Blaise’s Fishy Tallit

Blaise lives in Florida and loves to fish. He designed his tallit with sailfish, other small fish, pelicans and seagulls on a beach sometime around dawn, when the sky was just about to lighten.  At first I thought we were going to create a coral reef on one side, and the sea scene on the other. But Blaise wanted something more symmetrical and chose to create a seascape on both sides. He chose a pure white dupioni silk for the background and water and sky fabrics that were gorgeous with it. Once he got going on the design, he was a very decisive young man!

Blaise also plays Lacrosse, hence the lacrosse sticks on one of the corners.
