Duchess Kate: Kira-style skirt made from traditional Bhutanese fabric.

This full-length purple and turquoise patterned wrap skirt was especially made by tailors in London using fabric sourced from local weaver Kelzang Wangmo who is based in Thimphu and often weaves for the royal family in Bhutan. These fabrics are made by hand with no use of machinery, with Kelzang and her team relying on traditional techniques from making the texture to dyeing the material.
