Since March 2021, Constanza Camila Kramer Garfias has been working with artists Inka Schottdorf and Margarita Wenzel on the new design of altar fabrics for Naumburg Cathedral. Constanza is responsible for the development and production of the fabrics. The project includes three 2-4 meter long altar cloths made of red Jacquard-weave that decorates the three altars in the cathedral, e.g., for the festivities on Pentecost, Palm Sunday, or Good Friday.
Naumburg Cathedral (German: Naumburger Dom), is the former cathedral of the Bishopric of Naumburg-Zeitz. The church building, most of which dates back to the 13th century, is a renowned landmark of the German late Romanesque and was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2018. The west choir with the famous donor portrait statues of the twelve cathedral founders (Stifterfiguren) and the Lettner, works of the Naumburg Master, is one of the most significant early Gothic monuments.
