Item #: BHU8
Antique kira (dress) from Bhutan. The kira is worn as a ankle length dress by Bhutanese women and secured with a sash (kera) at the waist and koma at the shoulder. This kira was back strap woven in three panels of all silk in the late 1800's to early 1900's and measures 56" x 88" (excluding fringe). This silk kira was probably reserved for special occasions and is in great condition for its age; it shows extensive wear along the edges with many loose and missing threads throughout (common with old silk weavings) and is dirty from decades of use. Antique Bhutanese textiles are rare and highly collectible.
