Products that are handmade by Mount Athos Monks
The time on Mount Athos is different than the one in the real world. Monks who live on Mount Athos have devoted their life to prayer and spiritual work. Their daily life is shared between the long – devotional sequences and the chores at the Monastery. The resting time is not enough for them.
Apart from the sequences and the chores, Mount Athos Monks make a plethora of products as handiwork.
The product distribution to the public is the only way they have to make their living as well as for the maintenance of their monasteries or the renovation of the Holy Cells.
The incomparable quality of Mount Athos Products..
The quality of the Athonite products is incomparable. The pure and natural ingredients, the raw materials that they cultivate, the traditional recipes, the personal effort and the prayer that the Monks make while producing their handiworks, is what makes these products unique.
What is more, on Mount Athos there are no industrial areas. All products are handmade by Monks with their personal effort. This makes the production time longer, the quantity limited and the worth of the products, priceless with business terms.
As Monk Epiphanios from Mount Athos says, the distribution of the authentic Mount Athos Products, is a way for the Monks to bring people closer to God.
