Hand-Embroidered Palls

Thank you for visiting

All palls are hand-embroidered, using no machines whatsoever, as they were made for centuries. On average a pall may take anywhere from 10-20 hours to complete, depending on the intricacy of the pattern.

To order any items, suggest your own pattern, or for further inquiries, please email me at: stjosephspalls@gmail.com

The prices noted are suggested donations (SD) plus $5 for shipping, regardless of how many palls are ordered.

May God bless you!


What is a pall?

A pall is used in the liturgy of the Mass. It is a stiff, square piece of linen placed over the chalice in order to prevent impurities from falling in it.  Palls are embroidered with a large center cross and sometimes decorated with embroidery. 
Traditionally palls are made of pure linen.
'She makes fine linen and sells it in the marketplace'
(Proverbs 31:24)

All palls are made of 100% linen ( Libeco Legae Ecclestiacal Linen) of the finest weave.
The inserts are of the thinnest Plexiglas I can find as well, 1/32" and measure 6.5" square
Other dimensions happily made to order.

I would be happy to make lace to be added to a pall or purificator you may already have.
SD $1.25/inch for either lace design.

Linen Backing:


All palls come with an extra piece of linen with a simple red cross sewn on to the back side. They are stitched on at the four corners and can easily be unstitched, taken off and cleaned, if necessary. If you would like to buy a backing without ordering a pall, I ask a SD of $12 a piece.
