Saint Martin vestments

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 Saint Martin style - an ample cut of chasuble.

This restrained but elegant set of vestments was made from crimson-red dupion silk and lined in a slightly-contrasting shade of silk taffeta.  The ornament is also simple, being a column front and back.  These columns were formed from one of the Studio's unique braids, Saint James, laid upon a panel of brighter-red dupion silk and outlined with a narrow braid in burgundy and gold.
