Weaving Creation, known as Maaseh Oreg in Hebrew, is a studio in Jerusalem's Ancient Jewish Quarter that preserves the craft of weaving tallises as practiced by the Jewish nation for thousands of years. The art of weaving, like most hand crafts, requires hard work, patience, precision and inspiration – traits rarely found in today’s fast-paced world.
The craftsmen, Yosef Gabso and Ori Farhan, put their heart and soul into each of their handmade tallit creations and feel a calling to preserve the ancient art of hand-loom weaving, with an emphasis on exquisite detail work, texture and vibrant colors. Fig Tree & Vine is pleased to offer a selection of six patterns in two sizes, small (22" X 73") [pictured] and large (50" X 73"). [See "Masada" for photo of large size.]
This tallis pattern we call "Negev": Shimmering earth tones of the desert alternate with a view of ocean blue.
All tallises are handwoven in 100% organic cotton, and come with a matching bag and kippah. The bag can be personalized with an embroidered name in Hebrew or English at no extra charge. Please allow 2-3 weeks weaving time plus delivery if a pattern is not in stock. If you would like personalization or have other requests, please send a direct query to email@example.com after placing your order.
