A Tallit is a Jewish prayer shawl (in case you did not know). There are so many styles, fabrics, traditions, colors, and other features that are related to the tallit. Since I'm fund of it, i will try to bring here as many samples and information as I can (and free time I have) about the Tallit. Surely, if you want to contribute something, you are more than welcome to contact me. Thanks! Rachel

Another tallit article
The Tallit is being used by Jewish people, orthodox, reform, and others. As said before, the Tallit is used when praying and some use it as the Jewish wedding Chupa, so they can be traditional. Tallit prices are between $50 and even $1200. And again as said before, they are made from different types of fabric.
I found in a Tallit article, and here is some content from it:
Choosing the Right Tallit
"The real tallit meaning is a prayer shawl, which the Jews wear during their morning services, on weekdays as well as on holidays. Normally the tallit is woven out of wool. It has unique knotted and twined fringes, known as tzitziot, attached to all its four corners. The tzitziot are woven in knots by means of a complex process, which has number-related symbolic association."
