Valerosa Boutique is a woman-owned company based out of North Carolina. Valerosa-meaning showing courage-a brave woman who believed in her dream. Her dream was to support and empower artisans by providing stable living wages and safe working conditions while preserving their beautiful, traditional craft techniques. The bright bold totes and clutches from Valerosa Boutique are designed locally in North Carolina and then handcrafted by artisans in Jalisco, Mexico. Each beautiful tote takes 1-2 days to complete and is washable and reusable.
