Bursa Bishop Made to Order Vestment - Burgundy Velvet with Gold Embroidery
Bursa was once a thriving commercial centre in Asia Minor. For centuries it was a leading centre for the production of rich gold embroideries and many of the finest Byzantine and post Byzantine silks were made there.
BURSA features rich gold and silver thread embroideries, embellished with thousands of tiny sequins.
We recommend a pure silk base fabric in a variety of colours, although lush velvets in burgundy or indigo are also popular with those who prefer an overall heavier set of vestments.
A matching CHALICE SET is available in burgundy, ivory, emerald green velvet or matching fabric.
As with all our made to measure vestments, you can add any of the hand embroidered icons seen on our website to the various pieces of vesture.
To order this vestment as is or to request variations, including the addition or removal of icons, please submit a Product Enquiry below.
