|Description: This brand new Eastern Orthodox Liturgical Vesture (Russian style) is used during liturgical ceremonies and does serve as a reminder of the beauty and magnificence of our call as Orthodox Christians: to worship God with our whole being-body, mind and soul.
This Priestly Vesture is made of yellow-old-golden liturgical brocade (a highly ornamented fabric) with interwoven dark-ruby silk-thread and golden metallic-thread symbolic signs (crosses and crowns) trimmed with golden metallic-thread galloon. All decorations (crosses and icons, 11 pcs) are hand-made. The Set of Priest clothing is woven following the long-established canons of the Christian church and is of very high quality.
Each set of priest vestments consists of a phelonion (chasuble), a sticharion (alb), an epitrachelion (stole), a zone (belt-like cincture), cuffs (epimanika), and an epigonation (palitsa). Please, take into consideration that each order is custom-tailored to your set of individual measurements and all accessories (embroideries and/or color of the sticharion) are chosen to match your vestments textile (GOLD remind us of the heavenly Jerusalem: "and the city was pure gold" - Rev. 21:18).
Size: All garments are custom-made to your measurements.
When measuring, please wear the type of clothing usually you wear under the vestments (if any). Please supply your actual measurements, and that if you require a loose fitting garment you mention it with your order. We will make the necessary adjustments for you. For more precise tailoring, we highly recommend that you have your measurements done by a professional (in your local alterations shop). To submit your measurements online, please go to our measurement diagram.
Washing & Care Instructions: Dry Cleaning Recommended. Remove all embroidered crosses and figures before cleaning. If you decide to iron the vestments use a low temperature and iron them inside out.
