Embroidered with gold.
important liturgical vestments kept in the Vatican Treasury include
some complete groups (composed of cope, chasuble and planets,
stoles, maniples, veil, etc.), such as: the eighteenth century
vestments in fabric embroidered with gold which were made for
Pope Benedict XIV; the "Vestments of the Bride", which
are called so because in the height of the eighteenth century,
they were donated by a Roman princess who sacrificed her wedding
dress for them; and the so-called "Chinese Vestments",
also from the eighteenth century, which were made in a missionary
site in southern China.
