Item #28977 - approx. 4''-5'' diam.
Handmade in Kyrgyzstan in studios founded and run by women artisans, these felt flower brooches double as hair accents. Made with locally-sourced wool, they are crafted using the traditional felting methods perfected in nomadic regions such as the Silk Road in Central Asia centuries ago.
The women who make these flowers are not only strong, independent, and paid fairly for their work, they are also helping preserve a local tradition for which this part of the world is known.
Each flower has both a clip and a pin on the back, so you can clip it in your hair, pin it to your lapel, or wear it any other way you choose. Because these are handmade, they will vary some in size, shape, and color tone. The size ranges from 4'' to 5'' in diameter.
