Bhutanese textiles represent a rich and complex repository of a unique art form. They are recognised for their abundance of colour, sophistication and variation of patterns, and the intricate dyeing and weaving techniques. The weavers, who are mostly women, must not be seen merely as creator of wealth but also as the innovators and owners of artistic skills developed and nurtured over centuries of time.
Breathe Bhutan can organize a weaving class for you. The class will be offered by local women whose livelihoods depend solely on weaving traditional Bhutanese textiles.
