Lenten Vestments : 1

Purple vestments
The Saint Bede Studio recently completed a set of vestments for a young priest of the Diocese of Steubenville (Ohio), USA, a returning customer.

These were vestments in the Saint Martin style: very ample.  The vestments were made from a purple ecclesiastical brocade and lined in a deep red shade of taffeta. They are ornamented with a narrow braid in colours of Royal Blue, red, gold and white of the Studio's own design. The distinctive arrangement of the braids is derived from the chasuble of Saint Thomas Becket at Sens Cathedral.
