Yael Rosen Ben-shachar started Kisim in 2000, Inspired by the simple solutions of Japanese fabric design and the traditional leather craftsmanship of the Middle East, she began to design pieces that translate both femininity and modernity, which helps create the clean, fluid and fitted aesthetic she is now known for.
All of the Kisim handbags, totes, purses and shoulder bags are individually designed and carefully handcrafted.


Each Kisim model is firmly located on the conceptual axis ranging between neat, clear-cut,
elegant design and traditional leather craftsmanship. The result is a range of innovative
models, communicating contemporary femininity and a unique aesthetic statement; both flowing and fitted – a distinctive outline that has become the calling card of Kisim.
