In 2012, on a visit to a gallery where she was selling her work in Hudson, NY, Lara Nadel came across a series of handbags showcased and was anxious to meet the designer. The following day, a studio visit was the turning point of a lifelong work and business relationship with her now husband, Moses Nadel. Together they decided to hone their skill sets and created the brand; Moses Nadel.
“I chose to name the company Moses Nadel for numerous reasons,” says Lara. “Nadel means needle in German so it couldn’t be more apropos. Moses is a very strong name. I
liked that. Also, I had a deep inclination that soon enough I would be joining the Nadel tribe.”
The couple opened a bespoke makers workshop where they designed and crafted all of their products to order in Bushwick, NY. Recently, they relocated to Sea Cliff, a small coastal town on the north shore of Long Island where they have recreated their atelier with a small team of local artisans who continue to tailor make every item one at a time. “Over the years the brand has matured and evolved in many unexpected ways. We started to work together creating leather and metal accessories and now we specialize in our own branded collection as well as luxury custom home interior products.”
Take a look at some of the artisanal pieces in their newest collection, here:
