Priests have worn long light-colored sleeved garments that resemble the Lord’s chiton since ancient times. Their colors and fashions imply that a priest is called to lead a pure and chaste life.
Today, an Orthodox priest sticharion (podriznik) is a liturgical vestment. It is worn as the undermost vestment. Priest sticharions are made from silk, linen, viscose, koshibo, and rayon. A priest sticharion is a long robe fastened at the neck. It has embroidered crosses on its back and vents on its sides. A sticharion has narrow sleeves that tie at the wrists. The lower hem of the sticharion is usually decorated with embroidery, galloons, and fringe.
Experts who work in the sewing workshops of St Elisabeth Convent make both Russian and Greek Orthodox priest sticharions (podrizniks). Thanks to their high professionalism and a wide diversity of textiles they use, they can make a church vestment according to the parameters you specify in your order.
