For the Season "Per Annum" 2016 : 7

The vestments shewn in the adjacent photograph were prepared by the Saint Bede Studio for a returning customer in the Diocese of Arlington, USA.

This chasuble, in the Saint Bede Studio's Saint Austin design, is made from an English ecclesiastical brocade and is lined in taffeta. The vestments are ornamented with a new orphrey braid of the Studio's own design in colours of green, gold and ivory upon red. The braid is a modern expression of a mediaeval exemplar and features the chi-rho emblem.
