"IN 1960, I COMPLETED MY EXAMINATION AS A TAILOR AND I HAVE BEEN MAKING FOLKLORE COSTUMES FOR ABOUT 40 YEARS."

 

THERE ARE 165 TYPES OF FOLKLORE COSTUMES IN THE ENTIRE VALAIS.

THE FOLKLORE COSTUME FROM THE VALAIS ORIGINATES FROM FRANCE. BACK IN THE DAYS, MEN FROM THE VALAIS OFTEN WORKED IN FRANCE AND ITALY AND THEREWITH BROUGHT BACK THOSE INFLUENCES.

THERE SHOULD NOT BE HAIR APPEARING UNDERNEATH THE HAT AND YOU SHOULD NOT PUT MAKE-UP ON.

"I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS FOR MANY YEARS NOW. IT STILL GIVES ME A LOT OF PLEASURE SIMPLY BECAUSE IT IS BEAUTIFUL WORK."
