The Workroom of Maris Stella Vestments
WHO I AM
I am an independent Vestments maker, working in South of England. I am also Designer, Artist, hand and machine Embroiderer.
My purpose is to offer custom made traditional liturgical garments for the service of altar in any Church.
HOW THEY ARE MADE
All vestments are hand-made in my workroom. Patterns are designed by me from the inspiration of antique vestments and corrected according knowledge of tailoring.
I like very much to work with materials with natural fibers such as silk, cotton, hemp or man-made fibers. All are made in UK or EU and from trusted manufacturers.
As you have noticed there is no price shown in this website. It is a portfolio website mainly.
That's because custom-made commissions require a proper quotation. However in order to give some idea of potential costs, here are some basic prices:
Roman Low Mass set, 5 pieces: from £700
Gothic and semi-Gothic Low Mass set, 5 pieces: from £750
Solemn Mass Set (1 chasuble, 1 dalmatic, 1 tunicle and their matching accessories): from £1.950
Cope: from £850
Stole with tie: from £130
Reversible stole: from £220
Traditional Alb in pure linen from £330
Altar frontal, from £750
HOW TO ORDER
Any commission are made with care, fidelity of the traditions and love.
If any garment shown on this website could be made again, please bear in mind that other options are possible.
Indeed the choice of materials and style is quite wide. For example, traditional chasuble can have many different shapes: Roman, Gothic, Semi-Gothic or Conical. It is similar with copes, dalmatics and stoles.
Do you have your own project in mind, about any liturgical garment? I will be glad to discuss with you about it.
For any project, I offer a detailed quote with pictures and schemas. A deposit -not refundable- of about 50% of the final price is asked for validation of the project and for ordering any materials and to begin the work. Once the work completed, the full payment becomes due.
Please allow 2-12 months for completion depending of the complexity of the project, availability of materials and the current workload. However, it is possible to agree a deadline for specific occasions, please just ask.
Should you have any questions or inquiries, please feel you free to contact me via email:
