This mattah (pronounced: mah-TAH), or prayer stick, or prayer staff, is made of high quality materials, and carefully and artfully worked. All the scarves are hemmed. The lane beading is hand worked. All the leather is real; the feathers and stones are real.
I do not sell finished mattahs due to shipping challenges. If you are interested in purchasing the components of the mattah and assembling one yourself, please contact me. As for pricing, it'll be expensive--probably around $250. Besides time and travel expense required for finding and purchasing the raw materials, it also took many hours to turn, press, pin, and sew all the scarf hems. The hand worked beading took many hours. Braiding the cords, decorating them, stringing the stones, setting the cabochon--this is a very time-consuming project, as all quality hand work is.
