Yurt Felt Holiday Ornament - Silk Road Bazaar (O)
Not your traditional holiday ornament, women in Kyrgyzstan made this ornament that represents the traditional home by hand from felt. With a loop for hanging, this piece measures 3 inches in diameter.
Meet the Artisans
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.

Just like the one I stayed at in Kyrgyzstan! Good quality, fast shipping. Happy to support fair trade. You won’t be sorry - just buy it!
Not only did I love the Kangaroo Christmas ornament that I ordered I can’t say enough about the wonderful customer service that I received. I will definitely order from The Village Country Store again.
As soon as my 7-year-old son spotted this felt dragon as I was browsing through The Village Country Store, he wanted it and immediately starting doing chores to save up his money! He is so excited with his new dragon and keeps showing it off to everyone and "flying" it around the house. The ornament is beautifully made and easily converts to a toy! Thank you so much to The Village Country Store for making my son's day!!!

Hummingbirds are special to me, and I was so happy to add this quality ornament to my wool collection of animals. Very pleased.
I LOVE IT! It is so cute and beautiful and different…you're not going to find this at Target. Its smart too…the little Yurt doubles as the storage for all the pieces to pack away till next Christmas.
