Tefillin Inspired Be-Share-Et Bracelets Now Fundraising

27 Jun

Founded in 2011, Be-Share-Et (pronounced Be-sheert) is a leather accessories collection which combines spirituality and high fashion. These products take their inspiration from Tefillin, the ritual leather straps and boxes traditionally worn in Judaism for morning prayers. For centuries Jews have adorned themselves with holy blessings using leather straps when praying. The ancient ritual has been upheld and is thought to be a devotional tradition performed while meditating.

Be-Share-Et leather accessories adapt this ritual for a fashionable twist. Each wrap contains a special blessing for different purpose: my beloved (Psalm of Solomon), blessing for health, blessing for financial success, blessing for love and marriage, blessing for spirituality, and the traditional Shema prayer.

Each prayer has been printed from its original calligraphy ~ which was hand written by Israeli artist and designer Rona Plotek. The leather materials used have all been imported from Italy and the current collection is made exclusively in New York City’s garment district.

Now through July 26th Be-Share-Et founder Cher Landman is running a Kickstarter campaign to fund the next stage of this functional art initiative. Learn more at the fundraising page here or visit the Be-Share-Et website here.

Do you plan on making any that are not leather? I am a Jewish vegan, and don’t eat or wear dead animals, and I prefer not to participate in the killing of any animals. It would be awesome if you made some that are eco-friendly, since that is where it is at now.

Thank you, Shalolm!
