We reported a short time ago that the Israel economy and high cost of living was threatening the young talented businesses of Israeli designers.
We are sad to learn today that Rhus Ovata announced on their Facebook page they are closing down their operation for the time being due to the inability to survive without compromising quality. A more detailed Hebrew message was also found on their Facebook wall.
You can see Rhus Ovata items we’ve featured on Dreed*Tea here. There’s even an article applauding Rhus Ovata for their more affordable designs that are comparable to more expensive out of reach labels.
