Handmade Felt Boots from Kyrgyzstan - light brown
Felting connects fibers through compression and agitation. Kyrgyz felt unfolds the often agitated but infinitely compelling Central Asian region -- bringing feeling to the forgotten world. It is a non-woven fabric made by repeatedly pressing together wet sheep’s wool. It is durable, colorful and comfortable. Because the fabric is non-woven, it can be shaped, molded and added to, much like wet clay. Together with Yurts, mountains and nomadic traditions, Felt is an iconographic material that makes up the literal fabric of this stunning country.
