"Saint Bartholomew" Borromeon chasuble

A young priest from the Diocese of Rockville Centre (New York state USA) commissioned vestments made in the Borromeon form from the Studio. The chasuble (shewn in adjacent photograph) was made from a beautiful silk damask in muted gold and was ornamented with a damask in the colours of burgundy and gold, outlined with narrow braids, in the Roman style. The vestments were lined in burgundy taffeta.  This design, of which the Studio has made several, we have named Saint Bartholomew.

A matching dalmatic made for our customer is shewn in an earlier post.
