In our production of icons, we employ original techniques dating back to ancient monasteries including those of the monastery of St. Pantaleon, always using the best possible tools. Our icons are created on a traditional wooden base and are set in levkas, a chalk-based natural glue and background. The icon is printed on a silk canvas. A high-quality icon, with bright colours and the icon, seems like a hand-painted icon. cons that are made in our workshop all come with a certificate, attesting to their originality and the authenticity of our technology. The certificate is a guarantee of the high and long-standing quality of our icons.
