This is the heaviest-weight garment offered by our store, available in 5-ply jute with ($18) or without ($15) bead work. This garment consists of one large turquoise-colored center skull bead surrounded by bone-colored wooden beads for a simple, rugged, and no-frills look. This is a devotional garment intended to be placed over the head and worn against the skin in front and in back during acts of prayer and penance. The bead work goes in the front; the cord goes in the back for adjusting the position on the body. Each cord is knotted with three tiny knots to represent the Holy Trinity. Special orders can be taken if you have a request for the garment to be made without beads, or if you would like special bead colors. I will make every attempt to accommodate special beading requests. Each garment will come enclosed with a verse from Sacred Scripture, or a quote from the saints or Our Lady, regarding penance and its importance.
