Traditional Wool Tallit Made by Talitnia

Posted

For several years I've seen a popular tallit listed on Amazon under the heading, "Talitnia Traditional Tallit 100% Wool." The price was is good (about the same as our price), but we sell the same tallit with a number of perks that may appeal to prospective buyers.

  • On the product page you'll see an option for a matching bag for just $12.50.
  • We offer various other tzitzit options, such as hand-spun, thick and techelet (blue). I see from the Amazon questions and answers and product reviews that a number of people are not so happy with the default tzitzit option.
  • If you don't want just black striping, we sell the exact same Talitania Traditional Wool Tallit with black-silver striping or black-gold striping or blue-silver and blue-gold

Note that the black-striped traditional wool tallit includes an atara (neckband) with a subtle satin on white diamond and leaf pattern, whereas the black-silver and black-gold have the Tzitzit Bracha embroidered on the atara.

Also note that the Prima A.A. Tallit is very similar, with a slightly better weave.

For a few years tallit and tzitzit orders from San Francisco, California trickled in slowly, but in the past several months there seems to be a significant uptick. Also, based on what I can surmise from the order details, there are a number of frum tallit and tzitzit buyers in San Francisco. Two decades ago, about [...]

Tallit & Tzitzit Buyers in Florida

It seems to me that one of the main concerns of our customers in Florida is finding tallit and tzitzit products that perform well in heat and humidity. When I skim through orders from Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando and Jacksonville, I see a lot of purchases of our Kalit and Wool Comfort, which are light and [...]

Burgundy and Gold Striped Tallit

Our gold- and burgundy-striped tallit has become a big hit. I noticed that this week we got four orders for this tallit within one week (from customers in Memphis, Reston, Houston and Boynton Beach). We used to sell a nice gray-striped tallit with burgundy pinstripes, but Mishkan Hatchelet stopped producing it. That meant the only [...]

How much are my old tefillin worth?

I remember when I was about ten years old, while poking around in my grandmother's a"h closet I came across my grandfather's disused tefillin, which were already several decades old. I think he had passed away by then, and she wanted me to have them. I cherished that set of tefillin, but years later, when [...]

Buying a tallit in the "Occupied" West Bank?

Today we received an inquiry from a tallit buyer in Portugal, who ran into some complications trying to place an order. Then at the end of his inquiry he wrote:P.S. When we are asked to chose our country on a list on your website, it shows a "country" named "Palestine (Occupied Territory)". That country does [...]

I am looking for kosher pre-tied tallit strings for [...]

Tallit Buyers in Asheville, North Carolina

This week we sent two orders to Asheville, NC. That seems like a relatively large number, considering Asheville is a southern town of just 90,000 souls. It made me a bit curious about orders we've sent to Asheville over the years, so I did a quick search of our order files.Avid map readers sometimes scrutinize [...]

Murex trunculus tekhelet debate

Leading up to Parshas Shlach Lecha, the Jewish Content Network held a debate on Murex trunculus as the source of techeles. The first 20 minutes is also fascinating, but it's on a very different subject, the question of Palestinian Authority payments to terrorist murderers, so you may want to skip that.In support of Murex trunculus is [...]

What tallit did the Rambam wear?

Usually the questions that come my way are fairly commonplace: tallit sizing, atara questions, tzitzit options, shipping time, etc. But today I got a question that really caught me off guard.Do you know what tallit the Rambam would have worn? The truth is I don't, but I can venture a guess. I'm pretty sure it would have [...]
