Festal Vestments in the 16th Century Style

Adjacent is pictured the new set of vestments recently completed by the Studio in the Saint Philip Neri style.

An ivory-coloured damask was used for these vestments. The ornamentation - according to the Roman style - was formed from silk damask in a shade of crimson, outlined with a braid in colours of burgundy, red and ivory. The braid is one of the Studio's unique designs. The chasuble is lined in red taffeta intended to support the colour of the orphrey.

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