Jampa Socks

Meaning kindness and benevolence, ”Jampa” is a popular girl’s name in Bhutan. The pattern design was inspired by the bold colors and intricate motifs woven into traditional Bhutanese textiles. The varying widths of the stripes represent the warp threads while the textures in each stripe emulate how weft threads are used to create embedded motifs.

The stitchwork in the first half of the sock is mirrored in the second half to give the fabric a visual balance. Featuring a wool-free wonder yarn—HiKoo® CoBaSi DK combines cotton, silk, bamboo, and nylon for a cool, lightweight sock suitable for all seasons.

Meshu Meshu Market Bag

When offered food in Bhutan, it is considered courteous to refuse at least twice by saying “meshu meshu” and to close your mouth. This is to express gratitude and an unwillingness to inconvenience others. If the food continues to be offered, it is then polite to accept and enjoy the offering.

This meshy tote is ready to accompany you to the local farmer’s market, grocery store, or simply as a cheerful project bag! For a sturdy, reliable fabric, we chose four complimentary colors of HiKoo® CoBaSi DK. This cotton, silk, and bamboo blend feature just a touch of nylon for strength, so you can stock up on all the food and flowers you can carry.

Step-by-step instructions for each technique are included.

Tashi Shawl

Inspired by the beautifully intricate Bhutanese national attire, particularly the kira worn by Bhutanese women—a rectangular woven fabric worn as an ankle-length dress, with colorful, repeating motifs. The name “Tashi” can be given to either a boy or a girl and means “good fortune.”

Whether you wear it as a scarf, a shoulder wrap, or a shawl, this striking piece is sure to make a statement. Worked flat in mosaic knitting means you only use one color at a time! We chose (6) complimentary colors of HiKoo® CoBaSi DK, a cotton, silk, and bamboo blend perfect for year-round wear.
