Introducing our exquisitely crafted Handmade Monastic Amice, tailored to meet the unique liturgical needs of monks and religious priests. Designed to cover both the shoulders and the cowl (hood), our Monastic Amice provides a comfortable and traditional fit.

Crafted with meticulous care, each Monastic Amice is lovingly handmade using 100% linen fabric, which ensures a luxurious feel and guarantees ease of cleaning, allowing for the effortless maintenance of this sacred garment.



Monks and certain religious priests require an amice that not only covers their chest and shoulders but also their cowl (hood). It is made (preferably) with linen and is worn with the purpose of covering the top of his religious habit, including his hood.

An amice is a vital part of the Armor of God (Eph. 6.). Though a simple piece of white cloth it represents the Helmet of Salvation. And, like any helmet when engaging in battle, the amice is essential in the spiritual battle a priest must face when approaching the altar to say Holy Mass.


Before the priest places the amice on he recites the following vesting prayer:


Latin: Impone, Domine, capiti meo galeam salutis, ad expugnandos diabolicos incursus.


English: Place, O Lord, upon my head the helmet of salvation, that I may repel the assaults of the enemy.
