About

The MEIRAV OHAYON brand offers a line of leather bags and Jewelry for women. Its pieces combine functionality and simplicity with raw and edgy style.

The MEIRAV OHAYON label offers a line of distinctive handmade leather bags and jewelry. Our pieces combine simplicity with artsy style. Our collections of handbags and jewelry go beyond the ordinary, incorporating textures, styles and elements you simply won’t see elsewhere.

“We don’t see things as they are. We see things as we are.” – Anaïs Nin

Designer Meirav Ohayon believes that a woman’s accessories should reflect her lifestyle and tell a story of who she is. Inspired by art, fashion, craftsmanship, architecture, music, and people, she creates original pieces intended for open-minded women who move comfortably between bold statement and timeless classics.

For this reason, in every bag she creates, as a final, playful touch, the designer hides the handwritten words, “ceci n’est pas un sac” (this is not a bag). An inspired homage to Magritte, we believe that when a woman chooses accessories, she is making a statement, selecting an outward expression of how she sees and depicts her inner uniqueness.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Tel Aviv-based designer Meirav Ohayon draws on her background in costume and stage design for modern dance and fringe theatres to create pieces that are both modern and edgy, classically simple, and always dramatic.

Her transition to creating bags and jewelry was a natural shift, as she searched for ways in which women could create a look that would accompany them and project their own individual personality through one-of-a-kind statement accessories.

From 2003 and 2008, Meirav designed bags under her own label, mishi. In 2015, after a short and successful career in the fashion industry, as well as the birth of her two children, she launched her new collection under the MEIRAV OHAYON label.

THE HANDBAG COLLECTION
We at MEIRAV OHAYON are proud to offer a line of individual bags that make a powerful statement about the woman carrying them.
In this collection, designer Meirav Ohayon returns to her longtime passion of handcraft and integrated drawing.
Every bag in our range is completely unique, created from a combination of nappa leathers and an Italian vegetable tanned leather that is processed slowly using natural vegetable-based ingredients.
Because it is not treated with chemicals, the leather is absorbent. This quality makes it the perfect material for the designer’s interplay between design and hand-drawing with black ink, using a brush, creating one-of-a-kind pieces. Using wax thread, Meirav also personally creates a hand-sewn line-sketch that no sewing machine could possibly replicate, transforming each bag into a unique piece.
When the bag becomes yours, the leather will be affected by the way you wear it, and will age beautifully, enhancing its personality and complementing yours.

THE JEWELRY COLLECTION
We at MEIRAV OHAYON believe jewelry should be bold but natural and authentic, true to the woman who’s wearing it and her values.
In this jewelry collection, designer Meirav Ohayon makes use of leftover smaller pieces of leather to create a unique collection of leather jewelry that integrates handcraft, sculptural qualities, and her passion for drawing right into the design.
Because our vegetable-tanned leather is processed slowly using natural ingredients, such as wood and plants, it is absorbent and pliable, allowing the designer to sculpt the jewelry. As with our line of handbags, this leather provides her with the ideal medium on which she draws directly on the leather using a brush and permanent black ink. The waxed thread she uses to hand-stitch each piece is a direct continuation of the motifs of her drawing, often incorporating the primal glint of copper wire as well.
All jewelry is handmade to order, and as it is crafted from natural materials, will age beautifully as you wear it, enhancing its personality as it becomes a signature part of your look.

CARING FOR YOUR MEIRAV OHAYON ACCESSORY
At MEIRAV OHAYON, we create all our accessories out of the highest-quality materials, which will last for many years with proper care.
Our bags and jewelry integrate components made from naked Italian vegetable-tanned leather. Because this leather is water absorbent, rain, grease and other liquids may cause staining that is difficult and sometimes impossible to remove. If the leather gets wet, wipe off any residual water with a dry cloth and allow it to dry naturally, away from direct heat. Avoid color transfer from dark clothing onto the vegetable-tanned leather.
TIPS:
Avoid storing makeup loose in any natural leather bag, since it contains oils that can cause staining.
When your bag is not in use, store it in the included dust bag, filled with bubble wrap to help it maintain its original shape.
It is recommended to put on vegetable-tanned leather jewelry only after applying perfume, once the perfume has been absorbed into the skin.
When jewelry is not in use, store in the included box in order to maintain its distinctive shape.
