I designed this hand towel especially for the hand washing before eating bread and before eating the matzah during the Passover Seder. After all, a special hand washing deserves a special hand towel! The wave tucks evoke flowing water and the idea of mayyim hayyim –living waters– and spiritual renewal. I wrote a bit more about the background behind the design in an earlier post about the challenge of designing Judaica without using Jewish symbols. You can read that post here.
