Vintage Bhutan Textiles


Here are some Bhutanese woven textiles from "The Bhutan and Asia Textile Art Museum" site. I have to admit, I had no idea where Bhutan was, so I looked it up. It is at the eastern edge of the Himalayas between India and China. It is said to be the happiest country in Asia. Maybe that is why they use such bright cheery colors in their weavings.
