The Gressoney's traditional costume

In ancient times Gressoney’s women were used to wearing their traditional costume every day, even when they were working. Of course, it was not so elegant and so richly decorated as today’s costume. On the contrary, it was shorter and plain.
In the course of times Gressoney’s inhabitants began to wear other clothes, so that the beautiful costume with its valuable bonnet, made of filigree and precious stones, became the best clothe, which was only used for fests and special occasions.
Besides the scarlet costume with golden ornaments, there is a so-called violet “mourning costume”
with silver decorations.
