Most people are looking for either a traditional tallit with black striping (or white-on-white), or a colorful tallit, but there are also plenty of tallit buyers looking for a nice gray or gray-striped tallit, which I suppose in some ways is somewhere between the traditional black-striped look and vibrant striping.

The options available are factory-made wool tallits with gray striping, handmade wool tallits with gray striping or handwoven tallits in wool, cotton or silk, with gray striping, or even a gray base color.

In the realm of traditional-looking wool tallits with gray stripes, we have a Maalot tallit with gray and hints of burgundy and gold. Be aware that not all sizes are available, so you might want to check with us before placing an order. Another option is the Tashbetz with gray and silver, a very popular tallit featuring an anti-slip fabric.

Among modern designs, you will find two Yair Emanuel tallit sets, one gray-on-gray and one gray-on-cream. Both are made of raw silk and feature geometric striping patterns. Moving up in price, Galilee also makes an attractive handmade gray-striped tallit known as the Gray Classic.

And finally, Gabrieli Hand Weaving offers several designs on a gray base: the Gray & Black, the Joseph’s Coat Gray, which has vibrant rainbow striping on a gray base, Storm Clouds, which has more sheen with hints of green and gold, and the Gray & Silver.
