What is a Jussishirt?
The jussishirt is seen as a symbol of the Finnish speaking Ostrobothnia though its roots belong to knitting history of the Swedish speaking coast. There are several diverse theories about how the jussishirt was born. The main theory is that it was developed from traditional Ostrobothnian sweater in 1925 for a movie called “Pohjalaisia”, which can be translated as “Ostrobothnians”.
Nowadays, the jussishirt symbolizes the stamina, diligence, honesty, integrity and even the insanity and bravado of Southern Ostrobothnia people.
