Gassot (thick) are each made from one strip of thick leather, with inserts that make them close flat. This is accomplished by a sophisticated manufacturing process that involves repeated application of several tons of pressure in industrial presses. The resulting batim are so rugged and durable that they can be repaired and reconditioned even if seriously damaged. They typically last a lifetime. The straps are fashioned from the upper part of the hide(retsu’ot elion).
Certified kosher and correct after proofreading by a qualified expert.
Size of the Batim - 34-35mm
Each set is accompanied by a computer check certificate and a certificate of the kashruth level.

Ashkenaz Beis Yossef - is usually used by those adhering to the Ashkenazi tradition, originating in Germany, England, Russia and Lithuania.
Ashkenaz Ari, Ari Zal (Nusach Sefard) - generally used by those following the Hassidic Sefard tradition from Eastern Europe, including Poland, Galicia, Hungary, Romania and Slovakia.
Hand Strap Wrapping Direction:
Counterclockwise - Beit Yossef, Most Ashkenazim wear the knot to be tightened (not to be confused with the knot on the base which is permenently tied and always worn on the inside, facing the heart) on the inside and wrap inward.
Clockwise - Ari (Nusach Sephard) Ashkenazim and all Sephardim wear it on the outside and wrap outward.
