100% NATURAL ... Using natural fibers and eco-friendly resources, we work with our artisans to produce handcrafted products in Kyrgyzstan. Silk Road Bazaar sells goods produced by marginalized artist groups located in Central Asia. We connect with artists who are far from the capitals, who have limited market access, who do not possess modern marketable skills but have carried on traditional craft culture. Our fibers are locally-sourced to help provide sustainable livelihoods for rural farmers and craftsmen.
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.
Empowering women in Kyrgyzstan through the creation and distribution of beautiful felted products like Zooties, Nuno Scarves, Ornaments, Felted Soaps.
