Lonely Planet review
This private centre at the south end of Thimphu produces handwoven textiles and has a selection of cloth and ready-made garments for sale. This is one of the few places where you can watch weavers at work. A finely embroidered kira can take a year to make and cost over US$1000; cheaper ones start at US$50.
