Handwoven “Midrash” Silk and Cotton Tallit and Bag


This tallit woven with fibers of rich silvers, blacks and whites is called Midrash, inspired by the stories we have been studying for thousands of years, and the interpretations that make them every present in our daily lives.

Each Advah tallit (Jewish prayer shawl) is a work of art, designed in Sarah’s studio in Boston. Advah is proud to partner with Indigo Handloom to create the fabric for each Advah tallit — a blend of cotton and silk, lovingly dyed, handspun and handwoven by artisans in rural India. They are heavenly soft and luxurious and dyed in unique and vibrant colors.

Indigo Handloom’s mission is three-fold: low-impact job creation, the preservation of the handloom craft and reducing the environmental damages of the textile industry. By making handwoven fabrics, the average Indigo Handloom weaver can support an average of eight family members. This partnership is an essential part of how we think about living out our Jewish values with each Advah tallit we create.

The tallit are sewn together in Massachusetts by five women who are bringing high-quality manufacturing jobs back to the state.

As each tallit is handwoven and made in small batches, no two are exactly the same. Set includes a bag.
