If you are interested in having your albs or surplices hand embroidered, we have many vintage ecclesiastical motifs as exemplified in the photos shown. We can help you select the most appropriate motifs, as simple or as elaborate as you wish, with unlimited color selections.




Let us create and embroider simple to highly decorated traditional motifs that can be tailored to your albs and surplices. As depicted in the red & gold vestments above, your albs can be hand embroidered in white on white, gold, or any church season color of your choice. These beautiful motifs will take your albs and surplice collections to an heirloom level and add dignity, honor, and majesty to the Liturgy and Feast days of the church. These embroideries would make a wonderful gift for the ordination ceremony.

We can help create beautiful heirloom embroidery and work within the individual, church, or family budget. We provide free design consultation and can assist you in the entire process. We are familiar with the symbolic significance of these classic motifs and can therefore assist with selections and color choices. We can match any existing vestment. International requests welcomed.
