Tshering | Street Style Bhutan

bhutanese woman

“This kira is the first one I ever bought. A piece like this could take a year to make. My earrings and necklace were made by my mother — she likes recreating jewelry. The coral stones are traditional; you’ll find almost everyone owning a piece. Dzi — the cat eye, is rare and expensive. It is difficult to find original dzi pieces and the ones I’m wearing have been collected and passed on from generation to generation.”

What’s your favourite place in Bhutan?
Bumthang.

What are you listening to right now?
Misty Blue by Dorothy Moore.

Anything on repeat?
My oldies playlist. So there is The Chi-Lites, Al Green, The Manhattans, Otis Redding.

Thimphu, Bhutan. March 2014.
