CHIMMI House of Design is an artistic collaboration of weavers, tailors, and artisans, guided by the elegant vision of owner and designer, Chimmi Choden.
Like many Bhutanese girls, Chimmi grew up around weavers, though it was not until she was older that she understood the unique value of this craft. Her appreciation and understanding of the work that goes into producing these textiles has developed over many years, and continues to motivate her today.
CHD's collections feature wearable couture that is deeply rooted in, and inspired by, Bhutan's rich weaving history. Our designs fuse traditional textiles with timeless silhouettes; straight, clean lines and bold colors are softened by the feel and movement of luxurious, hand woven fabrics.
Founded in 2014, our brand aims to promote and preserve Bhutan’s culture and traditions through high fashion; uplifting local artisans and reviving the local textile industry. CHD is a socially conscious brand that encourages creativity and independence through our integrated and sustainable business model; providing reliable, salaried employment to our dedicated team of weavers and tailors.
In fashion, Chimmi has found a way to give back to her country. "I am passionate about what I do and honored to carry on a tradition that has been passed down from mother to daughter for generations. When you're really passionate about what you're doing, I believe your work will reflect that." Chimmi and her team work closely to produce exclusive, one-of-a-kind works of wearable art.
Through committed teamwork and inspired collaborations, CHIMMI House of Design is uplifting, and ultimately redefining Bhutanese textiles in modern times.
