Tefillin Gassot (“thick phylacteries”) are made out of a single piece of thick leather shaped by repeatedly applying several tons of pressure in industrial presses as part of a complicated but delicate and exacting production process. The resulting battim (“houses”) of tefillin gassot are so thick and durable that they can be reshaped even if damaged.
