***
The kira is the principal form of dress worn
by women in Bhutan. It is formed from three
lengths of cloth stitched together to create
a rectangular panel which is worn wrapped
around the body, folded into a wide pleat
in front and fastened at the shoulders
with brooches (koma).
Tightly belted with a kera or waist cloth the cloth
is bloused about the waist to form a pouch
where personal items can be carried.
