She became a leather-goods designer by popular demand!
"I made one bag for myself, and everyone stopped me and asked me where I got it," says the Israeli native, who was an interior designer at the time. The amazing reaction Anat had received to her luxury leather handbags inspired her to venture in to wholesale and create her own line of unique luxury leather goods. Seven months later, she was wholesaling a line of bags and belts at the California Market Center in LA.
The Anat Marin Leather Collection defines unique and beautiful designs specially hand crafted for women and men. A collection of traditional and innovative designs reinvented with new shapes and colors that bring a crisp and edgy sophistication. Always using the finest and luxurious leathers, exotic skins and materials while never compromising style and comfort. Various luxury leather handbags feature signature details, customized hardware, unique stones, and handcrafted stitching. And it doesn't stop there! While leather bags are her staple, the designer does not fall short when it comes to meticulous design and perfected fit of apparel pieces such as leather jackets, dresses, and pants in addition to scarves, belts, bracelets, legwarmers and other luxury leather goods and accessories!
The Anat Marin boutique opened in Calabasas in July 2012. The boutique has created quite the buzz in the community as the unique store to watch. In addition to leather handbags and accessories the boutique has an eclectic vibe with Anat’s one of a kind sculptures adorning the high ceiling walls as well the massive handmade leather framed mirrors and candle holders. Today her first handbag hangs on the wall of her boutique as a testament to her humble beginnings.
While still somewhat the new kid on the block, Anat has made quite the impact amongst fashion leaders in the community all the way up the celebrity style chain. You can find Anat Marin luxury leather bags on the likes of AnnaLynne McCord, Kim Kardashian, Sarah Jessica Parker, Vanessa Hudgens, Jessica Alba, Hilary Duff, Rhianna, Alessandra Ambrosio, Charlize Theron, Felicity Huffman & more!
And while style, fashion and art are the key factors that bring Anat to work every day with the drive to create a new masterpiece, social responsibility is not lost on the designer. Anat Marin makes it a point to run multiple fundraising events to support a handful of charities, in addition to support local schools and non-profit organizations throughout the year.
