On the Feast of Saint Thomas Becket

On this Feast of Saint Thomas Becket, we are pleased to present this set of vestments, prepared for a recently-ordained priest in Croatia.

These vestments are according to the Studio's Saint Martin style, but ornamented in a manner reminiscent of the famous chasuble of Saint Thomas, displayed with his mitre in the museum of the Cathedral of Sens, France (adjacent image).

Our customer's vestments were made from a very lovely shade of red dupion silk, fully lined in a golden taffeta. The distinctive ornament is formed from one of the Studio's unique braids, named Saint Raymund.
