Rich patterns and colors are signature motifs in Maghrebi textiles (Northern Africa - Morocco, Libya), the inspiration for this deceptively simple ketubah. Stars of David are intertwined and layered to create the patterns for this ketubah. Above the text is "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine." Simplicity and intricacy together, create a sophisticated tribute to Jewish heritage of North Africa.
This design is beautifully legible at any size.

Inspired by the intricately woven textiles of North Africa. Red ochre, yellow ochre, turquoise, lapis, and green intertwine to create a layered pattern.
The repetition of shapes gives the eye a path to follow while not overwhelming the viewer.
The Hebrew typeface chosen is a square calligraphy-based font. Easily legible and beautiful. The traditional method of justifying Hebrew text is employed - some letters are lengthened to fill the rows. Each text is custom typeset, so that the lettering works for name lengths.
The English typeface is also a calligraphy-based font. Elegant and formal, it is beautiful enough to stand on its own. English only texts will stand out beautifully. To maintain the sense of Jewish connection, the English only texts will still have the "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine," quote in Hebrew and English (other quotes may be substituted at the couple's discretion).
Seen as a whole, the balance of space and pattern, color and shape, give a peaceful unity to this design. As with all designs from Ketubah Arts, the details are customizable and flexible. If you would prefer different typefaces, personally meaningful quotes in Hebrew and/or English, all of this is included in the price of the ketubah.
