Soaring Wisdom Tallit

This tallit was commissioned for a rabbi by his cousin to commemorate his 25 years at his synagogue. With permission from the artist who created a metal sculpture with the rabbi, for his synagogue, this tallit mimicks part of the sculpture on a full size tallit. 

The fabric for the body is a 100% silk matka, and all of the books are various silks, either dupioni or an Italian weave.

The 8 corners and atarah were embroidered onto a silver silk dupioni, which was then put on a gold/black silk dupioni, and all couched around the edges with an elegant passementerie from Mokuba in Japan.
