Materials

Mila stiches each piece in her home in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan from organically produced Kyrgyz felt. She cares deeply about creating sustainably-produced pieces that are both funcional and fun. 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. Kyrgyzstan boasts a unique natural environment, and the connection between the Kyrgyz and the land is reflected in their art. Before forced collectivization in the 1930s, Kyrgyz nomads roamed the high altitude pastures with their flocks of sheep and yaks, living in decorative felt yurts. The traditional designs were symbolic of daily and cultural life – sitting drinking horsemilk, watching eagles, the importance of wolves, horses, sheep and yaks.
