Galilee Silks offer exciting handcrafted luxury silk products. They specialize in making beautiful Judaica items and tasteful, modest fashion in high quality hand dyed raw silk. Based in Kibbutz Beit Haemek in the Galilee, in northern Israel, this thriving enterprise began as the brainchild of kibbutz member Shlomit Azati in 1992. After her mother passed away she sought a creative outlet and persuaded the kibbutz to let her use a small workroom as a studio.
Shlomit began her business making scarves and soon expanded into Judaica items and apparel. Nowadays she runs Galilee Silks together with designer Hadar Zaks, and the company employs 20 women. The company prides itself on its environmentally friendly production and cooperative work environment. The kibbutz based studio includes workers from nearby Arab villages and immigrants. These dedicated ladies are all fabric artists and skilled craftsmen who constantly strive for superior quality and beauty.
Galilee Silks are a leading silk product designer with gorgeous results. Their advanced repertoire allows for them to create a diverse range of Judaica and household items including tablecloths, wine bottle covers, challah covers, matzah covers and kippot. They are particularly renowned for their beautiful handcrafted Tallitot and offer both men and women’s designs in an array of styles and colors. These unique Israeli-made items make fantastic gift ideas for Bar and Bat Mitzvot, weddings, and Jewish Holidays.
Galilee Silks focus on combining high quality silk with vivid colors to create luxury products and are always seeking innovation in their creations. Their stunning painting techniques allow each item to be unique and are made with care. Their exquisite fashion collection reflects a natural, flowing look with unusual designs and offers scarves, ponchos, sarongs, t-shirts, vests, skirts and accessories such as handbags and necklaces.
