As part of their participation in the arts festival, Zorig Chusum will showcase their crafts at Le Meridian from the 14th – 23rd of February, 2015. There will also be live demonstrations. Come and witness the talents of some of the finest craftspeople in the country and maybe take home a souvenir that is unique to Bhutan.
