Craft Revival Trust
Called Dras-drub-ma, the appliqué scroll thangkas serves a similar purpose to the painted Thanka but is crafted by stitching together pieces of shaped cloth onto a base fabric. To this is added embroidery to create the image required. in some cases the thangka may even be completely embroidered. These thankhas are created by only male Buddhists after training in the monasteries in the iconometry and iconography of the art including the colour scheme.
