Fabric & Colors ~ Robe Fabrics
 

Murphy Robes searched the world to bring you the finest fabrics. Each selection brings special qualities to your choir robe, pulpit robe, or other apparel. When Murphy Robes couldn't find what they wanted, they had fabrics designed and woven to their specifications so they could present you with the best.

If you are searching for new choral attire, there are many ways to create a look that is just right for your choir. While style plays an important part, the colors and textures in the fabrics you choose make a valuable contribution as well. Choose colors that blend or contrast, fabrics with the same or different textures and patterns, and trims that support or separate the existing combinations. Put it all together with the help of your Murphy dealer, who can provide you with a free Murphy Robes Fabric Selector containing the majority of our fabrics and colors, as well as robe samples and helpful advice.
