A klobuk is a type of religious headgear worn by eastern Orthodox as well as Eastern Catholic monks and bishops. The klobuk consists of two parts; the kamilavka, a round black hat with straight sides and a flat top and the epanokamelavkion which is a type of veil that covers the entire kamilavka and drapes over the shoulders and down the wearers back. Depending on the religious order wearing the klobuk, the epanokamelavkion is either allowed to drape freely over the kamilavka or it is perminantly attached.
