About

How I came to do what I love and love what I do...

My name is Ishai Duiker, I live and create in Israel and I am the owner, designer and creator of Ishaor.
Ishai was a biblical figure, the father of King David, who lived in the city of Beit Lechem, the same place where Jesus Christ was born. I adopted this name, Ishai, after I came to live in Israel but I was born as Gerrit Duiker in Holland. Duiker, my last name, is the Dutch word for sea diver and I come from a long heritage of Dutch seafarers. This actually led me to my first encounter with handmade crafts. At the age of 10, my father, a captain in the naval fleet, took me with him on a ship he commanded, sailing to the exotic city of Casablanca in Morocco. While walking with my father in the old city, I was intrigued by the craftsmen we passed by and I felt a strong attraction to their work and watched them crafting the leather. It was then I held a knife and a piece of leather for the first time and tried to cut out and curve a creation of my own. It changed my life.

I started working in leather after quiting my job and decided that I want to do something else in my life something that I create myself.
I made some bracelets and a few belts and sold them on Queens day in Amsterdam, where I noticed that people like my creations.
I had never studied professionally or even taken any courses, which is probably the reason that my work, as I am told, seems different from most of the traditional leather wear. I developed by trying my own techniques, used tools and colors according to my imagination and can now say that I now feel I have my own original style.
I use simple hand tools and make each piece by hand out of a large full grain leather skin. I sell my work in some high end boutiques in Israel, and on several platforms online, as well in my workshop in the Florentin neighbourhood of Tel Aviv.
After thousands of sales and 5 star reviews I stand behind my creations, and offer a lifetime guarantee.
My inspiration comes from anything that has a interesting structure,from computer parts to motorcycles, bold, screws.

It took me about 30 years with several turnarounds in my professional life, to return to this constitutive moment in Casablanca, to this first love, and commit to the profession of leather craftsmanship.

Today my products are sold at the Nachlat Benyamin Art Fair in Tel Aviv, on ETSY and in selected fashion boutiques in Israel and abroad. Ishaor’s leather products currently include belts, cuff bracelets and hair barrettes but there are more to come in the near future. All products are designed and crafted by myself including most of the leather belts metal buckles. You’re invited to a virtual tour of my workshop in this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JG7ieiwJhTk.

As any artist, I enjoy getting feedbacks on my designs from customers but the most surprising and interesting feedback I get are on my logo which I spontaneously created with the initials of my born name, Gerrit Duiker (GD). Apparently, people who see it interpret the shapes and the letters in different ways and actually some of my products are a result of theseunique interpretations which they share with me.

I strongly believe that wearing my accessories lets people express their passion, stand out from the crowd and make a statement about who they are and what they believe through unique colors, symbols, shapes and designs. I hope you’ll find yours.

With Love,
Ishai.

Welcome to Ishaor on Etsy

Artisan of Quality Leather Jewelry, Accessories

I love working with leather. I use techniques I developed on my own, taught myself to work with whatever tools I need and combine colors depending on my specific likes and imagination. The result is a creation of an original style. To this day, I use simple tools and make each piece by hand, starting with a large piece of full grain leather skin. My inspiration comes from anything that has an interesting structure, from computer parts to motorcycles, bolts, screws or basically anything with a distinct, unique shape.

My belts are made carefully to ensure they are of the highest quality. With proper care and handling, these belts last forever.

Additional policies and FAQs
Some things to know when you make an order:

- I make my leather creations according to the information you give me, therefore YOU are responsible for giving me the right size.
- If the belts turn out to be a bit too long, you can shorten them easily and quickly with my instructions. The buckles are connected with screws so you can also swap buckles if you like.

What you need to know about the size is:

For belts:
Figure out the distance between the most used hole and the very end of the belt including the buckle. You can find instructions on the sizing chart in every listed belt in the last of the pictures.
The belts have standard 7 holes and I use the 3 th hole from the tip/tail as the center hole. The size will be based on that hole. The distance from the tip of the belt to the center hole measures 7 inches.
If you want more or less than 7 holes, please let me know.


When you give me the numbers of the size, take into account that you can choose 2 options to provide me this:

1. By our sizing guide, where the numbers are used as " /inches
Or
2. My jeans size, where the numbers are meaning jeans sizes, for example ( 32 US).



* If you're still having problems figuring out your exact belt size, put on your jeans and hold a tape measure over them. THAT'S your size!


Important note: I need to know what it is you are measuring. Measurements vary in different countries' so if you tell me 34 European size, that is not specific enough. I need the exact measurement, and if you are not sure what they are, don't hesitate to contact me.
You can send a belt back and it will be shortened' if too long' but the shipping will be on you.


For Bracelets: it's very easy to measure your wrist size. Tie a piece of string around your arm. Make sure it is not so tight that you feel it, and not so loose that it falls off. Cut the string and hold it up against a ruler. That's your wrist size.

Without getting your size, your order will be delayed. It is the most important detail, so please make sure to give your correct size when making the order. Once the belt is on its way, I can't make any changes!

All Ishaor products are completely handcrafted and colored separately. This makes every piece one of a kind.
I use premium vegetable tan leather which makes the belts last a lifetime, therefore I give a lifetime guarantee if the belts are used normally and are taken care of.
I double check every piece I work on to ensure quality, before and after making the piece.
If for some reason you are not satisfied please contact me and I will look into it, and try to find a solution.

Custom orders are welcome if you come up with a design or color that you would like made. The buckles on all belts can be changed for a different one.

If you have any questions please sent me an email and I will do my best to help you find a solution.

Lifetime Gaurantee

I make my belts very carefully from the best materials available. Each belt is colored seperately. making each item by hand, crafting the belts until they are perfectly made, ensures they are of the highest quality. With proper care and handling, these belts last forever.

What happens if you give me the wrong size?

Unfortunately, I cannot refund a belt made correctly to an incorrect measurement. Size is everything. Please explain how you got your measurement. Pant size' for instance, is not enough to go on. Therefore, if you are not sure how to measure your size, or if the chart confuses you, don't hesitate to contact me through a convo and I will gladly help you out. Getting a belt that you can't use is very frustrating and I want my costumers to avoid this.
If the wrong size results in a longer belt than needed, you may send the belt back and I will shorten it. Only shipping expenses, are on the buyer.
