A Festal Cope
A new braid, designed by the Studio and made exclusively for our customers, was used to ornament this cope of silk damask, lined in a pale yellow taffeta. This braid is named Saint Columba. Geometry is used to create diamond shapes, linked together with simple knotwork. This braid was inspired by Celtic and Cosmati ornamental schemes. This version of the braid is red, with ornament in burgundy and gold.
This cope matches a chasuble previously made by the Studio
These vestments were commissioned - together with a number of other vestments - for a Monastic Community in Brazil.
