Talavera Mexican Leather Card Holder
- About Carlota
Talavera ceramic is typical from the state of Puebla, Mexico. It is known for it white background with design in blue, yellow, black, green, orange, and mauve. Original Talavera pottery from Puebla is only made in the state, specifically in the towns of Atlixco or Cholula, due to the high quality of the clays found in these regions, and the four-centuries-old traditional manufacturing.
Talavera is a blend of Chinese, Italian, Spanish, and native ceramic manufacturing techniques. This tradition was born in this beautiful state, and is known as Talavera Poblana, making it different from other Spanish Talavera.

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.
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.
