Gili Rozin Tamam - MeDusa

Winner of the The BERNINA Best Handmade Handbag


2014 Finalist Gili Rozin Tamam MeDusa


How are your bags made?
MeDusa works with a few suppliers in the production process. A plastic factory provides sheets of plastic, which are later, used as the base material of our designs. We also work with a sewing workshop for basic sewing. All of the detailed elements showcased in the premium line; crystals, pearls, studs, are hand sewn in the MeDusa studio.

What is the primary material used?
The premium line is based on the shapes and inspiration of our Ornamentica line, which is a tribute to the old world culture and Far East design aesthetic. In this line, the plastic is combined with textiles reminiscent of carpets and upholstery and creates a playful juxtaposition of design traditions, one ancient and the other new. The premium line adds an additional layer of glamour and modernism to the basic Ornamentica line and shows the unique and beautiful outcome of combining inspiration from different eras and corners of the world.
