Yad Cheri’s starting point is its fascination with hands.

The hand is the most frequently symbolized part of the human body. Used for almost everything, every day, all the time. One expresses him/herself with his or her hands: They are a tool, a symbol, a weapon or simply a thing of beauty.The Yad Cheri online concept store celebrates these fascinating hands and invites you to explore a carefully curated & unique selection of products.

Collaborations are made with existing established brands but made also to introduce new emerging talents eager to be discovered.

The aim is to offer to customers an eclectic, fun and international selection. A selection of Lifestyle objects, small luxury gifts for any occasions.

Through THE SKILLED ONE page, each month Yad Cheri will feature the profile of one of its designers, makers or creators. Their narrative is shared along with a showcase of their work.

The TALK TO THE HAND BLOG features an on-going chronicle focused on a whole range of topics touching the hand. Written by multiple authors, each story-teller contributes in his own way to the story of the hand.

Hands & Design

Hands create a great and thoughtful design. The techniques can vary, the aesthetics evolve with time but it is the detail that transforms the objects. There is a story behind each design, each brand, and each creator.

Yad Cheri highlights the creator’s hands behind the design. Original gifts, hand shaped, for the hand or handmade.
