Filaxto - Red/Gold




A Filaxto is a small embroidered amulet that keeps you safe by warding off evil. It is a small religious cloth pouch usually pinned to the clothes of a baby on the upper left shoulder blade.

Not only are they blessed items but they are also worn to remind a person of their Orthodox Faith.

They contain either:

†       flower petals from the Epitaphios carried on Holy Friday night

†       cotton wool with oil and myrrh from church

†       pieces of olive branch or basil that have been used by a priest in some ceremony

†       dirt from the grave of a Saint

†       burnt candle shavings from a Church altar


Made in Greece by monks.
