Oaxaca is a state in Mexico rich in natural beauty, exquisite gastronomy, magnificent architecture, archeology site of great importance, and particularly known for the best kept textile traditions. These cultural treasures date back to pre-Hispanic times, in the textile traditions that are still performed using artisanal methods passed down through generations. Many indigenous communities follow the traditional way of growing the plants to produce the fibers. The Zapotec community from the Tehuantepec Isthmus is one of these groups. Women, called Tehuanas, create these beautiful pieces with large colorful flowers on dark velvet, representing the dreams and aspirations of these communities, using the natural beauty of these valleys as an inspiration.

Care: Carlota pieces are made with high-quality materials, and therefore should be treated with care, and protected against the elements. Due to the delicate nature of the materials, daily use can cause scratches and scuff marks on the surface, so we recommend you treat it with care. The leather is submitted to an important natural dye process, and the suede lining is pigmented with natural anilines, so we recommend that you be careful with any light-colored items that may come into contact with it.
If soiled, carefully clean the surface area using water and soft detergents. To keep your leather products in optimum condition, clean with a soft dry cloth, or, if necessary have them professionally cleaned.
