The Yathra Collection
Textiles form a rich complex art deeply embedded in Bhutanese culture and history. Textile arts in Bhutan are centuries old, vibrant, ongoing and ever changing.
Of the many basic fibers, yathra, or yak wool, is considered to be the most prestigious. Yathra is considered a precious commodity, form of payment and expressions of religious demotion. Textiles like Yathra play an important role in the practice of Buddhist ritual, providing images of deities and makers and adornments for sacred places.
On Druksell, we have a number of designers who are transforming the use of Yathra wool into contemporary fashion.
