Tailor-made Journeys to the World of Crafts in Bhutan
Craft Connected is happy to serve craft lovers by helping to arrange tailor-made trips to explore rich craft and art traditions in Bhutan.
Craft Connected partners with Bhutan Jewel Travel that will arrange a trip according to your interests and desires and will be your guide during your journey.
Craft Connected’s mission is to keep alive centuries’ old heritage craft and art.
Our hope is that through Bhutan Jewel Travel’s service we open peoples’ eyes and hearts for deeper appreciation for traditional craft and art culture not just in Bhutan but around the world. Promoting local artisans is close to our heart, and what would be a better way to do that than to connect craft lovers with the artisans themselves and offer them hands-on experience of the old techniques that are still practiced.
Embark on a journey to the secrets of heritage crafts and arts in Bhutan and enjoy a unique opportunity to meet and interact with local artisans, learn by watching their intricate work and participate in the process by doing your own art work.
We arrange textile tours to weaving villages in Central and Eastern Bhutan and organize workshops on old craft techniques such as natural dyeing, weaving, embroidery, wood carving and pottery. We recommend, however, starting your journey by immersing yourself in the richness and colorfulness of Bhutanese crafts and arts by visiting Craft Market, Royal Textile Academy and Museum in Thimpu.
Each tour is customized based on traveler or travel group’s special interests, tastes and requirements. If you are travelling in a group, in which people have different interests we do our best to accommodate them. It is always possible to arrange something for craft and art seekers and something else for nature adventurers and cultural interests, for example.
