Places

In Kham, most folk art pieces are made not by one artist, but by a group of people in a village, often a family.   The style of item varies by place and by maker.

Our worksites are all within the Kham cultural region and the political entity called the Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, which generally coincide (see map).   Currently, we work with artists and craftpeople from rural areas near the following towns (listed by their Tibetan names, with Chinese names given in parentheses):

Tibetan Nomadic Herding Areas

Tibetan Mixed Herding & Farming Areas

Edge Tibetan Mixed Herding & Farming Areas

  • Gyarong (Jintang & Danba)
  • Jiga (South Daocheng County)
