Spread Your Wings

Delicate beauty meets modest brilliance with this artisan-crafted accessory. This eye-catching accessory is created using a unique needle felting technique by Kyrgyz tailors through the aid of Gulnara Kydyrmyshova, an entrepreneurial local artisan who has helped revive and bring attention to the distinctive handicraft of this recently-independent nation and its people. Using this special process, dyed wool fibers sourced from local sheep are felted directly into feather-light, hand-spun silk. A fierce flutter of the butterfly's wings adds a sculptural scallop to the ends of each accessory. Luxurious and lightweight, this sensational scarf can add pizzazz to outfits during summer and winter, as well as in-between seasons. Handmade in Kgrgyzstan.

created by

Gulnara Kydyrmyshova

When Kyrgyzstan became an independent country in 1991, most of the nation's talented artists fled to larger and more creative cities. But maker Gulnara Kydyrmyshova stayed behind and established a small retail store with the vision to revive Kyrgyz craftsmanship and help relieve her nation of poverty through the trade of handmade felted works. She started by conducting free sewing classes to unemployed women in her community. For over a decade, she has supported local artisans by selling felted handicrafts in her store.
