Meet the Artisans
Silk Road Bazaar is a wholesale representative of marginalized artist groups located in Kyrgyzstan and throughout Central Asia. They connect with artists who are far from the capitals, who have limited market access, or who do not possess modern marketable skills but have carried on traditional craft culture.
Following the proverb, ‘the best way to know a man is to walk a thousand miles in his shoes,’ Silk Road believes that to know who we are working with and to understand their lives, we ourselves need to live like and with them. They live amongst their artist groups for an extended period of time, and during that time they help them become self-sustainable by developing their designs, management techniques, quality control and computer skills.
All designs and collaborations are original works of Central Asian artists and Silk Road Bazaar.
We have always given ornaments each year to our children based on their interests or accomplishments that year. The tree is full of special memories. This Van Gogh is perfect. Well made and perfect size. Exactly as pictured.
Thank you so much for sharing your tree! I love your tradition of adding ornaments with meaning every year.
