One of the primary advantages of tapestry fabrics is their ability to withstand regular use. These fabrics are typically thick and tightly woven, which makes them strong and resistant to wear and tear.

Another advantage of tapestry fabrics is their beauty. The intricate patterns and designs woven into these fabrics are often inspired by religious themes and can include images of saints, jardiniere, birds, crosses, and other religious symbols. The rich colors and textures of these fabrics can add a sense of grandeur and majesty to any church service.

When selecting tapestry fabrics for use in church vestments, it is important to consider the intended use of the garment. Tapestry fabrics create lovely accents to chasubles, stoles, chalice veils, and burses. Tapestry fabrics pair beautifully with many of the yarn-dyed brocades in our collection of fine European Fabrics.
