Kora Yarn Club

Kora སྐོར་བ། means circumambulation in Tibetan. Kora is both a type of pilgrimage and a type of meditative practice. Tibetans travel to many holy places and walk clockwise around the site.  

Kora is a huge part of Tibetan Buddhist traditions, and an integral part of any Tibetan Buddhist’s life. Buddhists believe that the steps taken on the kora around a sacred site give them merits on their journey towards enlightenment, can purify their negative karma and is a way to shield themselves from misfortune.

One of the holiest site in Tibet is the Jokhang Temple that sits in the center of old Lhasa in the Barkhor neighborhood and the kora around this temple if considered one of the holiest one.

The Barkhor – recreated in our drawing above- is a fascinating labyrinth of tiny streets and alleyways, old stone houses with trapezoidal shapes, markets, café, shops and galleries. Even today, with all the modernization and changes, the Barkhor is where you can feel the heart and soul of Tibet .

Our Kora Club is more than a yarn club

It’s a way for us to give you a taste of our love for Tibetan Culture and its people, a way for you to join our path, to walk together and help in our effort to support Tibetan communities.  

But we are also an Italian brand, so we had to bring something Italian into the Club, a special surprise for each club crafted with love in our home country.

What does the club include and how does it work?
