Purple Saint Martin Vestments
These were vestments in the Saint Martin style: very ample. The vestments were made from a purple ecclesiastical brocade and simply ornamented with a narrow braid in colours of Royal Blue, red, gold and white. This is is a new braid designed by and made for the Studio.
Our young priest wrote this appreciation of the vestments:
The vestment is just what I was looking for: simple, to respect the penitential character of Advent and Lent, but at the same time, with the beautiful braid in the centre, a hint of the Hope that is to come at the end of the penitential season.
