Explore the Gagyel Lhundrup Weaving Centre

Located at the southern end of Thimphu, the Gagyel Lhundrup Weaving Centre produces some of the finest, traditional hand-woven textiles of the region. In fact, the Bhutanese royals source most of their fabric and ceremonial garments (the gho and kushturara for the king and queen respectively) from this centre too. It is a place where tourists can not only buy traditional fabrics and readymade garments but also see expert weavers at work, creating intricate designs from vibrant silk threads. Housed in a humble, one-storied building, this weaving centre produces some finely embroidered scarves and kiras (traditional Bhutanese dress for women) that you can take home as souvenirs.
