Veils for Sale

28 11 2008

Also called a mantilla I never saw a woman wear one until I came to Japan.  In Tokyo only some women wear them but as you can see in the last post about the 18 martyrs beatification the closer to Nagasaki you get the more veils become common.   Then today while looking at an online Catholic store to see what they had for Christmas I looked at some of the other categories and came across the page selling mantillas.  So if you are curious how much such a thing costs and the variety they sell then take a look.

Most of them are made in Japan and several of the more expensive & fancy ones are made in France.  If you would like to buy one in person, not online, many churches have a small religious store located on or near the property that sells them.
