BIirretta & Zucchetto
Colors of this headwear and pompons are strictly bounded with the rank of the priests. It is also important to understand the difference between two types of liturgical headgears. Biretta is a cap of four or three corners and often has a pompon – not necessarily in the same color. We offer both three and four cornered ones. Zucchetto, on the other hand, is a round skullcap. Available here is the type made of wool.
Before you buy the cap, check its correct size. For zucchettos there are three universal sizes: S, M and L. You can check the exact measures on the product’s page. For square caps we suggest taking measure of your head and then choosing the correct option on the page of a chosen piece of clothing.
Every priest can wear a black zucchetto – different colors come with higher ranks in the hierarchy. Same goes with birettas. Red headgear is for cardinals and purple for bishops. White color is associated with a pope. You can acquire all of these types here – in every traditional color.
