This golden Borromean chasuble is very precious, made of light shantung silk fabric of a beautiful intense gold colour. Its preciousness undoubtedly derives from its decoration composed of a tau at the front, and a vertical stolon at the back. Both decorative elements are embroidered with a delicate floral motif framed by golden trimmings that highlights the embroidery itself.
The Borromean golden chasuble is overall a play of colors that goes from the ivory of the stolons and the lining, to the gold of the embroidery and the agremano that embellishes it.
The Borromean golden chasuble basically has two main characteristics: the smaller size compared to a normal priestly chasuble and the gold color that distinguishes it.
The choice to reduce the size of the Borromean golden chasuble was inspired by the indications of Saint Charles Borromeo in his Instructiones.
While gold represents the color of divinity par excellence, and this golden Borromean chasuble is an expression of the royalty of Christ, king of the Universe.
