About Us


Our homeland, Tibet, has been under Chinese occupation for over half a century...

This peaceful nation, blessed by vibrant culture and traditions, exists despite constant threat of elimination, as a living civilization, breathing deeply of the unique attributes which make Tibet separate from all others. The varied and exceptional arts of Tibet have been the primary means by which her people have kept alive their rich heritage since the Chinese invasion.

As Tibetans, we wish to share this wondrous artistry and profound Buddhist spirituality with the world. We founded Tibet Arts with the goal of preserving our people, our history and our culture. We started in 1992, opening our store in Cambridge, MA in 1996, as Tibet Arts. We are also growing as a flourishing dotcom business and have gained a broad reputation as a top supplier of Dharma items and Tibetan art, crafts and objects for people, practitioners, clergy, temples and practice centers, as well as other dealers.

With our focus on Tibetan Art and Artifacts, we carry a wide range of Buddhist practice items like very fine malas, thangkas, statues, devotional and offering wares, singing bowls and bells, gongs, tingshas, and rare Antique objects. We have one of the broadest selections of books about Buddhism, and Tibetan Buddhism in the Northeast. Some items are also suitable for Hindu and \"New Age\" practice, as well as application of Feng Shui or other blessing practices for living, business or work spaces.

We also stock a large collection of Hand Made Jewelry and Tibetan Handicrafts, traditional, devotional or just plain beautiful. Some of them are our very own designs and are offered nowhere else. In our retail store, we offer many items of cotton, silk and wool clothing, hats and accessories. Our customers like our very reasonable prices, our friendly, knowledgable service and our selection.

We offer authentic items, new and old, from our rich Tibetan culture and are thrilled to do so. All are carefully hand made by superior crafts people, exiled Tibetans refugees living in India, Nepal, Bhutan, Mongolia and elsewhere. Our agents and representatives are constantly looking for special, rare and finer items at terrific prices. Your purchase directly assists in the day to day lives of these refugees and aids in preserving and expanding the unique, rich Tibetan heritage and culture.

We have a duty to Tibet and to ourselves. By bringing her fine crafts to everyone, we help both. We increase awareness of the Tibetan people, culture, and cause, all threatened by Chinese occupation; we benefit the interested around the world; and we serve the Dharma, and the Sangha at large.
