Culture –Evolène costumes
A genuine symbol of the Hérens region, the wearing of this traditional costume has been preserved in this valley. It is worn for different reasons and occasions in the day-to-day mountain life. From the woollen schutzo worn by women on working days, to the blue robe and silky decorations for ceremonial occasions, the cultural wealth remains in expert hands, namely people who still know how to wear it. A treasure of Hérens’ heritage, it is not unusual to see it worn during the summer shows or, throughout the year, worn by la Raymonde, the tenant of the well-known restaurant “Le Mazot”.
