The fiddleback chasuble is similar to a traditional chasuble, but with a reduced front panel. This slight alteration allows the wearer greater mobility and comfort, enabling them to move their arms enough to cross them in the front. Fiddleback chasubles are also known for being stiffer than traditional chasubles and for having heavy embroidered designs on the front. The heavy embroidery and thick, lined materials that the chasubles are made of help them maintain their trademark shape, even while being worn. Matthew F. Sheehan carries a large selection of fiddleback chasubles to choose from in a variety of liturgical colors and designs.
Our fiddleback chasubles have a traditional shape with a rounded neckline. The body of the vestment is cut inward at the arms to allow for greater freedom of movement during services. Fiddleback chasubles also have founded corners and a front that is slightly higher than the back. Most styles are heavily embroidered with tapestries, contrasting bands and other similar details. Our fiddleback chasubles are decorated on the front and the back with heavy embroidery. Select styles may also be customized by adding a memorial label to the inside, printed with up to 2 lines of your own text. Memorial labels will incur an additional fee.
