    General Information

    Monastic work clothes

    In the Königsmünster Abbey in Meschede, the monks wear a uniform work coat when they work. Very interesting even for non-monks, we thought. Since the monastery tailor shop is too small, we had to have the smock made outside the monastery, and this is now done in a small factory in Datteln, the neighboring town of our Waltrop headquarters. The smock is made in a very simple and robust way, it is put on like a sweater and reaches, depending on the body size, up to the hips. It has no buttons that could protrude or tear off, or that could get caught in the work.

    The cotton fabric in a tight twill weave is woven in warp-twist quality especially for this garment in Germany. It protects the upper body from wind, injuries and dirt, but does not constrict and keeps its shape at all times. The sleeves are wide cut and thus airy, if necessary they can be shortened or even left out plenty. Two large-volume patch pockets with a 17 cm opening conveniently hold work tools or other items. Due to the high-closed pocket shape, these are largely safe from falling out. In the house and garden, in the workshop and in the open field, this smock provides faithful service for a long time and cuts a fine figure in its quiet, simple form.
