      In 1996 Gulnara Kyrdyrmyshova incorporated "Kork, Fiber Art Group." "Kork" means "hope" in the Kyrgyz language. At that time many artists faced unemployment and required a place to express their talents. Kydyrmyshova recognized this and quickly organized "Kork, Fiber Art Group" to provide local artists with an outlet to sell their works.

      Kyrdyrmyshova's focus has always been on the promotion of felt products; however she works with artists who are engaged in various mediums. "Kork, Fiber Art Group" has been providing artists in Kyrgyzstan with a place to promote their felt works, other textiles, and ceramics for over 15 years.

      "Kork, Fiber Art Group" has helped to sustain interest in the arts, provide artists with employment, and kept the tradition of felting alive during times of severe poverty and economic depression. Kyrdyrmyshova and her associated artists have a deep interest in encouraging and integrating traditional Kyrgyz design and patterns in their artwork and educating people about their felt history.

      Since 2012 Silk Road Bazaar and Kork have partnered to bring Kyrgyz crafts and design to a global audience.
