Home - Head Dresses - Skufias


Skufias clothing, which form a part of canonical attire awarded to monks, nuns and Bishops, are a mark of honor. While nuns and monks are prescribed black colored skufias, clergy can don these clothing items in various liturgical colors such as claret, gray, violet, red and purple. Istok Church Supplies has an exclusive range of high quality skufias suitable for summer and winter wear. 
Skufias for All Sects
Among the various Orthodox Church orders, there are subtle differences in skufia styles. For example, the Russian one will have a pointed top whereas a Greek skufia or ‘skufios’ as it is called, will have a flat or pleated top. Nuns wear skufias over their apostolniks which covers their head, neck and shoulders. We offer skufias in a wide variety of styles, materials and standard sizes. 
Quality Options for Nuns
Skufias for summer are made from light, breathable materials such as linen, shirt rayon, shirt cotton, cotton blend, and rayon blend. They have soft sides to minimize irritation in hot weather conditions. The nuns’ winter skufiswe offer are made from fabrics such as wool, velvet and leather to keep you warm in cold winter months. We also offer black colored, durable apolostolniks made from linen, shirt rayon or shirt cotton that can be used to cover a nun’s head. 
Cozy Winter Skufias for Monks
