Although they comply with the necessary requirements in terms of materials and colours, unfortunately many of the uniform for knight Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem commonly found on the market, are sewn by manufacturers who have little experience and skills in sewing solemn uniforms or garments.

In some cases, the manufacture is made according to an industrial logic, which means that all the capes and all the uniforms are produced in series, repeating a single model that does not allow any adaptation or any possibility of custom tailoring.


The result is evident: cheap and approximate uniforms for Knight Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, with rough decorations and sewn without care, heavy fabrics and synthetic materials, ideal to cause sweats and irritations.

As you already know very well, a Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem cape is not just a dress: it is a real Uniform. It is a symbol. And it is also the sign, visible to everyone, with which you will present yourself on the day of the Knight of Holy Sepulchre solemn investiture ceremony.

Moreover: through the uniform for knight Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, you express not only your image, but also the identity, the spirit and the history that your uniform embodies.

Find the ideal fabric for the uniform for knight Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem

The industrial production of uniforms for knight Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem is made of fabrics chosen among the most common ones, because they are the easiest to sew: usually they are heavy, synthetic-based fabrics or composed with a low-quality woolen fabric. The consequences are certain and unavoidable: a heavy cape, 3 kilograms of mixed wool and polyester to wear, which do not allow fluid movements and, above all, overheat the body, resulting in increased sweating.

So, which fabric should be chosen in order to have a suitable uniform for knight Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, capable of preventing the risk of sweating? Choose a light and fresh fabric, as my special 100% pure light fresh italian wool that I use in my creations. In collaboration with the master tailors of Progetto Liturgico, we have selected an exclusive fabric, 100% pure light fresh italian wool, made only for us: a fabric with an optimal weight that allows fluid movements and a proper transpiration, without being too light or fluttering.

Sewing the uniform for knight Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem: the attention to details

A solemn and worthy Knight of the Holy Sepulchre cape must be meticulously cared for, in every detail, just like every true uniform. This concept is simple as much as it is underestimated and forgotten.

In fact, unfortunately, in stores you can find capes made with extreme superficiality. All you need to do is look at the details: for example, the bottom of the cape cut with scissors, hanging threads or the exposed fabric selvedge. Not to mention the internal seams, which are made with carelessness and rush, remaining all frayed.

Another example is the use of accessories not provided by the statute.

In the picture above, you can see the old and huge frogs closure that I removed from a new customer's cape. I replaced them with smaller ones, in the form required by the rules of the Statute.

You really risk to buy a cape with frogs closure good for curtains, but not for a uniform!

Think about your everyday clothes, your uniform or your elegant outfit: would you ever wear a jacket with a roughly sewn lining or with a stiff and heavy neck? Would you ever want a jacket or a uniform with bad buttons?

Many times I have heard the knights complain about the fact that, during the ceremony, the cross slips inside the cape. And this only because the front does not close well.

I not only worked a lot to find the perfect line, I also believe that I have to guarantee my customers the maximum comfort. And that's why in my laboratory, my capes are always sewn with a double closure on the chest.

How many do this for you?

The quality of the finishes that we propose and that you have to pretend for your uniform for knight Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, is this:

  • neck made of white velvet;
  • double hook on the neck for your elegance and your practicality;

Sewing the uniform for knight Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem: the enhanced cross

Certainly the most famous symbol of the Order of the Knight of the Holy Sepulchre is the Cross.

The cross of the Order of the Knight of the Holy Sepulchre, emblem of the Kingdom of Jerusalem, is a so-called enhanced cross: a central cross with all the equal arms ending in a tau cross, with smaller crosses of the same type in each quarter of the large cross. In the total number of five, the set of crosses reminds the Knight of the five wounds of Our Lord Jesus.


In many of the uniforms for Knight of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem on the market, even the sewing of this important symbol is neglected: very often the crosses are made in an approximate way, using as material a simple cloth cut without the necessary precision.
And what about the seams of the crosses on the cape? No attention to the geometry of the seam: they are usually positioned without precision and care.

Do you want to receive a precise and perfect job instead? A job that makes your uniform for knight Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem a truly solemn garment like a priest's sacred vestment?

Ask those who have the appropriate professional skills and propose handcrafted solutions of high tailoring level and quality.

Personally, I decided not to make cheap decorations. When I bespoke a uniform for knight Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, I put the same commitment, the same care and the same precision with which I create priestly vestments, because I want every knight who relies on me, to be fully satisfied and proud of his cape and his uniform for knight Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.

For this reason, the cross of the Knight of the Holy Sepulchre uniform that I sew is the result of meticulous craftsmanship, with clean seams and precise cuts.

The cross of the Holy Sepulchre cape that I sew in collaboration with the tailors of ProgettoLiturgico, is embroidered with a precious red velvet, beautiful to see and touch.
