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 Cactus Bloom Throw Pillows:

    These are super cute and the quality is great! Not sure I would call them "pillows" and they are quite expensive, but I just couldn't resist. My baby immediately wanted to play them them and see what they were all about.
