Custom Tallitot & Accessories

All work is done by me. I work closely with my customer thru phone, email and zoom meetings. When a design has been decided on, I send a close rendering of what the tallit will look like before any work is begun.  There are many options and the client can have as much control over the design as desired; for example: number of stripes, the width of each, amount of space between and size of corner squares. I work almost exclusively with dupioni silk and wool. I do not make tallitot from customer’s fabric with the exception of a scarf or shawl that is to be customized or a tallit that was woven on a loom. Although I work on a case-by-case basis, my complete tallit sets, including a coordinating tallit bag and kippah, start at $600.

Form-fitted tallitot (clergy or military) start at $400

Tallit bags (top zipper or front flap) with a lining start at $80.

Embroidered Atarah – starts at $75. Embroidered corners start at $20 each. Items are hemmed, pressed and ready to be sewn onto the tallit.   Designs placed at the atarah ends are extra and cost is based on the complexity and number of color changes.  A contrast border is an additional $50 which covers extra fabric, labor to cut the strips, sew and hem to the finished size.  This often takes over an hour!  If a client sends their garment to me, I am happy to attach the embroidery (usually for a nominal charge plus return shipping.)

A single silk kippah lined with a hidden buttonhole and clip is $70. A name and date inside are included. Specialty embroidered designs on the kippah are additional cost and determined at the time of the order. Bucharian kippot start at $90

Kosher tzitzit sets are available for $15.  Cost for me to tie them is $10.

All of ther items such as wall hangings. challah/matzah covers and wimpels are priced with the customer depending on the nature of the work.

Needlepoint Tallit Bags

Many of my customers make needle-pointed atarot or tallit bags.  I will stretch and block the finished piece before it is assembled.  For bags, I will supply a lining, zipper and cotton velveteen for the back side.  Prices start at $85.

Misc. Sewing labor is billed at $40/hr.

Other Sewing Services

If you have a shawl or scarf that you want to make into a tallit, prices for an atarah and corners are outlined above. If you wish to make it wider or longer, additional silk can be added in a complementary color. You can also add stripes/borders or other embroidered designs.  In the case of a lightweight fabric, adding a lining is another option.  Then the embroidered atarah and/or corners can be sewn on and tzitzit tied.  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 assemble a tallit with fabrics/trims sent to me.

PAYMENT OPTIONS

For online payments, I accept Venmo and Zelle. If you wish to pay by credit card, I will send an invoice. There is 3% cc charge for anything over $50. I will also accept a personal check.

All custom work requires a 50% deposit with the balance due before the tallit or embroidery is shipped.  No exceptions.
