I also started sewing at the early age of three{!}, as my father and grandfather had a women couture business, in which i loved to spend time {i hid under huge cutting tables and looked for pieces of fabrics, zippers and shiny buttons and made my art - my mama still keeps those too}.

All of the products in this e-shop are entirely made by me. I put a lot of time and love into my designs, I create each piece with the human body in mind, choosing the materials, designing shapes and patterns, making and controlling the quality… I want my work to be attractive, unique and comfortable to wear. (no drawer of unusable stuff around here).

I have been sewing my own designs for over 20 years, and making and designing jewelry professionally for over 10 years (having studied goldsmithing and jewelry design for 3 years).

LUST was created so that I could do what I love, I run my business from my home studio in Raanana, Israel. It is full of love, and it is pet- and smoke-free.
(i mention this because some people do consider this before buying handmade products).

I'm happy to give away a little bit of myself every time a piece finds its way to its new owner..

I love all sorts of media and I search for high quality materials. i'm allways looking for materials that capture my attention, and spark my imagination.. it is my goal to create pieces that make you feel beautiful, strong, feminine, sophisticated, and sometimes also sexy and naughty :)
