The podriznik is an unadorned version of the stikharion worn by all altar servers and clergy, however this lighter and simpler version is worn only by bishops and priests, beneath all of their vestments, whenever they serve the Divine Liturgy.
In the Russian tradition, this garment is made exclusively of white cotton. In Byzantine traditions such as the Greek and Carpatho-Rusyn Churches, this garment is frequently more ornate or colorful, and is sometimes designed to match the vestments worn over it.
At Vesna Vestments, we can accommodate all of these traditions, and offer this priestly stikharion in several fabrics such as white cotton, or satin (in a variety of colors). Features such as double-galloon trimming and fringe are available upon your request. Please specify your preferences in your vestment Order Form below.
