Textile - Bhutan

Bhutanese woman is weaving

Textile art plays an important role in Bhutanese life. These weavings are produced using a technique called supplementary weft that involves inserting small pieces of colored thread among the warp threads by hand. This allows very intricate designs, but leaves the back side of the fabric with an unfinished look. Due to their labor intensive nature these hand loomed fabrics are very expensive, especially when done in silk or cotton, because of the number of weft threads per inch.
