Meet the Artisans

The Silk Road Bazaar

Silk Road Bazaar is a wholesale representative of marginalized artist groups located in Kyrgyzstan and throughout Central Asia. They connect with artists who are far from the capitals, who have limited market access, or who do not possess modern marketable skills but have carried on traditional craft culture.

Following the proverb, ‘the best way to know a man is to walk a thousand miles in his shoes,’ Silk Road believes that to know who we are working with and to understand their lives, we ourselves need to live like and with them. They live amongst their artist groups for an extended period of time, and during that time they help them become self-sustainable by developing their designs, management techniques, quality control and computer skills.

All designs and collaborations are original works of Central Asian artists and Silk Road Bazaar.

The Cutest Wolfgang will ever be

The rendering of Mozart in this creative and endearing little felt ornament makes you hear dance of the reed flutes off in the distance every time you see it. It really brings a special and personal touch to any home whether used for holidays or just display. It is very well done and I couldn't be happier.

Thank you!

OMG Julia! What an AMAZING review! I am so happy you found our felted wool Mozart! - He was so quiet on the shelf without you, until he found a happy home where his music can be heard in the dance of the reed flutes in the distance! Beautiful!! Thank you!! - We just started offering the adorable handmade felted wool figures that have played such an important role in our world history! Your review is pivotal to our customers when considering purchasing our fair trade felted wool ornaments! Thank you so much Julia!! - Michele Adams/Shopkeeper

Too cute for words

This little set just has Jospeh, Mary, baby Jesus, and a yurt in which to store them. I bought this because it was from Kyrgyzstan and my deceased brother lived there for 5 years so I have a soft spot for that country. It helps that their arts and crafts are beautiful. The Mary figurine has wonderful long braids. I love it. So cute. It is one of my collection of 7 Nativity sets from around the world. I would recommend this item and any other item from this store. I have another Nativity set from them. They do wonderful work in developing nation's helping break the cycle of poverty.

Thank you so much Sarah for your thoughtful and insightful 5 Star review of the Felt Yurt Nativity by Silk Road Bazaar! The story of your brother and your noted soft spot for Kyrgyzstan fills my heart with goodness! It is truly such a blessing to have such an incredible review left for the future customers of The Village Country Store. It is so difficult to decide online which items are a good fit for ourselves and your review assures customers of the attention to detail along with the skill the artisans! I cannot thank you enough for such an amazing outstanding review!! Thank you so very very much Sarah! Michele Adams/Shopkeeper

Timeless ornament

An adorable, old-fashioned looking ornament that is very lightweight, so it doesn’t bend the Christmas tree branch down. Very cute tiger!

Thank you so much Jennifer for your outstanding Five Star Review of the Tiger Felt Holiday Ornament! Your review is incredibly important to the fair trade movement and helps to instill trust and confidence in our artisan crafted gifts and decor. Thank goodness that it was just the 'right' weight and does not 'weigh' down the branches of your Christmas tree. That is a very good point and thank you for referencing it. They are adorable felted wool ornaments. I am so happy you are pleased! Thank you Jennifer! I hope to see you again soon. - Michele Adams/Shopkeeper
