Painterly Blue Stole

This blue stole looks like an abstract painting, but it's printed cotton fabric. Colors include: aqua, turquoise, royal blue, cobalt blue, a little green and purple, and a smidgen of chartreuse. Nice effect, like a soothing drink of cool water. See this stole here.

Wheat Clergy Stole

This new clergy stole has nice images of wheat in shades of beige, brown and white. It brings to mind the references to wheat and tares or wheat and chaff in Matthew. Subtle, dignified print.
I appreciate your comments and suggestions.

New African Fabric Clergy Stoles

Here are three recent additions to Shadrach's, Fine Handmade Clergy Stoles on Etsy. 
These stoles were made using fabrics from all over Africa: wax prints, batiks, and solids. I collected the fabrics in New York City's garment district in recent years. Vendors help me find the best examples.
