The Seven Sisters artisan group from Kyrgyzstan is seven sisters from the Sharshambieva family who produce layered, mottled felt and silk products in the tradition of ala-kiyis. For thirteen years, the sisters have worked together, pressing vibrant felt into the rippling designs that tell stories of their culture. Today, the sisters’ work is able to support their large extended family.  “Our love for this work was instilled by our grandmother, a famous skilled worker,” says Farzana. The sisters can remember, as children, watching their grandmother lay patterns down on the carpet, and listening as she explained the legends associated with each design.
