Adar Design

In designing the initial pattern structure, I call on classic styles, current fashion trends and whimsical inspiration to create handbags, scarves and Judaica.

Adar Bags for everyday are designed from leathers, and rugged fabrics with practicality and aesthetics in mind, while purses for special occasions range from simple elegance to dramatic glamour, using a combination fine fabrics, vintage jewelry and natural elements.

Adar Judaica includes pieces for both women and men, and include yamulkas (head coverings), tallises (prayer shawls) and chuppot (wedding canopies). These pieces are inspired by joy, nature and the stories of the recipients themselves while respecting all of the requirements of tradition. After scouring London antique markets, New York’s Garment District, Brimfield and suppliers around New England, I allow the designs to emerge from the materials themselves. From the design concept and embellishment to the final handstiched finishes, I complete every phase in my studio in Needham Massachussetts.

On this website and at fine craft show displays you will find  handbags, clutches, specialty bags as well as other functional adornments. Many pieces are one-of-a-kind and creating custom pieces for you is my pleasure.  Adar Design would be happy to work with you to bring your creative ideas to life. To discuss a custom piece, please use th contact form below, or email to 


Ms. Lassman has always chosen to create patterns rather than follow them. Her love of sewing began while creating skating costumes as a child. Later came pillows, curtains and anything unique to make each new apartment or living space feel like home. Always fascinated with color, texture and fiber, Ms. Lassman designs and creates beautiful and functional pieces to wear and to enjoy.

Ms. Lassman graduated from Washington University in St Louis with B.A. in Psychology and Dance and then received her M.A. from New York University in Dance Movement Therapy. Her career path began with providing Expressive Therapies to elders in Pittsburgh and Boston and inspiring creative movement programs for all ages. Committed to insuring access to services for seniors, Ms. Lassman worked in marketing and business development for geriatric care in the Boston area for over 10 years.

Originally from the Boston area, Ms. Lassman is now happily settled with her family in Needham , MA.
