Bhutan – Textile’s

This miniature sheet commemorates textiles in Bhutan. Textile manufacture in Bhutan is more of an art than industry. Fabric and weaving are inseparable from Bhutan's rich cultural design. The colours, textures and weaves have evolved over many centuries. Weavers are mostly found in the far eastern part of the country. Traditional techniques are followed in both the processes of weaving and dying. 'Gho' for men and 'kira' for women are the national costume of the Bhutanese people. This nice MS was given to me by Jayant.
