These vestments were made from an English ecclesiastical brocade and lined in burgundy-coloured taffeta. The unusual decorative scheme is adapted from the French monastic style of the early - mid 20th century. A chevron in black brocade is surmounted by the traditional TAU orphrey and highlighted with narrow galloons.
The braid used for the orphrey is a new design of the Saint Bede Studio, being freely-based on Carolingian and Celtic decorative schemes.
