SAME OFFICE, SAME ATTIRE

Osuuskunta Pyhävaate was established as a response to the need for all pastors to have common vestments to unite them within their daily work.


A cassock is a garment that signifies love.


The vestments of a pastor are not just any garments. They are worn to encounter people in all types of life situations. When embarking on a task, pastors dress in a manner that identifies their role. As part of their work, pastors bear the joys and sorrows of others – and the role of pastor supports those working in that role.

What does a garment tell about its wearer and the tasks that he or she carries out? The Evangelical-Lutheran Church of Finland does not have male or female pastors; it only has pastors. And everyone in the same position should have the same vestments.

The Osuuskunta Pyhävaate cassocks are sewn by Mari Benissan. Each cassock is sewn in accordance with the measurements provided by the customer. The material is 100% merino wool. The Osuuskunta Pyhävaate cassock is intended to serve as both the formal dark suit and informal daily vestment of pastors.
