Description: Bhutan’s largest exports are hydroelectricity and tourism, but coming in a distant third is handicrafts still produced on hand looms as shown here. While Bhutan does not export large quantities to the US or Western Europe (the country only has a population of about 880,000, thus their workforce is not that large compared to neighbors India and China) I do very much enjoy shopping for rugs or paintings while visiting.
