Holiday Shopping Guide - Talies

Trendy Turquoise Pouch

Today we're featuring another great international Etsy shop, Talies.  Tali is a mother of two, high school teacher, and artisan.  Many of her items are eco friendly and made with recycled and re-purposed goods.  Her shop includes some great gift ideas including stylish bags, nursery paintings, cozy pillows, and Mezuzah cases.  Tali is based in Israel, so make sure to shop early enough to allow for shipping.  Hanukkah starts December 11th, so there is still time to shop!

How did you get started crafting?
Ever since I can remember, I have been crafting.  I graduated from HIT University with an Art & Design degree.  After my first daughter was born I started to do it more seriously, and after my second daughter I opened my business, Talies.

Why did you decide on Talies for your business name?

Tali is my first name and I decided to write it in plural form because I am making so many things in so many areas such as bags, nursery decorations, paintings, fashion jewelry and more.

Do you have a muse?
I find inspiration in the materials that are around me, such as my trendy pouch. People who are taking only keys and their cell phone and want their hands free from carrying them, because it's hooked on the trousers.

Do you take custom orders?
I love custom orders.  There is so much inspiration in doing them.  I have customers who always want custom orders and I like to do it!

What does a typical day look like for you?
I teach product and graphic subjects in a high school, where I also run an eco-design program. After the day in school I'm working at home midst taking care on my two adorable daughters. After they get to sleep I keep on until midnight.

Where would you like to go with your business?
I would like it to be a world-wide bags business.  That would be my main working subjects.
