One Fish, Two Fish

Keep your little guppy's toes from getting clammy with these fanciful fish booties. They're handcrafted 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. Each pair features felt shorn from local sheep and vibrant stitch-work. Handmade in Kyrgyzstan.

Due to the handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Kyrgyzstan

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.
