This fair trade tallit and matching bag are hand-woven by Maya artisans in the highlands of Guatemala. The tallit is woven in an open weave for a sheer and lightweight effect. Golden thread is used to decorate the atarah and the stripe. Fringe on the tallis is hand-tied. By purchasing this tallit, you are helping community development happen through the economic development of women, who otherwise have limited ways to participate and contribute to the economic health of their communities. A beautiful mitzvah to inspire and enhance your prayer experience.
