Bursa was once a thriving commercial centre in Asia Minor. For centuries it was a leading centre for the production of rich gold embroideries and many of the finest Byzantine and post Byzantine silks were made there.
BURSA features rich gold and silver thread embroideries, embellished with thousands of tiny sequins, lending these vestments a very festive character.
We recommend a pure silk base fabric in just about any colour, although lush velvets in burgundy or indigo are also popular with those who prefer an overall heavier set of vestments.
BURSA is also available with the Athonite or Russian high back yoke.
A matching CHALICE SET is available in burgundy, ivory, emerald green velvet or matching fabric.
As with all our made to measure vestments, you can add any of the hand embroidered icons seen on our website to the various pieces of vesture.
If you do not see it on the website, please email us photographs of any specially requested icons you may wish to include.
We hand embroider all our icons, so everything is possible.
