Cathedral Cope - Gainford Brocade Copes

Many surviving ancient copes follow his pattern. With contrasting orphreys and rounded hood attached to the top of the orphrey

As illustrated made from Watts' own exclusive fabric Gainford this magnificent 15th Century design was used by Temple Moore in many of his church designs. Originally documented as a silver gilt and cut velvet.
This item can also be made in other fabrics - please see the selection of fabrics in the exclusive textiles section of this website. (The price will depend on the fabric used for the main body of the Cope, please see the price details at the bottom of this page.)
Like all our made-to-order Copes, this model is hand-made in our workrooms in Westminster, London by our team of expert seamstresses. All Watts & Co. Copes are made from three full lengths of fabric (to give a complete half circle) and they are all carefully shaped and fitted around the neck and shoulders. Our Copes are all fully lined with cotton sateen.
The standard length of our Copes is 60"(150cm). This can be varied if necessary (usually at no additional charge). Please supply the full height (crown of head to the floor) and chest measurement of the wearer with your order if you would like us to make the Cope to your required size rather than to the standard size.
This item is made-to-order, so please allow 6 to 8 weeks for delivery.
