Established in 1963, Judith Lieber is the standard for impeccably crafted evening bags. As the only woman admitted in the Handbag Makers Artisan Guild in Budapest, Judith soon found herself to be a master, with her creations to be shown in world renown museums in years to come. The Judith Lieber studio, based in New York, sees the 2-year process of each bag from concept to creation where they travel to Florence for refinement and later back to New York where they are hand painted and set with Austrian crystals over a 5-day period by one artisan. The fun and eye-catching tomato clutch display the eccentricity of Judith Lieber’s passion for bringing ordinary items into the world of glamour.
自1963年創立以來，Judith Lieber 已然成為完美晚裝手袋的行業標準。作為布達佩斯手袋工匠協會的唯一一名女性設計師，Judith的大師天賦很快被發掘，而她的作品也陸續被世界各大博物館收藏。Judith Lieber的工作室位於紐約，每一個手袋從概念創作到成品都需要兩年的時間。手袋先在佛羅倫薩完成基本形狀，然後送回紐約手工上色並鑲嵌奧地利水晶，僅鑲嵌就需耗費一位工匠五天的工時。
