This style of stole is named after St. Augustine of Hippo. It has a base fabric of silk dupioni with one small orphrey band and one large orphrey band on each side. The orphreys are made from the magnificent liturgical Fairford brocade. There is also a gold cross at the neckline and tassels can adorn the bottom edges. The stoles are lined with satin lining fabric and have a small chain at the back neckline to help the stole sit back from the neck by a small amount. These are not mass produced stoles, but quality handcrafted vestments that are made to be worn and last for years with proper care.
The Black/Gold colored stole is designs for use on Good Friday, and on other days where black vestments are worn.
The stole is 4 1/2" wide and tapers for a nice and comfortable fit around the neckline. Finished length is 53" excluding tassels.
