The Season "Per Annum" 2020 : 4

Recently, the Studio completed a set of vestments in the style of Saint Philip Neri for the Oratory-in-formation of Saint Philip Neri in the Archdiocese of Brisbane (Australia).  

This set of green vestments was made from a beautiful English brocade and ornamented in teal green dupion silk, outlined with one of the Studio's narrow galloons.  The back of the chasuble was ornamented with a Cross, whose intersection was enhanced with a vesica in colours of black and gold.

Priestly Ordinations 2020 : 1

Notwithstanding the many difficulties faced by our customers in 2020, the Saint Bede Studio has completed a number of vestments for Ordinands in this tumultuous year.  In September, we completed a commission for a newly-ordained priest of the Pontifical North American College, Rome.  Our customer chose to have a set of festal vestments made.

The vestments were made from cotton damask in a bright white and fully lined in a wine-red taffeta.  The vestments were ornamented with one of the Studio's unique offerings, called Saint George.  The braid is in colours of platinum and burgundy upon a crimson background.

This set of vestments is in one of the Studio's Gothic Revival styles called Saint Benet.

The Season "Per Annum" 2020 : 3

For a returning customer, the Saint Bede Studio was pleased to complete this set of green vestments in the Gothic Revival style.  The vestments were made from a beautiful shade of green ecclesiastical brocade and were lined in a lightweight taffeta in a subdued shade of gold.  

The ornamentation was formed from one of the Studio's unique braids Saint Edmund, being used in a wider and a narrower form.
