Deki Natural Dye and Handicraft
Deki Natural Dye and Handicraft is a sustainable business run by Deki. Deki learned the art of weaving and dyeing with her late mother and aunt. After receiving formal training, she went on to create her first shop, an eco-friendly business in the heart of Thimphu.
Her textiles are all made from sustainable fibers that are grown locally and organically. All the colors are achieved through vegetal dyes.
Deki, also supports women from the community by offering training to those interested in learning so they can start their own business as well.
