Saint Martin chasuble

The Saint Bede Studio has developed this vestment, called "Saint Martin" for those who prefer a very ample chasuble. "Saint Martin" can be made in fabrics of deep shades of green, or red or purple and is derived from the semi-conical form of the mediaeval period. A brocade in burgundy and gold in the traditional "tau" form ornaments the chasuble. The chasuble is lined in a lighter shade of the base fabric.
