From the Náhuatl, word tzapotl, and the Mayan tauch, the zapote is a popular tropical fruit originally from Mexico. The zapote played a very important role in the worship to Xipe Tótec, or the "Flayed Lord", a Mesoamerican god especially revered by the Mexica natives. The fruit was lined to the garments worn by this god, as he wore a skirt made from zapote leaves. It an also be seen in depictions of sacrifice rituals to these gods, as people would present offerings of ears of corn covered with green zapote leaves.

When receiving word of the arrival of the Spaniards, Motecuhzoma ordered his people to prepare Tlachtonco, the place where they would flee to, by placing many zapote branches, and tracing paths with the leaves.

Baguette style bag inspired by the Zapote fruit, an animal representative of Mexican culture. Orange suede leather interior with card and visa slots. Brand detail printed on the front. A design that will fill your travels with life and color.

Measurements: 4.9" x 3.1" x 0.5"

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.
