The Union of National Handicraftsmen of the Kyrgyz Republic was born from the concept of locally sourced workshop, producing handmade goods reflecting Kyrgyz heritage. The Union was founded by artists, developed as a small community of artisans whose products achieved wide popularity for both their design and the quality.
Since those early days, the Union is more than just a workshop, but the creative community that not only encourages its craftsmen to develop their skills, but also contributes to the neighborhoods' development thanks to workplaces for women, widely struggling with unemployment in Kyrgyzstan. Moreover, the artisans of the Union are positively contributing to the traditional crafts preservation.
The Union of National Handicraftsmen of the Kyrgyz Republic produces a wide range of goods, still sourcing locally from the raw wool, handloom clothes and other natural materials. Thanks to the handicraft techniques and sourcing from the Asian culture inspiration, all items are unique.
