Tallis Man is a boutique weaving studio located at Moshav Suva in the south west of Israel.
Ori Faran learned the art of weaving when he moved to the holy city of Tzfat during his spiritual journey more than 10 years ago. After 5 years of weaving in Tzfat, he opened a weaving gallery at the old city of Jerusalem with his partner and friend Yosef Gabso. Today Ori is the manager and master weaver of his own weaving studio - Tallis - Man, creating handmade prayer shawls and other custom made Judaica accessories for people all around the world. The inspiration for his art and creations Ori takes from the surrounding wheat fields and orchards, the silence of the Israeli desert and from the praying during the weaving process.
We start our weaving process by praying to god that will help us to put our heart in every tallit we weave.
We pray for the success of the men or women who will enjoy our creations.
The first step in weaving is to put the warp threads on the loom. Of course we do it by hand. All the threads are being rolled on the warping wheel. We roll over 47 kilometer of threads!
The next step is tying the warp threads to the loom. We have to be careful not to skip on one of the threads when we tie over 550 threads by hand.
After all the preparations the looms is ready. Now we can start weaving the talit using the weaving shuttle . We role the woof threads on the bobbin and simply take the shuttle for side to side in between the warp threads.
While weaving the tallis we pray and sing so our creation is full of joy and love.
After the talit is finished we take it of the loom. We have to knit the atarah and 4 corners to the talit, and then comes one of the most important thing putting the tzitzit on the 4 corners of the Talit.
After the long progress the Tallis is finally ready. We can feel the happiness of creating, and thank God for his kindness.
