Bhutanese textiles are intricately woven to showcase the inner beauty and strength of their weavers. The art of weaving, called “Thagzo“, is an essential part of Bhutan’s cultural heritage. The colorful pattern of the textiles is festooned with symbols of Tantric Buddhism. Kira is the national dress for women in Bhutan. It is one such living art form that displays the vibrant colors, sophisticated patterns, and intricate dyeing techniques of the country. The rectangular-shaped piece of woven fabric is worn at ankle length. It is pinned at both shoulders, generally with silver brooches, wrapped and folded around the body, and secured at the waist with a long belt (kera).
