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.

These handbags are part of a limited edition, handmade by local artisans of the state of Jalisco, and decorated with traditional Mexican folkloric motifs. Each of the designs are inspired by a specific and representative element of our culture. Through this piece of fine craftsmanship, the Crabtree family acknowledges and honors Grandmother Carlota for instilling in her descendants the love for their homeland, exalting it through art and beauty. We hope you enjoy this piece that symbolizes the wonders of Mexico!

At the moment, Carlota works with twenty artisans from Guadalajara Jalisco. They make the bags by hand from the tanning of the leather to the making, following an artisanal process. The artisans have more than twenty years of experience in the leather industry.
