Prodotti di Pallio

The pallium (derived from the Roman pallium or palla, a woolen cloak) is an ecclesiastical vestment in the Roman Catholic Church, originally peculiar to the Pope, but for many centuries bestowed by him on metropolitans and primates as a symbol of the jurisdiction delegated to them by the Holy See. In that context it has remained connected to the papacy.


Essentially the same garment is worn by all Eastern Orthodox bishops, and is called omophor.

The Pallium is hand made in Rome in the finest soft lambs wool fabric and hand embroidered and finished to create a fully bespoke item.  Available with red or black embroidery, these are not to be confused with inferior or copied products available by some in the market - these are the genuine article, hand made in Rome and given out by the Holy Father.  At present, only the pope, metropolitan archbishops, and the Latin Rite Patriarch of Jerusalem wear the pallium.  When a pope or metropolitan dies in office, he is buried wearing the pallium. If a metropolitan (or, presumably, a pope) leaves his office before he dies, his pallium is rolled up and placed with him in his coffin.
