Stopped here at the end of the day. There are some women weaving using traditional methods on the first floor, and there is a store with various cloth goods on the second floor. Not a big building.

We were keen on seeing kushuthara and other weaving techniques after visiting the Textile Museum. Eastern Bhutan is renowned for weaving but we were not going there so this was an alternative, popular with guides and tourists. There are sections of three to four women...More
