School of Arts and Crafts in Thimphu
After visiting a workshop and textile crafts store in the capital of Bhutan, where we saw women's clothing consisting of a skirt or sarong called a kira and a small jacket ( a Toedgo) and then tried the menswear, called the Gho which consists of a long gown with sleeves, in which the length of the bottom is adjusted by the belt, which also then serves to create a bag, according to Tashi, our guide: "The biggest pocket in the world". After that we went to the National Institute of Arts and Crafts, which in dzonkha, the main language spoken in Bhutan, is called Chusum Zorig - translated as the 13 crafts. We were able to watch students at work, weaving, working with clay on Buddhist-themed sculptures, thangkas painted or wooden masks. Finally we visited a handicraft factory of paper items.
