Lois made me a custom tallit for the start of my rabbinical school journey. She offered to have a zoom call with me and took the time to go over all the options with me. She was quick to respond to questions and gave thorough and helpful responses, and the tallit arrived right on time. The final result was exactly what I pictured in my head. I couldn’t be happier!

Just plain gorgeous. Thoughtfully and speedily shipped. Notes on proper care and the background on the artwork were also included. Few sellers make Judaica of such quality and originality as Lois.

Item: Gorgeous and well-crafted. A tallit is a way to create a personal spiritual space, and this one spoke to my child, who has an upcoming bat mitzvah. The bag is also lovely, and I had an option of designs on the bag.
Shipping: Everything was packed well and protected. I opted for priority shipping, and I was notified when it arrived.
Communication: Excellent. I sent a question before purchasing, and Ms. Gaylord got right back to me with details, including design options for a tallit bag.

I love the symbol of the Sefirot. But I had to ask if it could be made in green, and Lois was willing to do that for me! It is quite lovely, not too big or small, with buttons instead of a zipper. I am totally happy with this. Great service!

I’ve been searching for years for a tallis that feels right for me in adulthood and this one really speaks to me. I’ve actually gone back to this tallis a few times over the year, just enamored with the detail and it’s brilliant design, but hesitant over making the final big push of purchase. I’m so glad I did. Lois was absolutely amazing and helped me with all my questions and concerns, and now having the tallis in my possession I can say it’s even more stunning in person! I love everything about it, and am grateful to have stumbled across this store awhile back. Thank you!!

I am over the moon - this tallit is stunning. I couldn't be happier with this gift for myself. Lois is a true artist of the highest order.

Beautiful work. Definitely worthy of the beautiful tallit for which it was purchased. Both tallit and tallit bag were purchased from the same artisan. All communications were immediate and clear. No confusion. The artisan went out of her way to combine the shipment of two separate orders made at different times in order to save me money. The shipment even arrived early. Based on the quality of the products and my experience with the owner, I confidently recommend her. I would not hesitate to again do business with such a professional. A flawless business transaction.

I cannot say enough about how pleased I am with both my Tallit, a true thing of beauty, and the service received from the artisan that produced it. My communications were answered both quickly and completely. The service was also very fast. The seller took the initiative to combine my two orders and ship them as one to save me and a second second transportation charge. I will definitely do business with this seller again.
Art that celebrates the threads of spirit that connect us all.
Weaver, dyer, seamstress - Creator of Ceremonial Cloths, that’s me. I began this journey by earning my Girl Scout embroidery badge and weaving on a looper loom and continued on through a bachelor’s degree and more recently a certificate in fiber arts. Textiles and fiber processes are my passion.
Ceremonial Cloths: I combine my passion for textiles with my love and deep connection with Divine Spirit. This work provides me the opportunity to be of service to both my customers and Spirit by creating pieces that I hope will inspire connections between the two. This is the work of my heart.
Is there is a cloth you want and cannot find? I can help you manifest your vision. By intertwining the skills I have been gifted with your ideas, I strive to create a framework for you to connect with Spirit, as you see it.
Weaving: The interlacement of threads to create cloth is one of humanity’s oldest endeavors. I am honored to be part of this ancient tradition. I have two large floor looms (one 4-harness and one 8-harness), a 4-harness table loom, and several smaller looms as well. On these I weave my tallit, atarah bands and other cloth.
Dyeing: Using fiber-reactive dyes gives me the opportunity to play with color, either by dyeing the warp threads before they are woven (tallit) or dying purchased cloth (challah covers).
Sewing: This is the first skill I learned as a child and have practiced my whole life. Over the years I have sewn everything from garments to tents and every type of fabric from the finest silks to heavy canvas and vinyl. So rest assured, anything I sew will be professionally done.
The jewelry I make for fun, and it gives me an excuse to buy beads.
Lois Gaylord, an abstract artist working in fiber and mixed media, is a maker of connections. Her work focuses on spirituality and connections and like a multi-strand braid, they interweave creating the path to her present ‘fiber-brained’ endeavors.
