ABOUT THE ARTISANS
This scarf 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 and hand spin the silk, creating stunning, contemporary designs. They receive fair wages, work in safe conditions, and are making their way out of poverty.
