Over 10 years ago my father was taking a vacation in Oaxaca, Mexico when he found these colorful bags at the market place.
He fell in love with them right away and started to purchase them and import them to Japan where he owned and operated a few boutique stores. Time has flown by now and now with over 30,000 bags sold annually all over Japan, he asked me to help him share his love of these Mercado bags to everyone in the United States.
Gladly I decided to help him and Letra USA was born during the Fall of 2019!
Through these beautiful authentic handmade handbags we hope that you too can enjoy the authenticity, practicality and the beauty of the Oaxacan culture!
