Two new challah covers, and a bit of news
Today I completed two new challah covers.
the text of this one comes from a kavanah/intentional prayer that is recited by some before reciting kiddush.
I had fallen in love with the straw colored silk shantung with the subtle stripe. I had thought it would be perfect for tallit making, but my clients apparently didn’t think so.
The lavender velvet border just makes the center sing.
The aqua velvet binding was a vintage steal I had found at Paron before they moved. I think it was from the 1950’s.
I backed and bordered this piece that I had shown in extreme close up in an earlier post.
I wasn’t able to get the colors to read properly so will have to make another attempt to take pictures.
The text comes from one of the z’mirot liturgical poems that are sung during the Shabbat meals. The theme of this poem in a nutshell is food and redemption.
And now for the news.
Eichler's is a long time Brooklyn based Judaica store. As of this week, they are now carrying some of my challah covers. I’m excited about this new venture and hope that it will be a sucessful one.
