Being Creative With Fringes

Hebrew Israelite Clothing

 Zephaniah 1:8

And it shall come to pass in the day of YHWH’s sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, and the king’s children, and all such as are clothed with strange apparel.

What is “Strange Apparel” for Hebrew Israelites?

When it comes to clothing according to the law, Israelites are commanded to …

  • Wear fringes and a ribbon of blue on the borders of their garments.
  • Do not mix linen & wool together (different fabrics mixed together into one fabric)
  • Men should not wear clothing that pertains to a woman
  • Women should not wear clothing that pertains to a man
  • Wear modest apparel


The Law Requiring the Children of Israel to wear fringes & a ribbon of blue:

Numbers.15:[37] And YHWH spake unto Moses, saying, [38] Speak unto the children of Israel, and bid them that they make them fringes in the borders of their garments throughout their generations, and that they put upon the fringe of the borders a ribband of blue: [39] And it shall be unto you for a fringe, that ye may look upon it, and remember all the commandments of YHWH, and do them; and that ye seek not after your own heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring: [40] That ye may remember, and do all my commandments, and be holy unto your God.

Deuteronomy 22: [12] Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself.


One of my Shirts that I love, actually came with the fringes an just added the ribbon of blue to set the tone of who I am.


Fringes come in all different kind of styles an colors, this is a everyday jacket not to heavy not to thin but just right. These fringes are very sturdy and have there own significant look, I love them.



These are the first fringes I purchased. They are my small 5/8th brush fringes.  These can be put on a lot of different types of clothing and looks really good on jean jackets.



This is actually a cami that has very small loops as a fringe.  It Can be worn with a nice jacket if you want to dress it up.  I wear a lot of camisoles to work, tanks give you that fancy look if you put it with the right things.



This nice sleeveless shirt is for the summer.  I added nice black lace fringes to it.  You can dress this shirt up or down as it can be worn for many  different occasions. I love the black fringes it gives your clothing perfect definition it makes my clothing feel complete.


This is a very thin cover up, I wore this with one over my pretty Passover Dress that was sleeveless just wanted to add a little flavor to my coordination of style.



Suede Fringes are one of my favorites besides the small brush fringes, these come in all different colors they are perfect for any type of material.

Rather its on a shirt, skirt, jacket, cami or blouse, it just gives your clothing a unique look.


This is my “go to” jacket with the black suede loop fringes that offer a peculiar style of their own.  You just can’t put these type of fringes on any garment.  They look really nice with jackets or on the hem of a dress. These fringes speak for themselves.


All of these types of fringes can be purchased at Debs Lace & Trim’s website or your local fashion district or fabric store where you can find ALL sorts of fringes and ribbon of blue.



  1. Yes Lisa! Fringes do speak for themselves….. Reminders to us of our heavenly fathers righteous laws! My favorite to use is the beaded fringe. I love the way they stand out, and I love using the royal blue colored ribbon of blue upon them to set it off. So it’s clear to the world I am an Israelite. 😉
