Most Bhutanese women begin to learn the art of weaving as young girls from their mothers and grandmothers. At first, they learn simple designs and patterns, but as they gain confidence - through hours of practice, they incorporate more intricate patterns. Many of the designs and symbols represent their Buddhist religious beliefs.  It's no wonder that so much beauty comes from a country that values above all "Gross National Happiness"!
