Item #: BHU3
Antique kera (sash/belt) from Bhutan. A kera (alternate spelling: keyra) secures a woman's kira (dress) or man's gho (robe) at the waist. This sash was back strap woven of yak wool in the early-1900's and measures 18" wide x 86" long (excluding fringe). A 4" long signature or phrase has been added by marker or pen at some point using the Tibetan alphabet, possibly an owner's name (see images). This kera is in great condition for its age; it shows wear with occasional loose threads and a small dark stain (see images). Antique Bhutanese textiles are rare and highly collectible.
