Central Asia

On a dirt track in the Tian Shan Mountains in Central Asia, I discovered one-of- a-kind absolutely unique handcrafted sheepskin vests. From the mountains, one can see the wisdom of ages embedded in the spirit of the nomads and shepherds. The region is awesome. Mountains loom over head; fog smothers the forests and snow falls everywhere. Our hearts through the vests and sites recognized the sacredness and excitement of the land. There are forests, meadows and small glaciers on the mountains, everywhere. From the Altai glaciers along the Chinese – Central Asian border to the Pamirs, the scenery and atmosphere is breathtaking. The locals wear sheepskin vests – 9 months of the year. Each vest is simple but absolutely unique: no two are alike. They are versatile and warm and scruffy and even kind-of- wild with small imperfections because they were made from hundreds of different pieces of sheepskin: extraordinary! That’s what I was looking for – a practical, flexible, handy, all natural, not-run- of-the- mill vest with a fresh look that was 100% handmade. Only from the steppes and mountains of Central Asia.
