Step 1. Choose your stole shape
The first step in creating your bespoke stole is to choose the shape.This can be done to complement the style of a chasuble, or chosen as a stand-alone item. We can advise on the shape, length, fabrics, orphreys, braids, cords and fringes. Our most popular stoles are the Tufton, Gothic, Romanesque, Roman, French and Spanish. Whether you already have a stole design in mind, or are unsure where to start with the design, we are here to help. We can also add bespoke design elements and embroideries to commemorate a particular occasion. Contact us to start the conversation.
Step 2. Choose your fabric and braid combinations
We are pleased to offer over 200 exclusive fabrics, as well as a wide range of braids, cross appliqués, fringes and cords. Our experienced design team is on hand to guide you through the possible combinations, and to help with decision making if needed. For deacon stoles, a cord tie is sewn in on one side, which can later be removed after ordination.
Below is an example of another shape we offer, the Sarum stole, showcasing various elements you can choose.
This bespoke stole is in Watts Cream 'Gothic' silk damask, with contrasting Red/Gold Holbein orphreys, edged in Red/Gilt 'Diamond & Lay' braid, with a 2” Red/Gilt fringe, interlined and lined in dark red cotton sateen.
Additional extras are also available, such as a gold applique neck cross, or a matching cord in the centre of the stole for a Deacon stole. Shaped neck available on request.
