Leah Lerner designs modern bags and accessories crafted in a palette of vibrant colors. A blend of totes, clutches, pouches and purses made for playful and fresh day to day style.
Born in Minnesota to a family of artists and publishers, Leah’s exposure to the creative world began at a young age. To pursue her dreams of a career in design she moved to New York to study at Columbia University (Barnard) and FIT. Over the years she worked as an accessories designer for American Eagle, Kate Spade, Liz Claiborne and others.
In 2009 she relocated to Tel Aviv. Inspired by the entrepreneurial spirit in the city, she opened her own design studio of handmade accessories and handbags.
Recently Leah moved back to the USA and continues to grow the studio together with her husband and business partner.
Her love for exploring shops and crafts has been a pivotal energy in creating the Leah Lerner vision - roaming the narrow streets and little stores that sell fabric, leather, zippers, hardware and other supplies. All Leah lerner materials are hand selected and are sewn with great attention to detail and fine craftsmanship.
Recently she has begun using hand painted patterns in her work, inspired by the art & pattern books collected from around the world. She is mainly influenced by the clean aesthetic of Japanese and Swedish design, as well as the raw beauty of African textiles.
