The Legacy of Judith Leiber
Judith Leiber, the American luxury brand is synonymous with elegance, style, and sophistication. Each product is executed with meticulous attention to detail and flawless hand-craftsmanship. Judith Leiber has re-defined the accessories category with products that are on the cutting edge of high fashion, while always remaining timeless classics. In addition to designing handbags and minaudières, the company also produces eyewear, fur, and cashmere accessories.
Judith Leiber, the founder of the company, was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary, where she studied the craft of handbag making during World War II. In 1947 Mrs. Leiber and her husband Gerson Leiber immigrated to the U.S. and after many years working for leading New York handbag manufacturers, Mrs. Leiber launched the Judith Leiber Company in 1963, with the support of her artistic husband. The couple sold the company and retired in 1998.
Judith Leiber creations are a cut above the competition; incomparable in quality and craftsmanship. These artful handbags and minaudières are part of the permanent design collections at The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, The Smithsonian Institute in Washington, The Houston Museum of Fine Arts and the Los Angeles Museum of Art. Adding to Hollywood’s nearly 50-year love affair with the brand, almost every First Lady dating back to 1963 has carried these custom-made bags to the U.S. Presidential Inauguration ceremonies. Judith Leiber is truly an iconic American brand.
