Journey Of The Fabric

9 Nights / 10 Days

Journey Of The Fabric

per person

Holiday in Bhutan compels us to toss away our old notions and discover a civilization whose majesty equals the great societies of all tribes of Asia. To soak it up, we have crafted this journey to take you deep into Bhutan’s colourful style of dressing.

Bhutan’s traditional weaving has been preserved for centuries and you can witness this first hand. The hand woven textiles of Bhutan are being admired by the world, due to its craftsmanship, colour, durability and essence. The vibrant colors and textures exhibit a unique and splendid textile art of Bhutan that has been passed down from one generation to another. It’s an art that’s worth saving and seeing.
