Inspired by landscape of Kyrgyzstan. Feltmaking is an environmentally responsible practice, customary for Altaic people of Central Asia. It produces minimal waste and allows to enjoy all benefits of wool: breathability, capacity to absorb sweat and provide warmth. 

Made in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan by a family felting shop. Inis, her daughter and granddaughter make modern clothing using traditional practices and ornaments. They have a walnut tree in the garden, under which these items are felted. 

Material: 100% wool and silk

Care: Felted wool is easy to handle, yet precious. Please treat it with care: hand wash in warm (never hot) water with gentle shampoo or pH neutral soap. Lay flat to dry. Never put felted items in a dryer.
