About the Artisans:
After the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Kyrgyzstan became an independent country - and was reeling from economic hardship. Many women were unemployed, and making ends meet was a daily challenge. Our fair trade partners work with women who started small craft businesses to help them further expand their markets, grow, and support their communities. We work with inspiring women who are determined to save their traditional art of felting - passed down from mother to daughter accross the generations.
