“Bok is a colourful shawl worn for warmth and protection on the back. Traditionally it used to have a bright design on the outside and yak or goat skin on the inside to keep the wearer warm. This has now been changed by fashion to a simple ornament of brightly coloured material although in winter many women still wear goat skin to keep warm.”

bhutanese woman

“This kira is the first one I ever bought. A piece like this could take a year to make. My earrings and necklace were made by my mother — she likes recreating jewelry. The coral stones are traditional; you’ll find almost everyone owning a piece. Dzi — the cat eye, is rare and expensive. It is difficult to find original dzi pieces and the ones I’m wearing have been collected and passed on from generation to generation.”

What’s your favourite place in Bhutan?
