The textile tradition is one of the best in the world. Most women are seasoned weavers of highly diverse designs and convoluted patterns. Each region of Bhutan has its own textile style. People of Kurtoe in eastern Bhutan are famous for design of superb dresses called kushutara, woven with a brocading technique while Radhi in Trashigang is famous for raw silk weavers locally known as burey outfits. The unique and intricate patterns of the textiles differ according to type of looms, on which they are woven as well as fibre and dyes. Dyes used for the textiles are extracted indigenously from vegetables and mineral pigments.

An artisan community of Trashiyangtse in eastern Bhutan makes wooden bowls, plates, and containers using pedal lathes on the extracted burr of prized wood. The root of the wormwood locally called khempa, which is in the form of a tuber, is considered to be the best for making wooden bowls. Bowls and receptacles are usually lacquered black or red with a substance that is extracted from the lacquer tree Asiatic Sumac.

Bhutanese artisans are also renowned for bamboo and rattan wares as our forests are endowed with abundant stocks of bamboos and canes of various species.  The skills of weaving canes and bamboo products are predominant with the people of Kangpara in eastern Bhutan and the Bjokaps in Central Bhutan. The products are these days sold to tourists in handicraft shops and craft bazaar in Thimphu giving the practicing artisans an extra income as well as ensuring the sustainability of our existing traditional craft culture amid the onslaught of inevitable globalization.
