This felt ornament is handmade by talented artisans in mountain villages of Kyrgyzstan. Your purchase empowers women in Kyrgyzstan, reduces global poverty and supports fair trade.
Following the proverb, ‘the best way to know a man is to walk a thousand miles in his shoes,’ we believe that to know who we are working with and to understand their lives, we ourselves need to live like and with them.
We live amongst our artist groups for an extended period of time. During that time we help them become self-sustainable by developing their designs, management techniques, quality control and computer skills.
