TIBETAN KNOTTED RUGS

Demonstrating Artists

Sok-Choekore Family

Saturday and Sunday only, Canopy H

Rug maker Karma Sok- Choekore learned to make traditional Tibetan pile carpets in a refugee camp in Nepal after his family fled from Tibet in 1959. He immigrated to Utah in 1992 and was later joined by his wife Sonam, also a weaver, and their four sons. They have taught their boys to make carpets to help them maintain ties to a homeland they haven’t personally experienced.
