Here is a brand new thoroughly Traditional Catholic design Cope in Marian shades. The cope is made in the full semi-circular style and the fabrics drape beautifully. Remarkably lightweight, due to the silk content. I have combined materials, trims, fringing and hand embroidered bullion goldwork sourced from all around the globe to bring you this Marian Cope creation.

I HAVE NOW ADDED THE BULLION GALLOON ALL AROUND THE HEMLINE - and the Cope HOOD has been moved higher up on the back of the Cope. The photos showing the trimming on the hemline show the corrected hood position.
Crafted from white on white Russian silk, this cope measures approximately 57" from the base of the neck curve at the center back. However, this would probably sit several inches below a clerical collar, so really, this cope could be classed as almost 59" in length. This is a good standard length for a cope.
The Cope hood introduces the latest bullion embroidered design for my Studio (as at 6th March, 2009). This is a unique, hand embroidered bullion emblem, which has been replicated from an antique vestment. Note that the IHS emblem is embroidered directly onto the Cope Hood fabric.
Imported French Bullion fringing has been applied to the Cope Hood.
LINING The lining of the Cope and hood is a pure, 100% silk, which I understand is hand woven in India.
BANDING: The 3" banding on the front of the Cope is imported British St. Dominic banding.
A gorgeous 1 1/4" gold bullion galloon has been applied to the Cope to form the front 'panels' and this quality trimming also adorns the cope Hood edge, as shown in the photos.
The Cope closes with Morse closure.
*** OPTIONAL ADDITION: I can add a narrow 1/2 inch, French bullion trimming around the hemline for you for an extra $US35.
This is truly a magnificent Cope, and offered at far less than I would normally be selling this form.
SHIPPING: The cost for shipping via Express Courier International is $US50.
Be quick for this special!
