A must-visit if you’re in Phobjikha Valley, Wangmo Hand-Woven Carpet Factory was started by a local woman called Dorji Wangmo in 1992. It was set up to empower local young women by training them in carpet making. You can buy organic handmade beautifully weaved carpets with intricate designs and patterns at reasonable prices to take back home from this remarkable valley.

Factory is located just below the Yue- Loki Guest House. While visiting Phobjikha valley, tourists can spare sometime to visit this factory and see how women weave carpets with their bare hands.
