I’ve featured and worked with a lot of Independent Designers over the years here at Grechen’s Closet, but did you know that in my “previous life” I worked with independent Israeli clothing & jewelry designers? That was many years ago, but I always loved the innovation and quality I found in Israeli design, and hoped to one day again help bring it more exposure in the US.
Now there’s a shopping site that does just that: Coolil. I learned about it yesterday via this post from Maria, and have spent quite some time browsing around since then! My favorite pieces on the site are the handbags from designers Kisim, Efika, Magnes Sisters and Danielle Lehavi; there is not one bag or wallet I wouldn’t love to own. There’s also some gorgeous jewelry and the cutest stuffed toys for children by Manuella.
So, I’m particularly excited about this week’s giveaway: an Efika square leather wallet in black. This is one of the original pieces that caught my eye – everything about it is unexpected. From the way the wallet opens and the inside pockets, to the bright lining inside, this leather wallet is an interesting piece of design, as well as totally practical.
