This ornament was handmade in a fair trade women's cooperative in Kyrgyzstan.  The women were facing unemployment, severe poverty and economic depression, when 15 years ago the cooperative was formed, giving the artisans a global market for their extraordinary work.  They use traditional felting techniques with  contemporary designs to create stunning works of art.  The women receive fair wages, work in safe conditions, and are gradually finding their way out of poverty.
