A '''klobuk''' is an item of non-liturgical [[clergy|clerical]] clothing worn by Orthodox Christian [[monk|monastics]] and [[bishop]]s who follow the Slav traditions. It is composed of a [[kamilavka]] covered with an epanokamelavkion (veil) that are attached to each other.

Generally speaking, [[metropolitan]]s in the Slavic Churches wear white klobuks, as a sign of their rank and honor, while [[bishop]]s and [[archbishop]]s wear black ones. Also, [[metropolitan]]s and [[archbishop]]s who have been awarded this honor wear a small jeweled cross on the front of their klobuk. This is not the case, however, in the Churches of [[Church of Serbia|Serbia]] and [[Church of Bulgaria|Bulgaria]], where [[metropolitan]]s use black klobuks, and the white klobuk with the jeweled cross is reserved for the first hierarch of the local church (but in the [[Church of Bulgaria|Bulgarian Church]], [[metropolitan]]s may also be awarded jeweled crosses for their klobuks). The practice of [[Church of Bulgaria|Bulgarian Church]] coincides with that of the [[Church of Romania]].

The [[Patriarch]] of [[Church of Russia|Moscow]] and all Rus' wears 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 in English, although this is inexact.
