The vestments for my husband just arrived! Thank you, they are beautiful and they fit! Please pass on my compliments and thanks to the sewing team- I sew enough to see the craftsmanship and skill in the fabric placement so that the crosses are lined up perfectly. The fit is perfect, the fabric is of the high quality , and tailoring is very skillful (and the customer service is excellent!).

Dearest Istok Church Supplies: I am most pleased to hear that your craftsman each handmakes and spends great service upon all products, rather than industrially reproducing your Church Goods. Thank You for Your Attention to the Beauty of All Products You Distribute. Sincerely: Cameron Converse.

Thank you for your help in replacing the wedding candles. These came in much better shape and I am very excited to be using them at my upcoming wedding. Thank you for being a part of our special day.

I ordered three icons & a candle holder. I’m moderately impressed with their quality; the candle holder’s writing didn’t have as much clarity as I thought it would have (some words are unreadable) & the icons’ embossing didn’t always match up with the original painting. The main reason for the rating is the shipping time, which took longer than a month). Other than that, I enjoy my purchase.

This order was shipped within 2 business days. Everyone knows that there are lockdowns and restrictions in flights due to the COVID-19. Yes, your parcel was waiting for processing for 2 weeks in the International sorting facility in Poland. We're not sure how one can blame us for something out of our control. Despite severe obstacles and sicknesses of our staff-members we're working for Orthodox community and hope to continue, with God's help, in the next year.

Very pleasantly surprised with my shirt from you, custom made to fit. I am truly thankful to you all for sending me the shirt. Thank you thank you!

I really like Istok vestments, and I make sure to tell people every time they comment about mine that they're from your shop. I also very much like giving the business to my brothers and sisters in Russia.

Dear Archpriest Eugene, Subdeacon Michael, Igor, and all the Istok people, I just wanted to thank you very much for the icon of St Panteleimon that arrived a couple of weeks ago in celebration of Nativity, along with the Nativity card that you sent. You cannot know what a deep blessing this was to me! The very day it arrived was a stressful day because of a serious health concern. To open the box and find an icon of St Panteleimon and to read the wonderful message on the card was a profound blessing! I cannot express how deeply grateful I am to you. Thank you!
