Gaspard Takes Second Place in International Design Competition!

Competing with 18 prominent vestment designers, Gaspard, Inc. of Wisconsin received second place in an international design contest launched in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Cathedral of Monaco. The three finalist were chosen by a jury presided over by Princess Caroline of Hanover. The winning chasubles remain at the Cathédrale de Monaco.

For Gaspard, this award acknowledges a point of distinction within the religious garment industry. While many companies have moved their manufacturing overseas, Gaspard continues to hand craft their vestments, paraments, and other religious garments. The award-winning chasuble is a perfect example of the attention to detail that sets Gaspard apart – the embroidery on the chasuble, collar and understole that has over 1 million stitches alone! The design and production for the award-winning chasuble was a team effort that took nearly four months.

Taking into account the season in which the chasuble would be presented, the designers chose scarlet material as a reminder of the blood Christ shed. The flowers that encircle the chasuble and fill the design are dogwood flowers, symbolic of Christ’s crown of thorns.

“I couldn’t be more proud of our team, and the effort that went into to creating this chasuble,” said company president Jason Gaspard. “We took a chance by investing as much time as we did, but I felt confident that our work would stand up among the well-known quality of the European makers. Even so, I was still surprised to learn that we had been awarded second place. We’re thrilled.”

Founded in 1954 by Jason’s father, Robert Gaspard, the company is now run by Jason and his wife JoAnn. As one of the nation’s leading vestment manufacturers, Gaspard’s handcrafted items are sold worldwide through their catalog and website (gaspardinc.com). The company has already seen interest from potential new European customers in response to the award.
