Inspired by Central Asian folk motives. 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 Chuy Valley of North Kyrgyzstan by a female collective, started by a young woman Aizada. She is an observant muslim and a mother of two. Her group is focused on different felting techniques. Nuno felting, that combines wool fibes and sheer silk fabric, was used for this garment.

Material: 100% wool and silk

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