Ely Crown Liturgical Brocade and Trim

Ely Crown is a fabric design that has been around for a long period, yet this pattern is classic enough in its simplicity and beauty to be loved still today. There are two design motifs of the floras and crown, surrounded by an intertwining vine pattern. The above image is a copy that dates to the late 1800s or early 1900s which is made from Ely Crown. The cope is still in excellent condition and is still in use in the cathedral, although there are some signs of wear in the silk fibers in a few spots.
