“This kira makes me think of a graceful evening gown: a majestic skirt combined with a silk or satin top. Or perhaps an original two-piece set, a jacket or extra luxurious home accessories. This fabric offers countless exciting possibilities and I believe that whatever you decide to make from it will reflect the mystic beauty of the Himalayas where it’s from.” Your Lilia.
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 enjoy 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: 111 cm x 248 cm.
A dress made of this kira would look amazing with a hand-woven Bhutanese belt.
