Featured: Silk Road Bazaar Silk & Wool Scarves

Silk Road Bazaar silk and wool scarves from Kyrgyzstan, an underdeveloped and remote country in Central Asia. I was charmed by the beauty of the richly colored silk scarves imbedded with wool felt. The felt motifs are inspired by the petroglyphs from the many prehistoric cave paintings found in the country. Felting has a long tradition here and these artists, who are located far from the capitals, continue to do their work in the age-old tradition of Central Asia. These scarves are definitely unique and are a must have accessory for the season.
