About Woven Work's Custom-Designed Tallits
The celebration of your child's bar/bat mitzvah or wedding is an opportunity to create a custom-designed family heirloom. The memories of this special time can be captured forever in a unique hand-woven tallit. Through your selection of colors and patterns, you will help to create an original and exciting work of art to be truly cherished.
When designing a tallit there are three important factors to consider:
- The Fibers The fibers used in the tallit must be kosher. This means that the animal and plant fibers cannot be mixed, with the exception of silk, which can be used with either fiber.
- The Atara A tallit must have the decorative neckpiece, also known as an atara or crown. In a tallit by Woven Works, the atara is a personalized name or saying woven into the heart of the fabric, becoming an integral design element of the whole.
- The Tzitzit The corner fringes, or tzitzit, are specially knotted and coiled in a pattern that represents the wearer's total commitment to Judaism and belief in one God. Thus, the tallit enshrines the wearer with the essence of being a Jew.
I look forward to helping you and your family design your own special tallit for this spiritual life cycle event.
