A Brush with Beauty

For those who consider their daily personal style choices to be a painterly pursuit, then this artistically inclined scarf can be considered a stroke of pure genius! The brilliant flurry of brushstrokes is rendered using a unique needle felting technique by Kyrgyz tailors through the aid of Gulnara Kydyrmyshova, an entrepreneurial local artisan who has helped revive and bring attention to the distinctive handicraft of this recently-independent nation and its people. Using this unique process, dyed wool fibers sourced from local sheep are fused to create imaginative images inspired by the painting process that can enrich the wardrobe of any artist, art educator, designer, or style savvy woman with an eye for the exotic. Handmade in Kyrgyzstan.

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.
