Custom Fabric Tallit

Custom Fabric for Tallit

Last month, I received a message from a woman looking for a custom tallit. Our conversations started the same way they do with all my clients. She explained the colors and patterns she was looking for (blue paisley) and I went off looking for the perfect fabrics. This time, however, none of the fabrics I found were quite right. Either the fabrics were too heavy for a tallit or they were the wrong color. Nothing I could find was exactly what she wanted.
 
So we decided to get creative. We found a paisley print that she liked and got permission to print it onto fabric for her tallit (below left). I then scaled it to the size she wanted and sent it off to Spoonflower.com to have it printed onto organic cotton sateen fabric. The result was a beautiful print that didn’t require any compromise (below right).

Once we had the fabric, we decided on a solid navy with gold paint for the atarah and she selected a quote from Psalm 136.

I’m really excited about this new way to provide the exact fabrics my clients request and can’t wait to see what other fabrics I get to design and print in the future! Looking for your perfect tallit? Contact me at heather@sewingstories.com
