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.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

You can choose your size in the pull-down menu in each listing

Each belt comes with a sizing chart. Still not sure? Figure out the distance between the most used hole and the very end of the belt including the buckle. The belts have standard 7 holes and from the third hole to the tip of the belt, it measures 7 inches. If you still have questions, feel free to contact me.

My preferred method of payment is through PayPal, or credit card .

Lifetime Guarantee

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.
