07 Drayang Red
Drayang literally means "soft voice" in Dzongkha. It is also known as a place of performance to showcase talents.
Likewise, Drayang Red Scarf has become our show case piece for our artisan weavers, as they explore new designs for the scarf. Traditionally, scarfs made in Bhutan are all symmterical, Drayang Red is their first creation of a design with asymmetrical lines.
Each scarf takes at least a whole day to hand weave, starting from yarn spinning to tassel rolling. By purchasing one, you are also helping to empower Bhutanese artisan women to use their creative talents to become financially independent.
Specification: 170cm x 30cm, 100% handmade in Bhutan, from quality Indian yarn. Wash in warm water by hand - colour will not run. Each scarf will come in an organza bag that can be used to keep your scarf when not in use or as a nice gift bag.
