Item #: BHU2
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 silk on a cotton base cloth in the mid to early 1900's and measures 11" wide x 73" long (excluding fringe). This silk kera was probably reserved for special occasions and is in great condition for its age; it shows wear with many missing threads (common with old silk weavings) and is dirty from decades of use. Antique Bhutanese textiles are rare and highly collectible.
