Traditional handwoven Kira on display

I went to watch the women make these. the real detailed ones they only can weave about 3in a day and the whole kira takes 6mo. Top quality kira sell for 50,000nu or more (a thousand dollars or more! …I think I would learn to weave out of necessity if I was a Bhutanese woman!)
