Laurel cloak pieces

The design for the Lochac Laurel Cloak is being made up of about 60 individually embroidered pieces, all worked in applique and couched work, in gold twist and gold silk on green silk damask.

Laurel cloak medallions comprise three types:

The pieces are being worked by members of the Worshipful Company of Broiderers and the Order of the Laurel.

The closure is a piece of tablet woven braid, worked in fine silk and gold. It will be clasped with a medallion worked in enamels.
