Sacral motives as embroidered works of art
In paramental embroidery, a special emphasis is laid on high quality materials, artfully designed motives and, of course, a relation to the sacral purpose for which the items are supposed to serve. The church parish gets best advice from us right from the beginning if they plan the purchase of a new church banner.
- At first, we talk with the relevant representatives of the municipality so that we can give them the best advice in respect to execustion and design.
- The next step is the production of small artworks and sketches in our design office so that you get a first impression about how the church banner is going to look like.
- After your approval of the small sketches we produce an artwork in original size that you can again check and approve of.
- Now, our embroiderers can start working and prepare the necessary embroidery materials and convert the artwork into a work of art.
The production of a church banner
For procession banners, Corpus Christi and mourning banners, our customers mostly choose precious fabrics such as brocade or silk. Our embroiderers put the sacral motives, the crosses, the monstrance or a picture of a Saint in different embroidery techniques onto the fabric and decorate the rims with gold and silver laces, cantille fringes and tassel sets. Thus the church parish have a precious work of art in their hands for decades and can make use of it during parades and church services in the liturgy.
