About the Artisan
Choki is a non profit organization founded with the mission of protecting the culture and traditions of some of the most sacred places left in the world that are under the threat of “globalization.” Through Choki’s support causes, beneficiaries will receive opportunities for human sustainability, security, and empowerment.
The artworks are then sold with all proceeds returned to the artists' communities for sustainable development projects. By revealing to the developed world the beauty of secluded cultures that exist, we believe we can help sustain tradition.
Choki believes art serves as communication for the improvement of society, social relationships, consciousness, and a greater understanding of the human experience.
All our art pieces are 100% handmade, unique from each other and carry with them the ancient techniques that have been passed down through generations by the bhutanese artisans.
"The creative powers of people are infinite, and must be supported."
