Liturgical Fabric Arts
Enhance the interior or exterior of your place of worship with fabric creations that complement the architecture. Arrange a visit of our artist or send photographs for her to consult as she designs fiber art that brings out the beauty of the architectural elements already present.
Choose from previously designed chasubles, stoles, paraments and banners, which can be executed in any of the liturgical colors. In creating liturgical vestments, the staff follows the directives of the U.S. bishops’ document “Environment and Art in Catholic Worship. ” For each vestment or banner, they aim to achieve dignity and beauty in design and form, in color and texture, and in materials used.
Bring your liturgical celebrations to life with color and movement! Outdoor banners express hospitality and add festivity. Inside, they create the mood appropriate for the feast or season, while enhancing or complementing the architectural elements. Processional banners highlight the action of the liturgy.
