A skufia (also skufiya or skoufos; Greek: σκούφια or σκούφος) is an item of clerical clothing worn by Orthodox Christian and Eastern Catholic monastics (in which case it is black) or awarded to clergy as a mark of honor (in which case it is usually red or purple). It is a soft-sided brimless cap whose top is flat and pleated (Greek style). Typically, monastics receives their skufia either when they first become a novice or when they are tonsured. A monk or nun who has been tonsured to the Great Schema will wear a skoufia that has been embroidered with prayers, crosses, and figures of seraphim.
High-ranking bishops (such as Archbishops and Metropolitans will sometimes wear a black or purple skufia with a small jewelled cross on informal occasions. A nun will sometimes wear a skufia over her monastic veil; while monks often wear the skufia (without a veil) when the klobuk or epanokamelavkion might get in the way of work.
