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.

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.
