Rebecca J.’s Tallit

Rebecca loves owls and lotus flowers. When her mom first contacted me and asked me for suggestions about colors, I sent her several swatches from which to choose. Rebecca immediately chose this gorgeous green Cambodian dupioni silk. She then sent me photos of her favorite owls and lotus flowers. We worked together, sending countless emails, to design this beautiful tallit. The tree and leaves are all appliqued, and the owls and lotus flowers are embroidered. Because of the lotus flowers near the bottom, Rebecca chose to put her embroidered corners on the inside.
