Another Approach to Violet Vestments

We are pleased to post a description of a set of vestments for the Penitential Seasons, which was a gift to a young priest of the Diocese of Richmond (USA).

These vestments are made from an Indigo-violet dupion silk and fully lined in dupion silk of crimson colour.

The vestments are ornamented with a new braid specially produced for the Saint Bede Studio.  This braid is derived from orphrey braids designed by AWN Pugin.  In 2012, further Puginesque braids will be manufactured for the exclusive use of the Studio.

Ad majorem Dei gloriam.
