Each medal is a unique piece. Medals can be round or rectangular.
It is the shape that gives the identification of the name, in fact originally the scapular was formed by two large rectangles of fabric that had to be joined with two straps or strips made of the same fabric.
These must be placed on the shoulders, which in Latin is called scapulae.
The name escapulario or scapular derives precisely from the etymology of this word.
Passing through the shoulders, the two rectangles of fabric are let down on the body of the wearer.
To better explain one rectangle is positioned on the back and the other goes to rest on the chest.
The escapulario necklace has a meaning of Marian value, a particular devotion to the Madonna, where protection and help are asked.
The scapular necklace of the Madonna del Carmelo is given to children when they make their first communion, just as a symbol of devotion to the Madonna del Carmelo.
