This tallit gadol was commissioned by my friend James to be a timeless and unique ritual garment. The body is plain weave in yellow merino wool, with a flat center seam and hemstitched fringe. A blue square of improvisational overshot springs out of each corner, small windows of intricate crystaline structure, star fields, and waves. Tzitzit tied with 7-8-11-13 winds. Also in effervescent overshot, the purple and orange atarah marks the top of the piece.
A special band of wrapped cords bridges together the right panel. It responds to challenges in the weaving process, and now stands as a ladder or portal into the tallis's space of mindfulness.
