For a couple of years ago Jozan Magazine interviewed Elvis Ablimit Ghopor, a local Uyghur carpet dealer, about carpet trade in Kashgar, Xinjiang.
As a very knowledgeable and experienced person, Elvis helps to organize trips and tours in and around Kashgar. He is also a proud connoisseur of the Muqam; Uyghur traditional music. One of his itineraries include a guided tour to the famous Kashgar Sunday Market, where carpets are sold.
So, if you are heading to Kashgar, consider contacting him to get more benefit from his knowlegde of Uyghur traditions, carpets, art and culture.
