Desiree Farkas

As a Toronto Judaic textile artist, Desiree Farkas enjoys the challenge of coming up with new designs.  Most of her tallitot are one-of-a-kind, while the challah and matzah cover designs are produced in small numbers. Her pieces are contemporary reworkings of such ancient Israelite/Jewish themes as the lunar cycles and the harvest.

The idea to make textile Judaic art came from Desiree's daughter, Edna Sandler.  The two worked together for many years until Edna became a teacher. Edna now works full time as an art teacher.
