This Purple & White Reversible Stole is made of Brocade Fabric with cross design. It has embroidered Cross designs in metallic gold yarns on both the sides.
Stole: is a liturgical vestment composed of a strip of material around four inches wide and usually seven and a half to nine feet long. It has either a uniform width throughout, or is somewhat narrower towards the middle, widening at the ends in the shape of a trapezium or spade. A small cross is generally sewed or embroidered on the stole at both ends and in the middle; the cross, however, is prescribed only for the middle, where the priest kisses the stole before putting it on. There are no express precepts concerning the material of the stole, but silk, or at least a half-silk fabric, is most appropriate. (source: www.newadvent.org)
