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.

      Comments about UncommonGoods Banana Split Booties:

      These are cute, but too big and clunky for newborns. The appliquéd details are not symmetrical. I don't think they're worth the price after taxes and shipping. My advice? Skip these.

              Comments about UncommonGoods Banana Split Booties:

              This was a beautiful gift for my 3 month old nephew! I love that these are fair trade and being made by women that desperately need the proceeds. They are made of soft wool so they should last a good while with proper care. As soon as I received them in the mail, though, I noticed they were just so much bigger than I had expected. Sizing is listed on the shoe and the website as 0-12 months but this shoe is clearly for 6-12 months. No skidders to prevent slipping but those can be added DIY.
              All in all, this was a beautiful, no-guilt gift that's perfect for a 6-12 month baby.
