This set consists of a spanish cut (triangular bottom) Roman Tunicle set. The material of the garments is made of Damask fabric and the designs are fully hand embroidered with 8 shades of metallic gold yarn directly on the silk fabric. The tunicle comes with a matching fully embroidered maniple. The interior of the tunicle is interlined with soft felt for fullness and lined with matching Satin Fabric.
The Tunicle is the outer liturgical vestment of the sub deacon. It is worn at Mass and at solemn processions and benedictions. The colour of the tunicle should be the same as the chasuble the priest wears as per the liturgical colour of the day. As per the liturgical order, the Tunicle should be less ornate than the dalmatic and comes with only one horizontal band on the top near the neck. (source: www.newadvent.org)
