Seven Sisters is a family business in Kyrgyzstan that is carrying on a longstanding tradition of working with silk and wool to produce beautiful handmade scarves, clothes, and felt carpets.
The tradition was passed down to the women from their father who was a well-known Kyrgyz artist and still helps in the business as an advisor.
He teaches his daughters the importance of capturing the spirit of their people in the work they do. The family descends from nomadic tribes whose skill in using their herd’s wool was highly prized.
Their creations are made from local natural silk and merino sheep’s wool. The unique properties of the silk and wool make these products not only durable but also aesthetically appealing. Natural silk provides a pleasant, dry heat and can be worn year-round.
