The remote Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan is
situated near ancient trade routes for Tibet,
China, Southeast Asia, and India.
Bhutan has developed its own distinctive textile culture
but the design, production and uses of textiles in Bhutan
also reflect centuries of material, religious, decorative
and technological exchanges between these countries.
