When considering a fabric for any ecclesiastical project, the first order of business is knowing which color is needed for which season. First: have your desired season in mind. Then know the color variations and choose a fitting shade. Pretty straight forward.
Our stole kits are available in both silk dupioni and various brocades. So there is a wide selection of materials and within those material options there are many color shades.
