Guayaba Mexican Leather Mini Clutch
- About Carlota
From the Nahuatl xalxócotl, "sandy fruit", the guava is a fruit native to Central America, so it is common to find it in tropical countries. It is one of the most used fruits in naturopathic medicine in Mexico. Guava was considered by the Aztecs as an effective remedy for the cure of dysentery. This fruit is part of the colorful, flavor and traditional aroma of the Day of the Dead offerings, the Mexican festivities and the Posadas decembrinas, where the guava punch cannot be missing. The guava roll, typical of Bajío and Talpa de Allende in Jalisco, is an internationally known traditional Mexican sweet.

Carlota Camacho Hall was a strong and generous woman who showed her talent as one of the most acknowledged Mexican painters of her time. She loved Mexico deeply, and captured it in her oil paintings which are now respectful and lovingly displayed in the regional museums of the Comarca Lagunera, located in the north of Mexico.
