The 'tavillon' or wooden shingle – ancestral craft and living tradition

Wherever you go in Switzerland, you're sure to see a farm or chalet, townhouse, bell tower or monument adorned in thousands of wooden shingles known in French as “tavillons” or “bardeaux”. These traditional shingles seen on roofs and façades in every Swiss canton are proof of the survival of an ancient craft that can only be learned under the tutelage of a master craftsman.

The smooth covering of wooden scales that clothes the curves of many a roof are part of Switzerland's built heritage. A technique passed on orally from generation to generation

Welcome, Tervetuloa

Dear visitor,

Welcome and thank you for visiting our page!

Switzerland and Finland have a lot in common and to share. Both are longstanding solid democracies and are blessed with competitive and performing national economies. According to a recent international study Finns are culturally the most similar to the Swiss. Did you know that Swiss companies employ 13’500 persons in Finland (rank 4 after Sweden, Germany and the USA) and that almost 4’000 Finns live in Switzerland?
