Cotnot Or is an inspiring example of a family-owned business. Avner and Noi started their small enterprise 15 years ago and since then they have been producing their wonderful handmade wedding clothes, kippahs, and hats for women.
Avner and Noi are a lovely couple, parents of four amazing kids, and proud residents of Gush-Etzion. They live in Bat-Ayin – a small but very beautiful settlement in Judea, the heartland of Israel.
Since they started their business, the demand for their gorgeous products has changed over time, and Avshalom and Noi have adapted to the needs of their customers. Today they are primarily engaged in making handmade kippahs for men and hats for women.
By the way, the story of their family business is really incredible. Once, Avshalom attended a very special music festival and noticed that the musicians were wearing black vintage-styled kippahs. The incredible music and the beautiful look of the kippahs gave him tremendous inspiration and moved him emotionally. The very next day he found himself at his sewing machine trying to make handmade vintage-styled kippahs!
Since then Avshalom and Noi have been working steadily in order to create unique 100% handmade kippahs and hats. Each product in their collection is one-of-a-kind, with each item made by hand in small quantities. They put their heart and soul into each of their items in order to convey the true and ancient spirit of Judaism that makes everyone feel encouraged.
