Zugne is a village in Bumthang District in central Bhutan, located south of Jakar and east of Gyetsa in the Chume Valley. The village is renowned for its weavers with scarves tied to their heads in Bumthang style. They weave woolen yatras on pedal looms and make belts too. Zugne has two notable workshops along the main road, the Thogmela and the Khampa Gonpo, both of which make brightly colored textiles.
