A bright-green kira decorated with lime patterns. A beautiful fabric in the colours of nature adorned according to the best tradition of old Bhutanese craft.This kira comes from Punakha, a place known as “the Temple of Fertility” where countless couples who have trouble conceiving a child get a blessing after which their dream comes true. The temple is devoted to “the holy fool” Drukpa Kuenley. Images of his penis adorn most houses in Punakha and elsewhere. (The image brings abundance and protection. You can read more about Bhutanese customs here). This unconventional and unique kira reflects the playful nature of the Punakha valley’s inhabitants and their imaginative stories and the abundant greenery (it is one of the warmest valleys in Bhutan).
A treasure from the Himalayas… This kira is special and can be used in many ways: to make a dress, a skirt or unique home accessories. Or you can pick one of our designs in the Tailor-made dresses section and have us make you an amazing dress from this kira.
Green makes you think of the forest… the smell of flowers, lovely fresh air and absolute freedom! This unique fabric brings you the breeze of the forests of Bhutan and reflects the infinite green line of the majestic mountains. Graceful but wild - an amazing piece for a daring urban Amazon’s wardrobe.
A kira is a firm, hand-woven fabric, which is essential for the Bhutanese women’s folk costume. It is lavishly decorated with beautiful designs - all the designs are woven, not embroidered. The different designs hint at the fabric’s origin, as each area of Bhutan uses their own patterns and colours when making a kira.
For women who like a truly unique style!
This kira is woven from silk and cotton. It is so firm it can last for many years. It is firm and warm. There is no need to iron it often. Wash in low temperatures using the “delicate” programme or best have it dry cleaned.
Size: 114 x 224 cm
A dress made of this kira would look amazing with a hand-woven Bhutanese belt.
