Barbara Shaw Gifts
Unique fun, bright and modern gifts that make you smile! Everything designed and made in Jerusalem.
Barbara Shaw is a chain of three stores in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv and Raanana.
After searching for gifts and not finding what I wanted, I decided to produce my own. I saw a gap in the market for bold, well designed and packaged gifts; items that are practical and beautiful. I started with modest aprons, tote bags and dish towels.
I started the business in 2008 with one seamstress and my son who had just finished school with a line of bold themed kitchen textiles. The line has now expanded to include designs on ceramics, serving-ware, wood, glass, stationary, perspex, baby gifts, a Yiddish line and t shirts.
All products are made ethically in my workshop in Jerusalem. I work with a range of talented designers and artists. Each product has a tale to tell. Our aim is to touch people’s hearts and strike a chord with their heritage and family background. People enter my stores and start smiling, hence my tag line “Gifts that make you smile:)”
At Barbara Shaw, my diverse team is committed to excellence on all levels – design, production, fulfillment and customer service. I have a background in Fine Art, Archaeology and Business, which brings flair, design experience and management skills to Barbara Shaw Gifts.
