About us


My name is Clare Short and I am a 41 year old Mother of 3 +1. I've been married for 21 years. I am a fully professed secular Carmelite.

I began by making a set of vestments for a newly ordained priest friend in 2014. Today Di Clara offers a whole range of Catholic gifts and vestments. Di Clara's main aim is to help restore beauty and reverence to the Liturgy through beautiful vestments, and to educate people about the rosary, brown scapular, veiling and the domestic church. 

My greatest achievement to date has been making vestments for Pope Emeritus Benedict's 90th Birthday, and being invited to present them personally to him in Rome!
