Say the blessing for donning tzitzit and then let this handwoven tallit settle lightly on your shoulders. Let its soft drape and elegant, shimmering colors connect you with the beauty of Divine Spirit. Know that this tallit was made for you with the intention of hiddur mitzvah (beautifying a mitzvah). May you feel sheltered beneath the wings of Shekhinah when you wear one of my tallitot.

This tallit was handwoven in fine linen (20/2 sett at 24epi) and tencel. This combination creates a fabric that drapes like no other. There is no way to capture the sensual quality of the actual hand of the fabric in a photograph.
Size: approximately 24” x 90” includes 7” of fringe on each end.

Each tallit that I weave is a unique piece of art. No two will ever be exactly alike. The ‘Color Cascade’ series was inspired by the sparkling rainbow colors seen in the mist of a waterfall.

Techniques:
The white linen warp is wound in sections and painted with fiber reactive dyes in a cascade of colors before being threaded onto the loom. The main weft is a teal tencel yarn. The combination of linen and tencel give the fabric a wonderful drape and the variation of weave structure add stripes of subtle interest to the cloth. The purple accent stripes are also tencel.

The atarah band is tablet woven in tencel and bamboo.
The inscription says the following:
Takhat kanfai haShekhinah - Under the wings of Shekhinah

The photos were taken before the band was stitched onto the dyed edge of the tallit with the fringes pressed under.

For those interested in the laws regarding tallit, to the best of my knowledge, the only restriction is to not mix linen and wool.

Custom orders are welcome. I can vary the colors, the size, or the fiber choices.

My Story:
Inspired by weaving the bima cloth for the Women’s Torah Project, I am now weaving and dyeing tallitot and atarah. My life’s work is to create sacred cloth. I pursue tikkun olam by making beautiful objects for people that support their spiritual practice. I weave or dye each tallit with the intention that it is for somebody. I think about each potential buyer and ask what they would want and let that help guide my decisions. I belong to a Reconstructionist Jewish Community, and I do not work on Jewish ritual objects on Shabbat.
