Product Description

There aren’t many decorations that are transferable, but this cute artisan little bunny is just that. Handmade from felt in an egg-shape with two little flappy feet and two large floppy ears, he looks equally at home on a Christmas tree as he does on an Easter branch. Simple, but highly effective he is hand-sewn together with a blanket stitch, and details added, by hand, in yellow. His face is delicately hand-embroidered and he has ruddy little pink cheeks. This small operation in Kyrgyzstan employs thirty-five women, who are mostly retired housewives and women with large families. This is a first for Ian Snow having never traded with anyone in this area before. Employment is hard to come by and these employees work at home so that they can earn and tend to their families. Felting is traditional in Kyrgyzstan and some of the population still live in yurts and in the summer months follow their grazing cattle. The felt products are handmade, by pressing wool and felted using water and soap. After this procedure the felt material is dried in the sun, and then later cut, sewn and embellished. The supplier says "our team works well respecting deadlines, being open to new ideas and initiatives”. They have many plans in the pipeline to aid production and employee welfare. This bunny is also available in red and green.
