Made of hand-spun and hand-woven raw linen. On the basis of many sources. Examples: mosaics from St. Michael’s Monastery in Kiev- 12th century, St. Theodore Tyron – icon from 1200 A.D. in the New Treasury of a Monastery of St. John the Evangelist on Patmos, the scene of the Birth of Jesus in the Monastery of St. Catherine on Sinai (12th century), miniatures in a Vatopedi Psalter (12th century). Due to thick arrangement of a textile around the calf, this element was also an additional protection. It could also appear as the only form of “footwear”.
