Two hundred and eighty-nine individual designs illustrated in one hundred plates are drawn from woven and decorated items made in the Royal Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan during the last two centuries. The designs are displayed in clear diagrammatic form. The designs of Bhutan, whilst unique in nature, have been nurtured over many years and also contain elements of influence from China, Tibet and Nepal. This Mahayana Buddhist kingdom portrays its thoughts, aspirations, imagination and beliefs in the weaving art for everyday use in clothing, decorative panels, carpets and religious coverings and other items. Religious symbols, animal and plant life, natural phenomena, everyday objects, tradition, mythical and geometric forms and a range of border elements are included which can be transferred to colorful and unusual uses.
