Namgyal L Taklha (Author)

Costumes and Jewellery of Tibet” by Namgyal L. Taklha is a comprehensive documentation of traditional Tibetan costumes and jewellery.

The 183-page book presents rare photos of early records of Tibetan costumes, Tibetan textiles, costumes of the people of three provinces of Tibet, costumes of Tibetan government officials, Oracles, Opera and Cham and of jewels, hairstyles and ornaments.

Mrs Taklha recounted how she visited the vast study and research articles on costumes and materials by scholars in Tibet and collected as much reliable information as possible about Tibetan costumes from before 1959.

President Dr Lobsang Sangay offered the book as an essential contribution to preservation efforts and representation of the rich and distinct identity, culture, writing, costumes, the tradition of Tibet.

While inside Tibet, systematic efforts are being made to sinicise the Tibetan culture, people, their religious and social life, this book will serve a great purpose in presenting the unique identity of the people of Tibet which is so well preserved in the book,” he said.

It has been 15 years in the making of the book”. The author hoped that the book will serve as a treasure house of information for young Tibetans to enable them to learn about their rich cultural traditions that are now disappearing.
