Custom Tallit Sets
All custom tallit sets include a coordinating tallit bag and kippah. I will send you a rendering of what the tallit will look like before any work is begun. Here are the options:
1. Silk or wool fabric cut and sewn to your dimensions with 4 personalized corners, atarah and tied tzitzit – $450
2. Same as #1 with the addition of stripes in one or many colors. We will work together to determine placement and size of stripes – $500
3. Same as above but silk is doubled (self-lined), stripes or embroidered designs added as well as metallic threads and/or piping between the stripes – $650
Atarot and Corners
Unless the bracha (blessing) is very long, an embroidered atarah is $90 which includes computer set-up, silk or wool fabric, stabilizer backing, thread and any other materials. The neckband is hemmed, pressed and ready to be sewn onto the tallit. Designs placed at the ends are extra and based on the complexity and number of color changes. A contrast border is also an additional $50 charge which covers extra fabric, labor to cut the strips, sew and hem to the finished size. This often takes 1-2 hours!
Corners start at $100 for a set of 4. However, complexity of the design (stitch density), number of colors and finished size affect the final price. An embroidered hole for the tzitzit is stitched, if requested.
What other sewing services do you provide?
If you have a shawl or scarf that you want to make into a tallit, in addition to the embroidered atarah and/or corners, I can attach additional silk in a complementary color to make it wider/longer and embellish with stripes, borders or other embroidered designs. In the case of a lightweight fabric, a lining can be added. I can also attach the embroidered pieces to the garment and tie the tzitzit. Pricing is on an individual basis depending on what the job entails. I am happy to set up a time to talk on the phone to discuss the options. Please note: I do not work on garments made by customers or assemble a tallit with fabrics/trims sent to me.
As seen on other pages on this site, I also make coordinating accessories such as kippot and tallit bags. Prices start at $40 for a kippah and $70 for a bag. A quote will be given after the design is decided.
Many of my customers make needlepointed atarot or tallit bags. I can stretch and block the finished piece before it is assembled for a small additional charge. See example HERE.
All custom work requires a 50% deposit with the balance due before the tallit or embroidery is shipped.
