Just in time for the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, I am posting what has been a passion project, long postponed ~ a four-piece Marian vestment set with the theme of Mary under her title as “Mystical Rose.”
Blue, besides being the traditional color honoring Mary, has another significance for roses: a “blue rose” is held to symbolize a mystery, or unattainable love. (How wonderful that it IS actually attainable, though not I daresay without her help…)
The rose emblem was designed exquisitely by my brother John.
The base fabric is a liturgical metallic acetate, and the lining is “Canterbury” blue dupioni silk. The orphrey banding is the blue-gold St. Dominic’s banding from M. Perkins and Son in England.
For further questions about this set, or to inquire about purchase, please contact me.
