Composition of the Kira, Kera, and Goh
The kira highlights Bhutanese weaving ability,
imagination, sense of proportion, intricate design,
and color balancing.
Each kira is designed and woven according to size and
decorative requirements and reflects family pride in
their weaving and design skill.
The kira is tightly wound around the body and belted
with a woven kera.
Two koma at the shoulder hold the kira in place,
while a joining japtha forms a decorative link between
the koma and hangs at the front.
This unique piece of jewelry is usually made of silver
with a gold finish and is embellished with turquoise
