The Jewish museum shop in Vienna Gottfried & Söhne- has an exceptional concept - it is an Israel design shop (not a Judaica shop), such a fresh idea! and as far as we understand - the only exclusivwly Israeli design shop in all Europe! (and maybe the only one outside Israel !?) Thank you Elisabeth for featuring items from our studio, and showing them so beautyful on display.

Artistic Day Tour at Old Jaffa - Judaica Designers' Favourites

A sunny day, at Hol HaMoed Sukkot, was a lovely timing for 'Judaica Workers' next meeting.We met at Marit Meisler Judaica studio - 'ceMMent', located at a typical picturesque old Jaffa alley. Breaking routine in a colleague's inspiring studio - is so mind opening, always have a lot to talk about, jumping from one issue to another - from sharing our experiences with the contemporary Judaica market, to thoughts about financial issues. Located at a very artistic quarter of the old Jaffa, we were soon out of the studio for a walk. Although all of us wandered old Jaffa so many times before, with Marit and Laura we had the chance to discover new things.First and foremost - we visited the studio and Gallery of Frank Meisler, Marit's father...

Why we named our studio Armadillo? and how it works with Judaica? (plus a candy at the end)

We are always asked about the name of our studio - Armadillo. Not an obvious choice for a contemporary Judaica design brand.

That is right, there are no armadillo's in Israel. When we first had to choose a name for our studio, about 20 years ago - our main focus was educational projects for kids, we've designed games and hands on exhibits. We were looking for a logo that we could illustrate, and will have a nice sound. In addition - Hadas's father came to Israel from Argentina, where he was...

How did we know this was the right time to design a new Havdalah Set?

We are so happy with our new release - a minimalist Havdalah set, we consider it as a key item in our modern Judaica collection, it is much complex than many other Judaica items, and we want to take this opportunity to share the considerations and decisions we make in such process, from the very beginning, from the moment we decide what will be our next projectUsually - new items released every holiday, while the significant holidays are Hanukkah and Passover, with the Menorahs, dreidels, Seder plate, and Matzoh covers, all these artifacts are exclusive for Judaism. We enjoyed giving them all several design interpretations during the last years.In addition to these - Mezuzahs and Shabbat items are 'must have'...
