Michal Taharlev is a Textile jewellery brand. After graduating her studies in the textile design department, Michal started to collect old and unused weaving looms and opened her own weaving studio in Tel-Aviv. In her work Michal tries to rejuvenate the traditional weaving practice while using modern materials and applications.
By using traditional hand weaving techniques, industrial metals are incorporated into woven fabrics, resulting in one-of-a-kind jewellery, which comes off the loom as one piece, ready-to-wear. The brand strongly believes that besides esthetics and design, jewellery can also tell a story through the different choices of materials and manufacturing process. The story is about simplicity, tradition and change.
