All Souls' Day

The Saint Bede Studio continually strives to prepare new designs to offer its customers, inspired by Tradition, but not a slave to it. Adjacent is pictured a new set of vestments in the Saint Martin style.  It is not too often that we have an opportunity to present vestments intended for the Offices of the Dead.

The ornamentation of the vestment featured in this post is formed with a new braid, designed by the Studio and made exclusively for our customers.  The braid is arranged in parallel lines to form a TAU orphrey. This braid is in a knotwerk design in colours of taup, burnt orange and black. The chasuble is of silk dupion, lined in taffeta.

The vestment described in this post was commissioned together with a number of other vestments for a Monastic Community in Brazil.
