Vestment for Lent: II

The vestments pictured adjacent, commissioned by a priest in the United States, is to a design of the Saint Bede Studio titled Vezelay.  It is loosely based on the style and ornament of vestments found throughout the early mediaeval period in Northern Europe and England. 

The priest wished to have a Lenten vestment of a dark-coloured fabric.  These vestments are made from a Indigo-violet English brocade and lined in crimson red taffeta.
