The Hospitaller Knight Cloak by Marto is an all-cotton-made cloak of black fabric, with a Maltese cross sewn onto the fabric. This cloak is the typical wear of a knight hospitaller, in the traditional colors of black and white. The Hospitallers, known officially as Knights of the Order of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem, were founded in Jerusalem during the first Crusade by the Italian friar Gerardo da Sasso to assist the pilgrims traveling the Holy Land. His successor, Raymond du Puy, finished the work with the creation of an armed branch composed of crusader knights. It was at first a charitable order, while the Templars was from the first a military one. Despite its beginnings and troubles, the Knights Hospitaller have remained even to this day, so celebrate the most-tenacious order by wearing the Hospitaller Knight Cloak by Marto!
