Deacon's Vestments, Brocade

Brocade deacon's vestments are the workhorses of vestments--they come in the widest variety of colors and there are many motif designs, from geometric to more intricate. Whether it's for an ordination or every Sunday use, brocade vestments are an excellent choice for beautiful, traditional vestments. 

Greek-style deacon's vestments include fully lined sticharion, Greek-style orarion (orarion that loops over hip), custom tailored cuffs, and vestment cover.

Russian-style deacon's vestments include fully lined sticharion with galloon "bib", Russian-style orarion (orarion that does not loop over hip), cuffs and vestment cover.

Most orders are shipped with 4 weeks.

How do I pick a vestment fabric?

You start first with what color you need--are these for every Sunday, multi-purpose usage (any of the golds are great for this), or is it for a specific liturgical season (for example, purple or burgundy for Great Lent, or green for Pentecost)? Once you've determined the color you need, simply look through the available fabrics and choose the one you like best. Some of my clients are drawn towards simpler, geometric designs and others love tri-color brocades with big motifs. I work diligently to curate my collection of brocades so you can't really choose a "wrong" one, but I'm happy to help you choose if you feel a bit overwhelmed! You can also read the "Which Colors do I Need?" article on the Info tab.

Please note: Some of the listings below show the full set of vestments and others show simply the fabric because I didn't have time to photograph the vestment (this happens frequently when I'm working on a deadline). If you have any questions about your order, please do not hesitate to email me at If you are uncomfortable placing the order online, I am happy to send an invoice and  payment link once we have determined the details of your order.
