Bhutan Textile Kira Kushutara
background : Bhutanese hand-spun cotton yarn
patterns : hand-spun wild silk yarn
Fashion and dress etiquette are important aspects
of Bhutanese dress and while the form of the kira
(wrapped dress) remains basically the same,
the textile expresses the social identity of the wearer
with variations in weave, colours, fibres and decoration
used to reflect their social and economic status, age
and regional identity.
