Description
 
A traditional filakto (also known as an amulet) made by Greek Orthodox nuns. Size is 1" x 1".

Filakto is a Greek word referring to something that keeps you safe by chasing away the evil. It is a small religious cloth pouch pinned to the clothes of a baby on the upper left shoulderblade. Sometimes the mother also pins a cross and/or the "mati" to the baby alongside the filakto. The filakto is a blessed fabric - filled with dried flowers from the Epitafio of Holy Friday and pieces of the Holy Altar vestments and Priest vestments.

Beautiful! December 27, 2017
Reviewer: Christina Armstrong from Providence , RI United States  
I ordered 2 filatika for my new grandson  because I wasn’t sure which color would be best. I ordered the white one and the blue one. I would have liked the blue one with silver but that wasn’t an option. If that becomes available, I will be reordering that one. They arrived on time and as advertised. They are perfect for  my new grand baby. Thank you for giving us a place to purchase these. We do not have anywhere here in Rhode Island that I have found that sells these.
