Khoma is a clustered settlement in the north of Bhutan in Lhuentse District. This village is located about two hours walk from the Dzong. It is a pleasant journey taking you over gentle slopes amongst pine trees.
This village in Lhuentse is notably famed for its weavers and special woven textiles (Kishu Thara) and fabrics, generally considered to be the best in the country. Women sit in a row of makeshift textile cottage, weaving intricate designs and patterns. Picking up a Kishu Thara here will be much cheaper than buying it from one of the handicraft shops in the capital. Kishu Thara is being worn by the woman in Bhutan. It is worn specially during the special occasion; celebration or events.
The Khoma Village
According to the legends, Guru Rinpoche meditated in the cave above the present day Khoma village for six months without the knowledge of anyone. Thus the name of the cave came to be known as Sang Wai Da Druk, the secret cave of six months.
The people of Khoma still believe that at least a girl gifted with signs of Khandom (women with qualities of celestial beings) will continually be born in Khoma village owing to the account of legendary tale. Today, Khoma Village is well known for producing a beautifully intricate patterned textile – Kishu Thara. Khoma Village is clustered village.
