The products

Hand-made, support the livelihood of women and their families, reflect the wholeness approach, encourage creative work, beautiful, wearable, original, unique.

The Great Silk Road connecting Central Asia and Europe. Caravans floating in the plains transporting ideas, objects, knowledge, people. Thousands of miles behind, thousands ahead. What is one object, what is product, what is the value of one's life? We are a bridge between East and West and our aspiration is to connect worlds through art, crafts and trade. It is to inspire people to create, to preserve knowledge.

A product for us not simply an object. It is a story that must be listened to. It speaks to us if we allow ourselves to be touched by it. Some stories inspire us, some leave empty and hungry for meaning.

All our scarves are hand-made, each piece is unique like a painting or rather sculpture, using various ancestral techniques such as fusion of wool fibers, wool felt and silk textile.

Felt is non-woven textile produced by matting and pressing wool fibers together. It is considered as one of the oldest textiles. In Kyrgyzstan it is still used to make yurts, carpets and clothing.
The traditional practice of felt-making has been revived thanks to opening up of the country after the collapse of the Soviet Union to the outside world and tourism development.
It didn't take long till young fashion designers and artists of the country developed new ways of making and using felt, especially refined and adapted to modern clothing.
Kyrgyzstan is a highly mountainous country with abundance of sheep wool creating a solid base for ecologically sustainable use of the material in textiles, art, and other industry.
In textile arts and crafts each piece is a result of a fusion of finely crafted felt from sheep wool fibers and natural textiles such as silk, cotton.

  • Care & Cleaning

    Our hand-made products must be washed at maximum 30C°, no tumble dry. You can mashine-wash or better hand-wash. Once washed, give your product it's original shape by spreading it horizontally on a towel and dry flat. It can be then ironed at wool and/or silk temperature and will look again as new! If you don't iron it, it will have a more casual look, this concerns especially felt scarves with silk. Do not dry clean as this will alter its natural aspect. You want to care for your product and make best use of it. Remember, it is hand-made and unique.
  • Repair

    Important aspect of hand-made products is that it might have "imperfections" due to hand-made coloring, sewing, felting, etc. These are not defaults but rather its unique characteristic. If you do need to repair, please write us to consult you on this.
  • What is felt and how it holds?

    Felt is non-woven textile made by matting and pressing wool fibers together helped by hot soapy water. It is considered as one of the oldest textiles. Once the felting process is complete and the fibers are fused together you obtain a new tissue which looks like a soft flat sculpture. Of course, flatness is not the only possibility. Imagine, a felt flower or a felt vase which is seamless and in one piece!
