Fabrics of Bhutan


Bhutanese textiles are known for their abundance of colours and intricate patterns. This collection has taken fabrics traditionally used in the making of the men and women's National dress.

The colours of Bhutanese clothing are some of the most vibrant in the world and betray inspiration from Himalayan Buddhist art. Bright striking hues of red, green, yellow, and blue derive from the attire of the masked dancers that bless Buddhist festivals, with the quieter more earthy tones of browns and magenta coming from the surroundings of the monasteries themselves.
