St. Hubert Brocatelle Fabric
St. Hubert, designed by Sir Ninian Comper, was first produced as a liturgical fabric pattern circa 1890. This design has been recently reintroduced on a church fabric and is still lovely for use in making church vestments. As with most of Comper's textiles, the inspiration for St. Hubert is of Netherlandish origin. This work comes from a 15th-century painting from the exhumation of St. Hubert. The fabric, made from a blend of cotton, silk, and metallic fibers, shimmers with accents of gold. While St. Hubert has a predominant right side, the fabric is also suitable for use on the "reverse" side, which makes for interesting design options. An example would be using the "right" side for the main body and using the "wrong" side for orphrey trim or accents. Set your creativity loose and see what can be done with this unique liturgical fabric.*
