House of Rose is a contemporary Judaica label that specialises in drawing on Australian themes and ancient Jewish symbolism. We use fine silks that are lightweight and cool for wearing and using in warm climates. Each piece is a unique artwork that is professionally tailored so that you feel ‘wrapt in beauty’. This follows the Jewish tradition of beautifying our rituals. In Hebrew this is called, ’hiddur mitzvah’.
Our principal designer, Larraine Larri, has been an artist and art educator for over 25 years. The products are inspired by her many years of rich personal study of both the visual arts and Judaism.
You will find one of Larraine’s tallitot on permanent display in the Sydney Jewish Museum as part of the Culture and Continuity: Journey through Judaism exhibition. See the ‘news’ section for more about this.
Here’s a portrait of Larraine that she made at the Andy Warhol exhibition in Brisbane
