Skepi Brothers is led by Michael and Andreas Boosalis, two Greek-Cypriot brothers from rural Northeast Pennsylvania. We grew up around a rich Pan-Orthodox community where we witnessed first hand the blessed bonds shared by the brotherhood of Orthodox priests. From Tanzania to Jerusalem, and from Serbia to Mount Athos, we've experienced the vibrant traditions of our Orthodox church around the world. On a particular journey back to our homeland in Greece, we discovered the living traditions of Byzantine vestment making.
Our driving purpose is to make the rich tradition of tailor-made vestments in Greece accessible to Orthodox priests and parishes worldwide.
Embroidered vestments have a long and storied history. They adorned our most precious churches and covered our most sacred icons.
Through our partnership with Amfion, we are proud to make this rich and storied tradition of embroidered vestments available to all priests and parishes around the world. Amfion’s craftsmen faithfully recreate our most precious icons and images with vivid color and detail. By harnessing an innovative collaboration of craftsmen and revolutionary, next generation embroidering technology, we are pleased to offer this once exclusive art form at an unprecedented value.
We teamed up with the Stamatiadis family, whose Athenian workshop has been producing fine ecclesiastical fabrics in Greece spanning three generations.
Our patterns are inspired by the traditions of the Church which have been carefully preserved and passed down for centuries.
This partnership enables Skepi to provide a tailor-made vestment to your personalized specifications at no additional cost.
