Forever Blooms

City dwellers and busy bees can bask in the glory of greenery—watering and sunlight not required—with this felt succulent centerpiece. To create this one-of-a-kind work, Gularna Kydyrmyshova sources wool from local sheep farmers throughout Kyrgyzstan. She then separates the wool fibers, layers them on top of each other, sprinkles a mixture of hot water and soap over the wool and rolls repeatedly. Once the felt dries, it's handcrafted to resemble real rocks and succulents. You'll add a life-like touch to your coffee table, kitchen counter, or windowsill all season long. 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.
