Traditional Dress - Bhutan

Women in Bhutan have been weaving and wearing their traditional clothing for centuries. Bhutanese dress is completely hand woven, featuring vibrant colors and intricate motif, on indigenous back strap looms. The horizontal frame loom and card loom were introduced by Tibet and are utilized for weaving as well. Dress is regional with design work, colors and/or accessories (i.e. hat) specific to certain Bhutan districts. Bhutanese continue to wear traditional clothing today as expected in government positions and buildings, religious buildings, offices, schools and for special occasions. The official dress and etiquette code of the Kingdom of Bhutan, Driglam Namzha, was established in the 17th century dictating how to dress and behave in public and for formal occasions. In 1989 the recommended traditional dress code was made mandatory for cultural preservation, and is strictly enforced today.

The Bhutanese woman's dress consists of: a kira secured with a kera and koma, wonju, toego, rachu plus jewelry. The Bhutanese man's dress consists of a gho. Read additional information on our Bhutanese Textile Information page.
