Jennifer & Wendy
Jennifer Raichman (designer) and Wendy Hahn (project manager) are sisters, with a passion for simple and timeless design. We have taken a fresh approach to the traditional ketubah (Jewish wedding contract), for all couples to enjoy and cherish for years to come.
Best known for our Modern Heirloom Ketubah and our Ring Bearer Block™, we offer a variety of wedding heirloom products, no matter the background of the wedding couple. We strive to have a cohesive look throughout our design collection and many of our products are meant to be purchased as a complete look for your special day.
Giclee Ketubah Prints
We print with a pigment ink called UltraChrome by Epson, which produces vibrant, fade-resistant colors. We print on acid-free 100% cotton rag paper designed specifically for fine art digital printmaking. Ketubah comes with an archival black ink pen for signing.
Treasure the Old World charm of our bookcloth ketubah as the perfect way to honor the ancient tradition of a ketubah while maintaining a fresh and modern design aesthetic. Each ketubah is made to order, using Italian bookcloth paper with archival inks. Italian (Cialux) bookcloth is made of woven rayon which gives it an extremely elegant look and texture. Ketubah comes with an archival black ink pen for signing.
Each papercut ketubah is hand-cut and signed by Naomi Shiek. The papercut layer is a soft white paper. The layer under the papercut, can be done in several different color background options, or soft white to create a beautiful white on white look. Ketubah comes with an archival black ink pen for signing.
PLEASE NOTE: ketubah designs are printed on a high-end inkjet printer and are not hand-painted or handwritten in calligraphy.
Many of our products at Urban Collective couldn't be done without these few special artists:
Naomi Shiek: whose breathtaking papercut overlays grace our papercut ketubot and papercut wedding invitations.
Summer Hannah: our expert seamstress and crafter. Summer can take any of Jennifer's ideas and make it come to life. Most of Urban Collective's fabric/sewn products are handmade by Summer.
Lovely Home Idea: our "Ruffle Chuppah Canopy" and our "Draped Chuppah Canopy" is handmade and sewn by Lovely Home Idea in Lithuania. The friends behind Lovely Home Idea are Dovile, Auste and Vilma.
