Sometimes the face says it all.
Y came by yesterday with her mother to pick up her tallit and to tie the tzitzit. As I have mentioned before, she’s a quiet kid.
Her face was so completely lit up when she saw the tallit that I knew that I had nailed it.
The silk tussah has enough grip to it so the tallit is easy to wear once it is folded into place. Wearing a slippy tallit is annoying and distracting.
The stripe pattern reads like a traditional tallit, despite the imagery not being exactly traditional.
I like that it has appeal both far away and close up.
I look forward to seeing this tallit on Y this Shabbat.
