Founded in 2014 by self-taught designer, Tshering (Chimmi) Choden, CHIMMI House of Design has grown from a home-based business into Bhutan’s first internationally recognized fashion house. CHD is a socially conscious brand that supports sustainable growth within the local textile industry by providing salaried employment opportunities to local weavers, tailors and artisans.
The brand’s success not only ensures the preservation of Bhutan’s unique craft, but guarantees that the art will continue to evolve; building upon traditional techniques to create contemporary designs. Like generations of women before them, Chimmi Choden and her weavers are innovating new patterns, incorporating different fibers and experimenting with color combinations. The effect is a timeless fusion of past and future; a style that very much reflects the social evolution happening in Bhutan today.
Through their committed teamwork and inspired collaborations, CHIMMI House of Design is uplifting—and ultimately redefining Bhutanese textiles in modern times.
