Anat Stein and Hadas Kruk are the designers behind Armadillo Judaica Lovers, a collection of religious artifacts and home decor that celebrates Jewish tradition through modern design.
Based in Tel Aviv, Armadillo's work is a reflection of the vibrant cultural scene in Israel, while staying connected to worldwide design trends. All items are originally designed and developed at the studio, and handcrafted in local artisan's workshops. Values of craftsmanship, community connections and fair trade are in first priority and therefore lead our production method. We can proudly tag all items "Handmade in Israel"
The collections evolve from holiday to holiday, we always aim to celebrate tradition and add interest, joy and playfulness to the holiday table. When people ask what inspires us to create modern Judaica, our answer, quite simply, is that our work reflects us. We are curious about roots and culture, holidays, habits, food, hosting, and also various aspects of Jewish street life. Our creative inspiration is a mix of what we love in design: the simplicity of origami, geometry and mathematics; the playfulness of games and puzzles; and of course, modernism – a design era we adore.
