Traditional Tibetan tailoring

The traditional Tibetan appliqué and tailoring studio houses an experienced craftsman who makes ritual costumes, thangka brocades and many other decorative and ritual items for monasteries and individuals.

The textile artists are trained in making appliqué and embroidered thangkas. These thangkas are constructed from many pieces of hand-cut and embroidered pieces of silk and brocade, and take many months to complete. These artists are also applying their skills to revive the old tradition of purely embroidered thangkas, using silk thread and handmade cloth.

To order items from the tailoring studio, please contact the art school administrator Miss Lobsang Dolma by email (see home page).
