engraved with inspiration in black clay pottery . Smooth leather handles and details to the color of the bag, two zippered pockets. The leathers used in this collection are treated with 100% vegetable materials. This means that different natural products are used in its tanning process instead of using chemicals that are harmful to the environment. These natural products are usually tree and plant branches, such as chestnut and tara, sticks, roots, and nuts, which are powdered and used to tan leather. The anilines used to color your bag, like the waxes that create the two-tone effect, are of vegetable origin. For this reason, any irregularity that you notice in the skin is the effect of the natural process. As a suggestion, do not expose your bag to the sun for a long time since some oxidation in the color could be noticed, as it happens with the fruit.
