Beautiful Hand Painted Womenís Silk Tallit by Nicole Curl and Jan Marie Lanier

Each of the womenís silk tallit in our collection begins as white silk. After the design is conceived, the silk is stretched and gutta is used to create the design. Liquid French dyes and watercolor techniques bring our garments to life. After the dyes are set, gold or silver accents are applied by hand. The Atarah is added to the neckband and tzizzits are tied to the four corners of the tallis.

This unique process promises that no two pieces will be exactly alike. Your prayer shawl will be completely unique. Each silk tallit comes complete with a matching kippah, tallit clips, and coordinating tallis bag. Read more about Nicole Curl and Jan Marie Lanier below.
