The Gagyel Lhundrup Weaving Center is a private establishment in Bhutan’s capital of Thimphu. Located at the southern end of Thimphu, the Gagyel Lhundrup Weaving Centre produces some of the finest, traditional hand-woven textiles of the region. In fact, the Bhutanese royals source most of their fabric and ceremonial garments (the gho for the King and kushutara for the Queen) from this centre too. It is a place where tourists can purchase traditional fabrics and ready-made garments and also see expert weavers at work, creating intricate designs from vibrant silk threads. Housed in a humble, one-storied building, this weaving centre produces some finely embroidered scarves and kiras (traditional Bhutanese dress for women) that you can take home as souvenirs.
You will definitely be mesmerized by the sheer skills, concentration and dexterity of the weavers.
The Gagyel Lhundrup Weaving Center is open from Mon to Sat 9:00AM to 6.00PM.
