Hand-embroidered Linen St. Nicholas/Nativity Stocking
Includes an embroidered image of St. Catherine's Monastery (based off of a medieval sketch found in a book in the monastery museum) with Mount Sinai behind.
It includes the embroidered monogram "AK" for St. Catherine (Agia Katerina). The fabric in front is 100% linen, the back and liner is 100% cotton, and the embroidery floss is 100% Egyptian cotton.
These are embroidered by different women and there is some variation between them and compared to the ones photographed. Small is roughly 6.5"x14", medium is roughly 7.25"X17", and medium-large is roughly 8.5"X18".
Please wash by hand in cool water and hang dry.
Paidea Classics is working with the Bedouin in the vicinity of St. Catherine's Monastery, providing work for local women, particularly widows caring for their families, in the now impoverished area. This, in turn, increases support and security for the monastery.
