Ave Maris Stella

The Saint Bede Studio is pleased to announce a new range of vestments specifically for Festivals of the Blessed Virgin Mary. This is called Ave Maris Stella. The decorative focus of this new vestment range is an orphrey braid which is based on the work of AWN Pugin.

This braid is produced in two shades of blue (lighter and darker) with figured ornament in gold. This braid was designed by the Studio and is only available through it. The braid can be used on fabrics either brighter white in colour, or ivory and can also be used to decorate dalmatics and copes.

The chasuble shewn in the adjacent photograph was produced for a priest of the Archdiocese of Galvaston-Houston USA. It is made from a silk damask and lined in a vibrant blue dupion silk.
