Hand embroideries for roman chasuble

ROMAN CHASUBLES

"And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity" (Colossians 3, 14)

 

The roman chasuble is a liturgical vestment used by priests during the service. In the liturgical texts, the term roman chasuble is often used as a synonym for chasuble. Both come from the same roman garment called “casulae”, used by the first priests to cover their ordinary clothes.

 

Over the centuries the original shape of this vestment has changed significantly, experiencing a size reduction: it was first shortened in the back part and then on the arms. Today’s shape resembles that of a guitar or of a violin.

We make roman chasubles in silk, silk satin and silk damask, all of which are made in Italy. Just like the normal chasuble, the roman chasubles are available in the four liturgical colors.

Our designer reinterprets ancient motifs and creates new designs. On request we make custom roman chasubles with the customer’s design.

The designs are copied onto the fabric and then hand embroidered. The feedback from our valued customers is that our highly skilled embroiderers create works of art which will be passed on between generations.

All our products are made in our laboratory in Tuscany, Italy.
