“Tekehelet” was a light blue color used in the clothing of the high priest, the tapestries of the Tabernacle, and in the Tzitzit and Tallit. The color was produced from a “Hilazon” according to the Talmud (Tosefta Men. 9:6). 

Modern research managed to extract blue color out of Murex Trunculus , and “Ptil Tekhlelet” is a one-of-a-kind factory that produces and sales Tzitzit corners for Tallit dyed according to the Biblical command.
