Elisabeth Weinstock founded her eponymous, exotic skin accessories brand in 2011. The collection includes handbags, home furnishings and bespoke pieces for her, him and the home. Weinstock’s exclusive range of snakeskins and leathers are sourced the world-over. Each of her pieces are handmade, and Weinstock collaborates extensively with artisans whose knowledge of the craft has been passed down through the generations.
Weinstock’s creative influence is drawn from her upbringing in Los Angeles and an obsession with travel. She honed her finely tuned Southern California-meets-classic European aesthetic as an interior designer. In 2012, she began experimenting with custom furnishings and covered jewelry armoires in exotic skins. Soon, these pieces became her signature and The Box collection debuted at L.A.'s Maxfield boutique, and was featured in international publications. The first in the luxury market to introduce an exotic twist to sporting goods, Weinstock progressed to using exotic materials to sheath jewelry boxes, travel accessories, and ultimately to construct her now sought-after handbags.
While her pieces are available worldwide, Weinstock is firmly rooted in the Los Angeles design community. She opened her flagship store along West Hollywood’s West Third Street in a meticulously preserved 1930s building. The space is divided into three sections for each of her categories: the Living Room holds luxury furnishings, the Boudoir showcases her specialty jewelry boxes and handbags, and the Man Cave has gentlemen’s accessories.
The Elisabeth Weinstock collection can be found at specialty retailers internationally, including Bergdorf Goodman, Maxfield and Montaigne Market, and at elisabethweinstock.com.
