Tshoglham, traditional boots, are worn by men on formal and festive occasions. Patterns are embroidered with silk thread on cloth and leather and padded with aromatic pine needles for warmth and comfort. The ceremonial shoes were about to disappear when a master of tshoglham-making trained a few apprentices. Today, civil servants are required to wear them during official events and tourists love them. Jangchubla tshoglham production house manufactures traditional boots that have been infused with modern ideas to preserve our pristine culture and also to keep up with modern trends. It also seeks to attract international interest.
The project is supported through Loden-DHI Fund.
