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!

Good afternoon, It has been a few years since I've needed to purchase vestry or church supplies. This afternoon I was just waiting for the coverage of the Senate impeachment procedures to begin at two o'clock, so I began just cruising the web. And I found myself here. I have some very fine vestments obtained from Istok. They have served quite well, are well made and each of them beautiful. So if I haven't previously thanked you for your fine products and excellent service, I send you today my greetings and thanks. May God continue to bless each person involved with Istok at any level.
