Janis Joplin Figurine, Kyrgyzstan

Janis Joplin was certainly one of the greats, and this ornament really captures her.  It is hand felted by women artisans in a fair trade cooperative in Kyrgyzstan.  Note the superb attention to detail in the felting.  It has a loop for hanging and will look great as a decoration anywhere in your home or car.

Measures approximately 4.5" tall.


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.
