These are part of our Continental Collection, featuring sweet, handcrafted animal booties representing each continent. Handmade in Kyrgyzstan.

Not intended for sleepwear.

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.

Adorable!!!

We bought these for a friend that takes care of our boys (two semi-behaved Great Danes!)...she is expecting and we truly love her and all she does for our little family. As animals lovers, we thought these we perfect to give her and their new bundle of joy from "the boys" (because really? If they could buy her something they would!!) I think she loved them and I'm sure anything from uncommon goods is just that...uncommon! I love giving gifts that are unique and thoughtful so I always start here!

Sweet baby shower gift

These are so adorable. I purchased these for my sister in law's baby shower, and she loved them. I'm go glad, because while each bootie is a little irregular (ie. non-symmetrical, fuzzy from packaging and felting process), they will serve the purpose of keeping the little one's feet cutely adorned and warm. I appreciate the creator's vision, and I would recommend similar gift ideas to friends and family.

So cute, I ordered another pair!

These baby booties are so cute, I actually ordered 3 pairs in all, 2 lions and 1 elephant. All my Mom's just loved them and I loved the fact that you could tell when side by side that they truly were handmade and well made.I don't see a downside other than they could come in larger sizes as I think toddlers, preschoolers and even adults would love them.

Don't look anything like the photograph

1

Read the "handmade" disclaimer, but the product that came vs. the product pictured is quite a different story. Minimal, sad fringe to the point that you can't tell what kind of animal this is supposed to be and the two-tones pictured don't translate to the actual item. They just look ... sloppy. Love Uncommon Goods and was so excited about these, but I can't gift them with any sincerity.
