Frontal in Saint Albert the Great Vestment Collection
Brand Ecclesiastical Sewing
This beautiful frontal is part of our Saint Albert the Great collection of vestments. This collection features Ely Crown Brocade with St. Dominic trim for orphreys.
Ely Crown Brocade is a liturgical fabric with a reversible design. Designed after the style of Augustus Welby Pugin, the fabric was first produced circa 1890. This ecclesiastical fabric uses two motifs: a Tudor Style Rose and a Crown. Select one of these designs, then move up or down, left or right, and it is surrounded by the opposite motif. This design style for motifs, which is sometimes referred to as "diaper," also places a motif in a repeating pattern along the diagonal of the fabric. This fabric creates a pleasing appearance for those gazing upon the altar which it will adorn. Our frontals are lined with satin lining and canvas interfacing helps create the perfect hang.
The available color combinations are Green Ely Crown with Green St. Dominic orphreys; Red Ely Crown with Red St. Dominic orphreys; Violet Ely Crown with Violet St. Dominic; and there are several options for Ivory. Ely Crown in Ivory can be trimmed with Gold, Blue, or Red St. Dominic.

Each frontal is hand made here in the US, either in Minnesota or Ohio. By hand making our vestments one at a time, we are able to focus on the little details that make a quality vestment, such as hand stitching the lining and ends. Due to careful attention to detail, frontals currently have a wait time of 3-5 weeks before they are shipped. If you need the frontal shipped sooner, please contact us and we will do everything in our power to accommodate.
