For Gaudete Sunday 2019

Rose vestments
Twice a year, the Church breaks the tone of its penitential seasons by the use of rose-coloured vestments. Rose-coloured vestments were never commonplace and they still are not.

Many different colours have been deemed by the Church as acceptable as liturgical rose. Some of these are a salmon shade; some a silvery-pink, almost mushroom-colour; some close to what we would call Bishop's purple or fuchsia; and some red with overtones of gold.

We are pleased to feature these vestments in the Puginesque style, a commission from a new customer in Canada. The vestments are made from dupion silk in a darker shade of rose and lined in a subtle pink shade of taffeta. The orphrey of this chasuble is formed from our unique braid called Saint George.
