Puginesque Vestments

red vestments
A priest from Germany, a returning customer, commissioned these vestments made in the Gothic Revival form from the Saint Bede Studio. The chasuble (shewn in the adjacent photograph) was made from an ecclesiastical brocade in a shade of crimson red. The vestments were lined in royal blue taffeta.

The orphrey braid used to ornament these vestments is one of several which have been especially designed by the Saint Bede Studio. A chasuble designed by AWN Pugin in the collection of Saint Chad's Cathedral, Birmingham, was the basis for the design of this braid.
