Julian’s Lake Tahoe Tallit

The creation of Julian’s tallit was a family affair.  Julian’s (and Sasha’s) mom and grandma designed his tallit with Julian.

Julian, like his twin Sasha, wanted to express his love for Lake Tahoe in his tallit. However, his scene was a night time scene of the lake, with the galaxy of stars in a night sky and an appliquéd large, glowing full moon.  For his mountains, he chose a brown dupioni silk onto which we embroidered trees. This scene was sewn onto a beautiful medium blue silk dupioni.

On the back, he wanted a beautiful stylized tree of life that he had found, embroidered in black.

He also had 8 corners, and his atarah is a quote written by his grandmother.
