On the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary

On this Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we are pleased to describe this Marian chasuble which we call Ave Maris Stella,  being in the Gothic Revival style.

The decorative focus of this vestment is an orphrey braid which is based on the work of AWN Pugin.  This braid is produced in two shades of blue (lighter and darker) with figured ornament in gold.

These vestments were made from an ecclesiastical damask in the shade of ivory and lined in a Royal Blue taffeta.
