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.
A dress made of this kira would look amazing with a hand-woven Bhutanese belt.
