Bhutanese textiles and fabric designs
The art of weaving is widely used in central and eastern part of Bhutan. Bhutanese textiles are appreciated for being colourful and having a variety of intricate patterns. The Royal textile academy was inaugurated by her majesty the Queen Mother Sangay Choden Wangchuck on the 5th June 2013.
The Textile weaves of Bhutan show the visitors intricate patterns of the national attire of Bhutan- Kira for women and Gho for men and another form of western, Indian dresses made of fibres such as wool, raw silk, raw cotton, yak hair (Yathra product), Bura and others. The most expensive fibre is raw silk.
There are two types of weaving:
1: Kar chang (Plain Woven)
It is a simple form of plain weaving that consumes less time and comfortable to wear as well.
Some of the examples are:
a: Pangtse (White and black colour mixed)
b: Sethra (yellow and orange colour mixed)
c: Mathra (Red and black mixed colour )
d: Pesar and these are cheap and it takes up to a week to complete the weaving.
2: Kushu Thara (Colourful )
It is valued the most beautiful dress for women in the country and indeed is so expensive as compared to other dresses. (Over 60,000 depending on the designs). It takes up to a year to complete the weaving.
You would be able to see the gho (simple and the design pattern one), Kira(Kushu Thara )Yathra coat, Rachu and Kera made out of Bura fabric.
Three hundred participants came from different districts of Bhutan came to showcase Bhutan’s 13 forms of arts and crafts, mask and folk dances, living spiritual heritage, Bhutanese films, cuisine, fashion, trade, contemporary art, tourism, Bhutanese textiles and emerging fashion, Bhutanese highland culture, traditional medicine, photo exhibition and several other interesting activities at Indira Gandhi National Center for the Arts (IGNCA(Delhi)) to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of friendship between Bhutan and India from the 23rd till the 30th September 2018.
