PRODUCT INCLUDES >>>

This set of diaconal vestments consists of a sticharion (dalmatic), an orarion (orar, deacon's stole) and cuffs (epimanika, manacles). Because all garments are individually hand-tailored, small variations in design, color and pattern should be expected.

The STICHARION is the main vestment worn by a deacon. It is in the form of a cross with an opening for the head and has wide sleeves - a long, open down the length of the sides, full sleeved tunic that reaches the ankles usually made of the same vestment material as the priest's phelonion.
The ORARION (diaconal stole, Greek: ὀράριον; Slavonic: Орарь, orar) is a narrow stole, usually four to five inches (127mm) wide and of various lengths, made of brocade, often decorated with crosses (three, five or seven) embroidered or appliquéd along its length. It is usually trimmed with decorative banding around the edges and has two banks of fringe at either end. In the Greek traditions, the orarion is longer and in loop hip-style, and besides hanging down from the front and back, it is wrapped once diagonally under the right arm and over the left shoulder. In Russian practice, this "double orarion" is in diamond hip-style and is an award given to deacons for length of service or other distinction. Protodeacons and archdeacons also wear the longer orarion.
The CUFFS (Epimanikia, Greek: ἐπιμανίκια) are worn around the wrists and laced with cords underneath sticharion's broader sleeves.
