White Borromean chasuble in brocade fabric
The Borromean chasuble that we can see here in its details is made of precious white San Satiro brocade fabric.
The shape of this white Borromean chasuble is inspired by the Instructiones of San Carlo Borromeo, so, as can be seen, the dimensions of the vestment are reduced both in width and in length compared to a traditional chasuble.
A white Borromean chasuble with attention to the smallest details
The white Borromean chasuble is decorated with a tau on the front and with a stolon on the back, both elements embroidered on a white satin that reflects the whiteness of the brocade fabric. Topaz-colored crystals and white pearls are hand-stitched onto some details of the embroidery.
To frame the embroidery, a delicate golden trimmings, the same that runs along the entire profile of the vestment.
The gold of the embroidery is taken up by the golden satin that lines this precious white Borromean chasuble, a chasuble that lends itself very well to being used as a chasuble for priestly ordination.
