A '''Klobukklobuk''' is an item of non-liturgical [[clergy|clerical ]] clothing worn by Orthodox Christian monks [[monk]]s and bishops[[bishop]]s, especially in the Russian tradition. It is composed of a [[kamilavka ]] with an epanokamelavkion (veil) permanently attached.
Slavic Metropolitans [[metropolitan]]s wear a klobuk that is white rather than black. Archbishops [[Archbishop]]s and Metropolitans metropolitans usually wear a small jewelled cross on the front of their klobuk as a mark of their rank.
The Patriarchs [[patriarch]]s of some Orthodox Churches (for example, the Patriarch of Moscow) wear a white klobuk that is rounded on top, decorated with embroidered images of [[seraphim]], and surmounted with a cross. This is sometimes called a cowl. [[Category:Vestments]]
