Kisim, I Design, and a GIVEAWAY

Remember I mentioned some good news in the my post?
In this post I will introduce you to a great new discovery of mine - Kisim Bags (by I Design)

A week ago I came in contact with Lihi, of I Design Distribution which a company that distributes quite a few Israeli accessory designers. I loved the idea and as I browsed their site I realized there are some exquisite pieces, but young, chic, innovative designers. I honestly don't think I can say much more but - check out their site (here), just have a look around, and I know you'll get inspired. You can also stay tunes to this blog, as I will be sure to write about some of the other amazing designers featured. 

As I said - young, chic, innovative along with neat, minimal, and crisp describe a brand I was introduced too via I Design called Kisim
It is a international brand that specializes in handbags, here are some photos from their latest Fall/Winter 2012 collection:

And now - Kisim Bags (by I Design) has been so generous by hosting a giveaway with me.
You will be able to win this - a  Jacroki notebook cover by Kisim bags.
Jacroki is a very innovative material which is eco-friendly and quite surprising in its texture (it's made mostly of recycled paper fibers and it's got a super nice feel)
I know a lot of you are starting your back to school/back to college/back to uni shopping quite soon. This piece is perfect for hiding those horrible paper notebook outsides, and just looking really chic. 
(I also thought this would make a very nice sketch pad covers - all you fashion design students out there!!)

So here is a photo of what you will get -
