Avoca-toes

How do you know when these adorable avocados are ripe? Give them a squeeze and you'll feel perfectly squishy little baby feet. Handcrafted in small batches, these booties are made from natural wool, which is dyed, spun, and felted, before being cut and stitched with delicious details. A cute addition to photo ops and a clever gift for avocado-toast-loving new parents, you can also feel good knowing that purchasing a pair helps support the Kyrgyz tailors who craft the foodie booties collection using traditional techniques. Designed by Gulnara Kydymyshova. 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.
