peasant

The society of the Peasants is called « fantasy » society, and comes from the Collège Notre-Dame de Bon Secours of Binche.
 
The Peasant wears a soberer costume than the Gille : a blue smock decorated with white sleeves, white pants, slim shoes decorated with wrinkled ribbons, white gloves and a different ramon than the Gille. The Peasant generally wears a hat decorated with 2 white ostrich feathers and long white ribbons. He also wears a “barrette” as well as a large square white textile under the chin. Finally the Peasants wear a mask that looks like the mask of the Gille but without the moustache and the beard.
