An exhibition titled, “Trima: Discontinuous Weft Pattern” was officially inaugurated by Her Majesty Gyalyum Sangay Choden Wangchuck at the RTA on 31 August 2017. It is being organized by the Textile Museum and the Royal Textile Academy.
The exhibition highlights sophisticated designs and motifs created by highly skilled modern weavers using two distinct categories of Trima patterning. The exhibition is designed under four different themes: Kushung, Kushuthara, Ngosham and Pesar.
The main objective of the exhibition is to preserve and promote the unique and beautiful art of weaving in general and to highlight and celebrate the technique of weaving discontinuous weft patterns in particular. The exhibition also includes some award-winning pieces from the annual National Design Competitions organized by the Textile Museum and the RTA.
The Chief Justice, Cabinet Ministers, Opposition Leader, Secretaries and other dignitaries were present during inauguration of the exhibition.
The exhibition will be open for the public for next nine months at the Royal Textile Academy.
