In Fine Feather

This spectacular silken scarf has no trouble getting the attention of adoring admirers. An eye-catching addition to any ensemble, this accessory is created using a unique needle felting technique by Kyrgyz tailors through the aid of Gulnara Kydyrmyshova. As an entrepreneurial Kyrgyz artisan herself, Kydyrmyshova 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 peacock's distinctive plummage 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 Kyrgyzstan.

Gulnara Kydyrmyshova

In 1991 when Kyrgyzstan became an independent country, most of the country's talented artists fled to larger and more creative cities. However, specially trained artist Gulnara Kydyrmyshova stayed behind and established a small retail store called Kork, with the vision to revive Kyrgyz craftsmanship and help relieve her nation of poverty through the trade of handmade felted works. For about twelve years she supported local craftsmanship by selling felted handicrafts in her store. She also conducted free sewing classes to unemployed women in her community.

In 2011 Kydyrmyshova connected with Peace Corps Volunteer Andrew Kuschner, and together Kuschner and Kydyrmyshova worked together to bring Kyrgyz handicrafts to the American market. Through their work together they have been able to bring stable work to over twenty artisans and create an interest in the revival of traditional craftsmanship amongst the local population. collection

      The felt and silk combo wasn't weighted well. The felt design was on one side, the other side was unattractive. Silk was very flimsy, strings were hanging off scarf. Beautiful but impractical.
