Why Travel Bhutan With Truly Bhutan

National Handloom Development Project

The National Handloom Development Project (Khaling) trains rural weavers and supplies yarn on credit, then buys back the finished products, which are sold through the Government Handicraft Emporium in Thimphu. Weaving continues to be one of the most important sources of income for rural women in Bhutan, and NWAB has helped women to use traditional weaving practices to create products for the international market.

However, the National Handloom Development Project center in Khaling focuses on the eastern Bhutanese weaving traditions. In Bumthang in central Bhutan, they have a separate tradition of using more wool rather than silk and cotton and having different pattern styles.
