For the Season " Per Annum " 2015 : 3

The vestments described in this post were commissioned - together with a number of other vestments - for a Monastic Community in Brazil.  Adjacent is pictured the new set of vestments in the Borromeon style.

A remnant of old silk damask in an unusual shade of moss green was used for these vestments and special care was taken to ornament them in a manner which enhanced the distinctive qualities of the damask.

The ornamentation was formed from dupion silk in a shade of teal or turquoise, outlined with a narrow braid in black and gold and enhanced with applique also in black and gold. The ornament is arranged to form a small TAU orphrey. The chasuble is lined in taffeta in a shade slightly lighter than the colour of the orphrey.
