Vestments in the Lenten Season : 1

Purple vestments
In this Season of Lent, we are pleased to present some penitential vestments made by the Saint Bede Studio.

This particular set was made for a priest in North Dakota USA, a returning customer.

It is made from purple ecclesiastical brocade, this shade of purple being very similar to the colour of choir dress of bishops.

The chasuble is in the Studio's more ample style of Gothic, called Saint Giles.  Its ornament is formed from a simple braid in colours of burgundy upon taup, with some enrichment from another ecclesiastical brocade of a richer shade of purple.

The vestments were lined in a taffeta in a brighter shade of red.
