Red Tallit – More Info>>>
Israel is home to dozens of handmade tallit makers, but only a small handful weave their tallits on a traditional loom. Our red tallits, both in silk and wool, are made by Gabrieli, which has assumed a place among the world’s top handwoven tallit makers.
Gabrieli Red Tallit Sets
The weavers at Gabrieli Tallit produce an enormous selection of designs, from wool tallits in traditional colors – white with blue or black stripes – to cotton and silk tallits in bold patterns and colors, including the two red tallit sets shown here.
Handweaving lends Gabrieli red tallit fabrics a unique texture. Gabrieli red tallit sets are available in various sizes, ranging from 20 x 80 inches to 60 x 80 inches. The 20″ x 80″ size is narrow and is meant to hang down in front, while the 50″ x 80″ or 60″ x 80″ sizes are meant to be worn draped down the back, in accordance with the age-old tradition.
Because of the large range of designs, fabrics and sizes, even if you drop by the company’s galleries in Old Jaffa and downtown Jerusalem you won’t find every Gabrieli red tallit available in stock.
So if you have a fixed target date in mind (e.g. a bar mitzvah or a wedding) be sure to place your order at least a few weeks in advance. After all, weaving by hand takes time – even if you’ve been doing it, like the Gabrielis at Gabrieli Tallit and Hand Weaving, for over four decades.
Ben’s Tallit Shop is a full-service webstore. If you have a very particular custom red tallit in mind, we can help make it happen. Gabrieli is among the leaders in the use of vibrant base colors, so if you would like a bold red tallit, Gabrieli Hand Weaving is a good place to start. We work with other handweaving tallit makers as well.
Red tallit sets are available in wool or cotton. The wool is made using thick yarns that create a rugged, earthy look. Cotton uses thinner yarns that enable greater detail and result in a slightly thinner fabric.
Typical weaving time is generally 3-5 weeks (depending on the availability of the looms), and we have red tallit sets in certain sizes already woven.
