Church Vestments and Textile Furnishings

 

Liturgical Fabrics &Trims

The St. Benet's Guild uses fine quality liturgical fabrics and trims   imported from Europe to make the vestments and church paraments.  On  the following pages we present examples of fabrics that we can use when designing liturgical textile projects. We also have additional fabrics and trims that you may choose from.  If you are looking for a particular fabric or trim, please ask about it.

The textile patterns in many of these fabrics and trims are adaptations or reproductions of designs that date back as far as  the Middle Ages.  Look at the paintings from the Renaissance period and you will find many of the same beautiful brocade patterns and trims  that we continue to use today for traditionally styled vestments.
