Prayer Shawl in Tencel     

From the Jewish tallit to the Muslim keffiyeh to the meditation shawls found in Hinduism and Buddhism, the tradition of prayer shawls goes back millennia and spans faiths around the world.

In the Christian church, prayer shawls find their roots in the tallit (the plural is tallitot). While the maker of a Jewish tallit must follow very specific rules as to shape, fiber, and finishing, Christian prayer shawls have no hard or fast rules. Although dissimilar in their creation, these shawls are both physical reminders of love and hope—the cloth envelops a person much like a hug, providing comfort and warmth, both physical and spiritual.

Sarah Jackson shares her beautiful shawl creation with us, woven in shadow weave structure.
