We are dedicated to helping you mark life cycle events and your weekly Shabbat prayers with ritual and beauty. Finding the right tallit (Jewish prayer shawl) should feel like coming home - soft textures and uplifting designs to wrap yourself in as you step back from the day-to-day and rise into moments of peace and connection.
We offer a wide selection of handmade tallitot, including traditional woven tallitot, printed silk and chiffon tallitot, and handwoven tallitot in vibrant colors. Our tallitot are for people of all ages, sizes, and genders. We especially love working with people who have never worn a tallit before and are excited to embrace a new ritual - contact us with any questions. You don't need to know anything about a tallit before reaching out, and we are happy to answer any question you have.
All of our tallit designs begin as watercolor paintings in Sarah's studio in Boston. Our handwoven tallitot are handspun and handwoven in India through a partnership with Indigo Handloom, which you can read more about here. Traditional tallitot are woven in Chicago, and sewn (along with our handwoven tallitot) in Asheville. Our silk and chiffon tallitot are printed and sewn in San Francisco. We source our Kosher tzitzit strings directly from Israel, and also offer our customers the option to source their own tzitzit strings if they prefer.
We make each tallit with love and a deep attention to detail, knowing they will last in your family for generations. We have shipped over a thousand tallitot, all over the world, and we would be honored to send one to you.
