The History of the Turkish Tallit
These Turkish tallits became a sought-after commodity in various Jewish communities, particularly in Chassidic circles.
In 2008 it was found that Turkish tallits could no longer be safely assumed to be free of linen and therefore require rabbinic supervision like other tallits.
Echt Turkish (Tunis) vs. Kmo Turkish
The Echt features unique double-knotted fringes along the edges and is sometimes sold without an atara, because many who opt for the Turkish or Kmo tallit have a special, ornate atara sewn on.
