The "Picnic Bag" - an old tradition from the Lötschental
The "Picnic Bag" is usually filled with local products (cheese, meat and rye bread from the Lötschental) and is taken to the Civic Assembly. After the official part of the assembly, food out of the bag is shared. In the past this bag has also been used to transport the food for the work in the fields.
Here you can buy the original Lötschentaler Spiissack (without content).
